"THIS Morning presenter Matt Johnson has told of his love for Les Miserables star Samantha Barks – and admitted he CRIED when he first saw her on the big screen.
Rising British star Samantha had been linked to her co-star Russell Crowe but The Sun revealed last month how she was actually secretly dating daytime favourite Matt.
The beaming telly star says the couple — who were spotted getting cosy at the Elle Style Awards — are besotted with each other.
He says: “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 — I started getting lots of tweets.
“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 feel a bit weird and I get all stuttery.
“But the Elle Style Awards was a good party and it’s so classy.
“For a boy from the Valleys it was an entirely different world to the one I’ve grown up in!”
Welshman Matt has been dating Samantha — who first rose to fame five years ago on BBC1 talent show I’d Do Anything — for several months but he says the gorgeous actress shouldn’t expect any big romantic gestures.
He says: “I am not a massive romantic. I am more the kind of guy to have the kettle on as you walk through the door — little things like driving someone to the train station, not big gestures.
“I believe in love at first sight but it’s maybe more of a chemical reaction.
“There has to be that spark but I have to get to know a person before I fall in love.”
Matt says he was thrilled at Samantha’s Hollywood success and got all emotional watching her in the Oscar-winning movie.
He says: “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. The scene at the barricades is very moving.
“That is someone in love right there, taking the bullet and it had everything for me. It is the first time I have seen Sam perform.”
