They were virtually inseparable at Glastonbury, where Simons was seen comforting her following the news that her Nana had died. News of their reunion was publicly announced on the social network site Facebook on July 7, and both have changed their profile from single to say that they are "in a relationship" with each other.
Their friends quickly bombarded their pages with messages of congratulations. "We knew it! What a hullabaloo," the Sun quoted Glasto chief Emily Eavis as having written. The two are fast patching their relationship again and are looking forward to giving it another try. "Nice to be in a relationship," Simons had told Allen.
"Ed was there for Lily when she really needed him and that has brought them closer together," a friend said. "They have decided to give it another go," the friend added.
