It used to be her dad hitting the back of the net, but Alan Shearer’s daughter Hollie appears to have scored in her own right after confirming a new romance with rugby ace Joe Marchant.
The 25-year old singer has shared numerous shots with the popular Harlequins and England Centre, who has represented his country four times since entering the international fold in 2019.
Photos shared across social media suggest her relationship with the London based hunk, 26, is still in its early stages, with Joe first appearing on her Instagram grid during a romantic trip to Dubai in March.

But Hollie clearly had her shooting boots on, having spent her time in the United Arab Emirates enjoying picturesque boat rides, boozy afternoons and late nights out with her new boyfriend.
In one image the singer is pictured sitting alongside Joe aboard a yacht as the shirtless rugby player wraps a protective arm around her shoulders.
In another the pair enjoy a boozy brunch with friends as they relax close to the Arab state’s distinctively designed Jumeirah Hotel, while others find them dressed for a night out at one Dubai’s numerous nightspots.

More recently Hollie and Joe showed off equally flamboyant outfits in honour of Burning Man Project, an annual event at Black Rock City in the Nevada desert every August.
The singer has previously given her Instagram followers an insight into her glamorous lifestyle.
At the end of 2021, she was holidaying in a lavish Maldives resort and shared photos of herself posing in a skimpy blue bikini during a sunbathing and snorkelling session.

As well as living her jet-set lifestyle to the fullest, Hollie has been working hard on her music career in recent years, often sharing snaps in the studio recording new songs.
Last May she released her first track Love You Better from her EP to stream and download. She now has just over 15,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.
And she already has a list of top stars backing her to make it big, including fellow Geordies Ant and Dec, Scarlett Moffatt and her ex-England and Newcastle ace dad.

Family: Proud dad Alan regularly features on Hollie’s Instagram account and no doubt approves of her sportsman boyfriend
Hollie posted about her recent single: ‘I’ve been writing/working on this song for so long I can’t quite believe that release day is here and I can finally share it with you all.
‘What I love most about music is how you can connect with it, I love how it can help you emotionally through any mood you’re feeling. (Well, it does for me anyway!)
‘Country music is a massive inspiration to me mostly because of how real and raw it is. I feel when something is written from the heart, people will automatically relate to it.. This song is the first song from my EP, I have 4 more songs I’m releasing over the next couple of months and I really hope you like them!’
Her proud dad Alan, who shared the track on Twitter with his massive following of 788,000 Twitter followers, said: ‘Well Done Hol.’
Hollie’s other hits include Leave Right Now, Thank You, Sauvignon Blanc and 1400 Days.

Former footballer Alan no doubt approves of Hollie’s sportsman boyfriend, having scored 30 international goals and winning 63 England caps during an eighteen year playing career.
The striker began his career with Southampton, where his goal scoring exploits earned him his first England cap in a 1992 friendly against France in 1992.
He signed for unfancied Blackburn Rovers for a then English record £3.6 million later that year, with his goals guiding the club to their one-and-only Premier League title in 1995 – Shearer’s only piece of silverware.

Despite overtures from Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, Shearer would transfer from Blackburn to boyhood club Newcastle United in 1996 – weeks after helping England reach the semi-final of Euro ’96.
After a difficult spell with his country – the striker had not scored in 12 games prior to the tournament – Shearer announced himself on the international stage that summer, scoring five goals across five games before England lost on penalties to bitter rivals Germany, with current Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate missing their last spot kick.
He retired from England duty in 2000, before hanging up his boots for good six-years later having become the Premier League’s highest ever scorer – a record he still holds.
Highly regarded Marchant has won international recognition at U18 and U20 level, winning a junior world title with the latter before going on to earn full honours for his country.
While not selected for the 2019 Rugby World Cup, the Winchester born sportsman has since represented his country in their opening game at the 2020 Autumn Nations Cup.
