People may recognise Vick from her appearances on Strictly Come Dancing or from her Human Rights work such as launching Made By Sport with Anthony Joshua and Prince Harry, which helps disadvantaged children through sport.

Who is Calvin Harris and who has he dated in the past?

Behind the stage name Calvin Harris is Adam Richard Wiles, who is a Scottish producer, DJ, singer and songwriter as well as a successful philanthropist.

His third studio album 18 Months featuring Rihanna’s record We Found Love established the Dumfries-born’s fame internationally, leading him onto a whole host of awards and top hits including How Deep Is Your Love, One Kiss and Summer.
