The Metro reports that Geri has confirmed her relationship with the comedian.

When asked if there was any truth in the rumours, Geri admitted: "Yes. It's been a whirlwind."

Geri didn't however give too much else away about their relationship.

She cryptically said: "All I want is to be in a loving relationship."

When pushed as to whether Russ was her ideal man, Geri continued to be evasive.

She stated: "Is he my ideal man? I'm choosy. I want someone who's trustworthy, sweet and kind."

You're not really telling us a lot there Geri!

The news comes after reports suggested this weekend that there was already trouble in paradise for the couple due to Geri becoming bored with Russell for being 'too intelligent'.

Still, if things don't work out with Russell there could be another man on the horizon for Geri, in the form of Ed Sheeran.

Talking to The Metro today, Ed recalled how he had hung out with the singer during the Olympics closing ceremony- the same place Russell and Geri allegedly first got together.

A smitten Ed seemed to have nothing but praise for Geri, telling The Metro: "Geri Halliwell is a very cool person."

Best watch your back eh Russell?
