They swung by the city's celebrity hot spot Casa Cipriani and were seen hanging out with mutual good friend Jack Antonoff, who is rumoured to have 'set them up'.

A restaurant-goer who saw the alleged new love birds spoke to Page Six, they said: "They sat next to each other at a banquette in the lounge."

The source also revealed to the publication that the pop stars were seen “cuddling and kissing" and had “security around them.”

Multiple pictures from Thursday night show the 'Midnights' songstress and The 1975 frontman holding hands as they entered the Casa Cipriani, with Taylor also placing her hand on Matty's once they sat down.

Healy wore a black blazer, trousers and a white button-down shirt, whilst Swift opted for a yellow summer dress.

Swifties instantly took to Twitter to react to the most concrete evidence that the musicians are dating – and fans were divided!

In the caption to one of the first photos shared of the 'date night', a fan account wrote: "a swifties dad took this picture just a couple minutes ago and she sent this in our group chat. matty and taylor are together- confirmed!! [sic]"

"It’s official now and anyone that says otherwise is in denial," another posted.

However, another still refuted the claims, writing: "Jack is there, so it obviously can’t be a date! Let’s not jump to conclusions besties!"

Some were quick to believe that the pictures solidified the romance rumours, whilst many others believe the duo are just good friends; they've known one another for over a decade.
