"I can confirm that I am extraordinarily happy at the moment. It was crazy when photos of Samantha and me made it into the papers," Johnson told The Sun.

"I am very happy but when the focus is on me, I do feel a bit confused and weird about it. I am not that comfortable about going into lots of detail because it's not just me that is involved.

"I have seen Les Mis and I thought Samantha was great in It. I cried a lot when I saw her perform. But I'm a bit of a softie. It is the first time I have seen Sam perform."

He has been dating Barks, who rose to fame on the BBC One talent show I'd Do Anything, for several months.
