Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are said to be in the early stages of dating.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing and looking back at Calvin Harris' comments regarding Taylor Swift last year he's probably wishing he kept his mouth shut!

The British music producer is rumoured to be dating Taylor since photos emerged of them holding hands at Kenny Chesney's Nashville concert on Thursday.

They had previously been snapped together at a  Whole Foods store the previous evening. 

Of course, the 31-year-old Brit and the 25-year-old 'Shake if Off' singer may well be just good friends, but even so his Tinder comments are a tad embarrassing now that they're hanging out.

Speaking on UK radio station Capital FM last November, he said he would swipe left if he saw Taylor's Tinder profile.

For those not in the know, swiping left means you reject the person.  He did, however, say she looks lovely.

"She looks lovely but she's the opposite of my type," he said.

He also said he was a "bit scared" of Nicki Minaj but gave fellow Brit singer Ellie Goulding the thumbs up, although they had worked together on 'Outside'.

Harris has previously dated The Voice UK judge Rita Ora, but they split acrimoniously in 2013 after a year together.

The superstar DJ then dated model Aarika Wolf after they met on the set of his music video Blame.

They had been spotted out together many times, including on holidays, and attended a Grammy Awards after-party together.

However, they are thought to have gone their separate ways in the run-up to the Brit Awards in February.

"They were both into each other for a long time but it just didn’t work out and they’ll stay friends," an insider told British newspaper The Sun.

“Calvin is always really busy and is constantly travelling around to DJ gigs so he’s happy to be single for a while."

The dating rumours regarding Taylor began after the BRITs where they were spotted deep in conversation.  Taylor reportedly then travelled to Calvin's Las Vegas concert earlier this month.
