Emma is also said to have ‘unliked’ social media posts of HRVY’s that she had previously interacted with.

In September, HRVY told the paper that he and Emma were ‘good friends’ and that they were set to meet up for a ‘game of tennis’.
He said: ‘I’ve spoken to her since she won. What an absolute star. She’s amazing. We chat all the time. We’re close. We’re good friends. She’s just stunned about winning. I watched the match with my whole family, like the rest of the nation. She is a lovely girl and she makes me proud to be British.
‘She’s waving the flag for us… I’m going to play tennis with her soon. I’m sure she can probably teach me a thing or two.’

However, after meeting Mimi at the National Television Awards, he is said to be ‘completely loved up’ with the rising star.
A source told The Sun: ‘HRVY and Mimi are completely loved up. Things are pretty serious between them. They both know each other’s families and their friends have met.’
Mimi rose to fame playing Leanna Cavanagh on Emmerdale and spent three years on the soap before being killed off by Meena Jutla.
Emma made sporting history over summer by winning the US Open – the first British woman to win a major title for 44 years since Virginia Wade lifted the Wimbledon trophy in 1977. She is also the first qualifier in history to lift a grand slam.
