Nadine Coyle’s bandmates were shocked to discover a Hollywood star had tattooed a nude image of her.

The singer, who recently reunited with her Girls Aloud bandmates for their 21st anniversary, has never shied away from discussing certain aspects of her life and this is no different. Although Nadine has remained largely quiet about her love life since splitting from longtime boyfriend Jason Bell, it seems she’s thinking about an ex.

Nadine, 38, who moved to Los Angeles at the height of Girls Aloud’s fame, previously dated Desperate Housewives actor Jesse Metcalfe and seems to have left a lasting impression on the 44-year-old. In a new interview, the Derry-born chart-topper opened up about the ink he dedicated to her.

The mother-of-one revealed that she and Jesse dated for three years. During their romance, he had no idea they were one fifth of the biggest British girl group of the century, known for hits such as The Promise and Untouchable.

“He was obsessed with me, completely obsessed. He has a tattoo of me on his arm, the obsession continues,” she told Gay Times. Although her bandmate Cheryl Tweedy had no idea, Kimberley Walsh admitted she remembered the romantic gesture.

Coyle continued: And he had it done on a TV show, one of those tattoo shows. He took a picture and I said, ‘That’s really scary,’ because I was like, ‘Do you realize I was 17 in that picture you tattooed?'” She added that the tattoo “is still the egg. ” and added: “It’s my breasts, it’s my waist, it’s my face.”

Jesse previously talked about the tattoo he got during an episode of LA Ink. He said: “I had this idea of ​​a female angel reading a human heart to mine. It’s not that I wasn’t over the breakup, it’s just that I desperately wanted to remember what it felt like to be in that i will never go there again.

Even though he and Nadine may no longer be together, the actor says it’s his “favorite” tattoo and he will never have it removed or covered up.

On their relationship during their time on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Nadine said of Jesse: “My second boyfriend was an actor and I liked him on TV. I always thought he was so hot and I did an interview and it was one of those ‘Who do you like?’ Things and I said the gardener from Desperate Housewives.

Asked if she meant Jesse, who she met on a Girls Aloud tour of Australia in 2006, she replied: “Yeah, I met him, we had a great night, it was like everything was fine . He came to me and I thought.” “Woo, you smell amazing.” I went to the bathroom and he came up behind me, pulled me back and said, “You’re going to the gents.” It wasn’t that, it was the ladies, but he said he just wanted to tell me something. ”

She described him as “really passionate and funny.”
