DJ Calvin Harris has opened up about his headline-grabbing romance with pop superstar Taylor Swift for the first time, hailing the relationship as “absolutely fantastic” and revealing the singer has made him “insanely happy”.

The Scottish dance music star has been dating the Shake It Off songstress since February, and although neither of them has publicly confirmed the romance, they have occasionally shown fans photographs of them together and have been pictured hand-in-hand while out and about.

Now Harris has finally broken his silence on the much talked-about relationship and revealed he and Swift are amused by the lengths commentators will go to to keep the story at the top of the news agenda.

“It’s going absolutely fantastic. It’s interesting because obviously there’s different things written about it every day and even if we don’t do anything publicly for a while, someone will make something up…” he told Britain’s KISS FM Breakfast Show.

“For me it could be a lot worse and I’d still be like insanely happy with her so I’m good with it… It does get more and more ridiculous, from me apparently being allergic to cats or Taylor and I are moving in together or we’re getting married next week.

“It’s a lot but you’ve just got to take it how it is which is that it’s a news story that people read but it’s just not real life…

“Then on the other hand, real life is happening. There’s a whole bunch of times where we’ve been hanging out and nobody’s clocked it (noticed). It’s not like every single time we go out, we get a photograph taken of us.”
