Fans think Tom Holland and Zendaya are engaged

Tom and Zendaya seem as loved-up as ever, so it came as no surprise when headlines started to crop up reporting that the co-stars-turned-partners were engaged!

However, the claims have since been disproved as Zendaya's protective mother put the rumours to rest. She posted to her Instagram Story: "Clickbait typically refers to the practice of writing sensationalized or misleading headlines in order to attract clicks on a piece of content."

It didn't take long for fans to realise that the post was referring to the speculation about the Spider-Man stars becoming 'fiancés'.

But that doesn't mean the loving boyfriend wasn't there in spirit! Zendaya revealed on the red carpet that the first person she would message following a victory would be her other half – adorable!
