Taylor has described her latest work as ‘a love letter to love in all of its maddening, passionate, exciting, enchanting, horrific, tragic, wonderful glory.’ 

In January, Joe admitted that he doesn’t think his relationship with the singer should be seen as ‘strangely private’ as other people have interpreted it. 

Speaking in an interview in MR PORTER’s weekly digital magazine The Journal on Thursday, the actor, 27, explained: ‘I don’t think anyone you meet on the streets would just spill their guts out to you, and therefore why should I? 

‘And then that is defined as being “strangely private”. Fine. But I don’t think it is. I think it’s normal.’
