Lottie and former tennis player Lewis were revealed to be seeing each other in July 2020.
The pair are said to have bonded over the grief of losing their respective loved ones.
She sadly lost her mother and sister in recent years and Lewis lost Caroline Flack in February 2020.
Lottie’s sister Félicité, 18, died after an accidental drug overdose, three years after the death of her mother Johannah, who died of cancer.

It’s understood Lottie became better acquainted with Lewis at a house party in May 2020 hosted by Caroline’s close friend Lou Teasdale, 36, which was held to mark three months since her tragic passing.
In late July that year, a source exclusively told MailOnline: ‘Lewis and Lottie have grown close after spending time together at a party at Lou’s house.
‘They have been meeting up in secret for weeks but their newfound friendship hasn’t gone unnoticed by mutual pals.
‘Not all of Caroline’s friends are happy with how the situation appears to be developing but can understand that both Lottie and Lewis have been there for each other as a shoulder to cry on.’

Caroline died by suicide in her London home, days before she was due to face trial for assaulting Lewis, who she had been in a relationship with for just over six months.
The TV presenter was arrested in December for assault and charged with attacking the model at her home in Islington.
Lewis dropped his assault complaint against Caroline but prosecutors pursued it and the couple was told not to have any contact.
It was confirmed following the inquest that Caroline took her own life after hearing she would definitely be prosecuted for assaulting her boyfriend, a coroner ruled.
