Leona Lewis is reportedly set to get married this weekend

LOVED UP: Leona Lewis and Dennis Jauch

SINGER LEONA Lewis could soon be tying the knot, after new reports suggest the 34-year-old singer will be getting married this weekend.

Lewis has been in a relationship with choreographer Dennis Jauch for nine years, and the couple confirmed their engagement in November 2018.

A source close to the star told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column that the couple are reportedly planning to marry over the weekend in Italy.

“Leona is madly in love with Dennis and they are both so excited to get hitched this weekend. They have flown their nearest and dearest out to Italy for the ceremony and no expense has been spared,” said the source.

"She has spent months and months making sure everything is perfect for the big day and they have loads of pals coming from the UK as well as the US. Because they live in the States, their friends and family don’t all get to meet up much, so it’s going to be a really special day.”

Lewis - who shot to fame in 2006 when she won The X Factor - met Dennis in 2010 when he was working as her back-up dancer.

They got engaged toward the end of last year, and in December, Lewis marked the end of her single days by organising a hen party which saw her take 12 of her friends to a performance of 'Briefs: Close Encounters' at Spiegeltent in London's Leicester Square.

The Bleeding Love singer also took to social media to confirm her engagement, admitting at the time she "can't believe" she's about to be someone's "wife", though she's looking forward to a "new adventure”.

She wrote: "My heart is singing the happiest song it's ever sung! I'm bursting with joy and overcome with emotion that I get to embark on this new adventure with my best friend, my partner in crime, my ride or die! @dennisjauch I can't wait to be your wife. eeeek wife! What?!

"Argh! Hahahahaha I still can't believe it [bride emoji] I dreamed you up and you came true.

"The most caring, kindhearted and inspiring person I've had the privilege to lets go have a big ol' partyyyyyyyy (sic)"
