Clocking up over 70,000 likes in five hours, some of his 1.6million followers commented that they thought they made a good couple.

With one die-hard fan even remembering Wes said Rita was his “crush” in his Love Island intro.

The 20-year-old looked pleased with himself as he sat next to pop princess Rita on a sofa after her gig tonight.

Dressed casually in a black T-shirt, trousers and trainers, Wes finished his look with a blue baseball cap that he wore back to front and several gold chains.

Sat snuggled into him, Rita looked relaxed in a brightly coloured tie-dyed all in one still wearing her stage make-up and hair.

The Sun Online has contacted Wes and Rita’s reps for comment.
