Fans can look forward to roaring along to the ‘football’s coming home’ refrain of Three Lions at Wembley this weekend.

But at least one person from England will have split loyalties on whether or not to sing for Italy on Sunday – and she has a better voice than most.

The romance of pop star Catherine Harding, 30, and Italian midfield general Jorginho, 29, has even more highs and lows than a power ballad.

Miss Harding, who made it to the knockout stages on ITV show The Voice last year, embarked on a relationship with the player after he secretly split from his Italian wife Natalia Leteri.

Most of the partners of the Italy team were not able to attend the semi-final in London on Tuesday night because of Covid travel restrictions.

Midfielder Marco Verratti’s French girlfriend Jessica Aidi had to celebrate on social media. Miss Aidi, 30, is now a catwalk model – but she is said to have first met Verratti, 28, while working as a waitress in a Parisian restaurant in 2019. 

Jessica Melena, 30, the wife of striker Ciro Immobile, watched the game at home with their three children. She quit her criminology university studies after meeting Immobile, 31.

Singer Miss Harding, who was born in the London borough of Enfield before moving to Ireland, also has a son by actor Jude Law. Miss Harding gave birth to the actor’s fifth child, called Ada, in 2015 after a brief relationship.

Meanwhile, Jorginho had been with Miss Leteri for eight years and the pair have daughter Alicia and son Victor. They married at a lavish ceremony in Brazil in 2017, but their relationship became strained after he joined Chelsea the following year for £57million.

Miss Harding, who uses the stage name Cat Cavelli, announced her second pregnancy in March last year but did not reveal that the father was Jorginho. 

His identity was leaked a month later after she left clues on Instagram. An insider said: ‘Cat fell hard for him and has struggled to keep their romance a secret. She told Jorginho she was pregnant just before her announcement.’

A month before Miss Harding revealed her pregnancy, she said: ‘I definitely write a lot of love songs, especially last year. I entered into a new relationship and that definitely gave me loads of creativity and inspiration.’ The lyrics of one song go: ‘I know this kind of love can’t leave any traces.’

Jorginho, whose full name is Jorge Luiz Frello Filho, was born in Brazil but moved to Italy when he was 15 and later chose to play for his new country. 

Miss Harding gave birth to their son last September and announced the news with an Instagram picture showing Jax’s tiny feet and clothing emblazoned with his name. She wrote: ‘How crazy life is and how wonderful.’ 

A giant in our path

One of the stars of Italy’s run to the final stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, 22, has conceded just three goals in six games during the Azzurri’s run to the final and secured himself a summer switch from AC Milan to top French side Paris St Germain.

The 6ft 5ins star looks even bigger when towering over girlfriend Alessia Elefante, 21, who can only snuggle into his bicep as they walk together, arm in arm.
