Over the last two weeks, we've been treated to all the delights that come with a double-tap-worthy celebrity romance And, this time, it's all thanks to singer Ariana Grande and her now-rumoured fiancé, Saturday Night Live comic Pete Davidson.
It all started when, Ariana, 24, confirmed her split from on-off boyfriend of almost two years Mac Miller on May 10. Then, Pete, also 24, announced that he had broken up with his two-year-long girlfriend Cazzie David, the daughter of comedic great Larry David on May 16.
Following those announcements, over the past 24 days Ariana and Pete, who originally met back in March 2016 when she guest presented on SNL, have become besotted with each other (and we have the Instagram pictures to prove it…)

Here, we document Ariana and Pete's whirlwind romance, starting with a definitive timeline of their blossoming relationship…

Ariana was also snapped with a phone case that looks just one that Pete has. Tellingly, it's shaped as an emoji cloud (the same emoji Ariana and Pete have been dropping on each other's Instagram pictures).
