CENTRAL CEE is back with Madeline Argy, weeks after she called their relationship toxic.
I can reveal the rapper who spent ten weeks at No1 this summer with Sprinter, has decided to give things another go and enjoyed a date night in London with the TikTok star on Wednesday.
The couple were seen cosying up together at an after-party after singer-songwriter Passenger’s headline show at Union Chapel in Islington.
They hung out at the bar and chatted with Ed Sheeran, who was also at the gig.
A source said: “They arrived together and were chatting for ages.
“They mostly kept to themselves, apart from when Ed came over to talk to them.
“But it was clear they are back in each other’s lives and are close again, despite what’s been said.”
Central Cee, whose real name is Oakley Caesar-Su, has now racked up seven Top Ten tunes and become one of the most in-demand artists in British rap.
Meanwhile Madeline, who posted her first TikTok in March 2021, has built up 4.8million followers on the app, meaning she can make a living as a full-time influencer.
They were together for more than a year before confirming their split in September, when she spoke about the ups and downs of their romance on a podcast.
She said: “It was a lot of back and forth and in a fun, toxic way, when you’re like, oh God, this needs to end, but f** it, let’s go on one more trip together or let’s have one more night.”
‘Play the game’ On his single Too Much last month, Central Cee hinted that Madeline had accused him of being unfaithful.
He rapped: “When your girlfriend tell you I’ve been f*ing around, would you believe me if I told you that they’re lying and that’s just a rumour?”
But not everyone is in his firing line.
Last month he heaped praise on rapper Ice Spice and told Complex Magazine: “She’s cool innit.
“Humble, down to earth, don’t really care too much about the shiny stuff. but knows how to play the game. You can hear that in the music, and see that in the moves she makes, and I appreciate that because some people don’t really know what they’re doing, and they take it for granted or they don’t take the opportunity and run with it.
“But she’s really running with it right now.”
Hopefully they’ve sorted out their issues now.
Halsey’s riveting new look
HERE is Halsey channelling some Game Of Thrones chic – if that’s even a thing.
The Without Me singer wore this armour-like dress adorned with silver studs and rivets as she attended a bash for fashion giant Off White in Los Angeles.
Going for a dramatic look, Halsey completed her look with heavy eye make-up and a bleach-blonde pixie cut.
She wouln’t jave looked out of place alongside Brienne of Tarth or Arya Stark from the hit fantasy TV series.
The singer, who counts G-Eazy and The 1975 front man Matty Healy among former flames, has found love once more.
She is now dating Canadian actor Avan Jogia.
Hopefully they go the distance, or at least it gives her inspiration for next album.

Howard’s Rob regret
HOWARD Donald wishes he could go back in time and speak to Robbie Williams before he decided to quit Take That in 1995.
He said of regrets about his bandmate leaving: “When you look back, Robbie obviously had enough. We never got in a room and talked about health or home life.
“In hindsight, you do wish you could have spoken to him and said, ‘Listen mate, we are about to go on tour. Is everything OK?’ But it was not like that.”
Mark Owen also expressed regret and admitted he was too scared to speak up.
He said: “Rob leaving was a big time for me.
“It was a time for me with a lot of uncertainty. The feelings I had, I was not able to put them into words. I just had a white shirt and white trousers on and we had to carry on and sing Never Forget.”
The pair appear with Gary Barlow in Dermot O’Leary’s Reel Stories next Saturday at 9pm on BBC Two.
Opening up about his feelings towards Robbie, Gary said he struggled after seeing his former bandmate’s solo success.
He explained: “There was a shame thing going on for me with Robbie out there as king of the world at this time. It drove me crazy. Every time that happened, it took me about six months to get over another version of him saying something.
“In the modern day, a therapist would have undone it in about 12 months. But it took me five years to get out of it.
“It was a dim light but I think I would move forward in that way.”
Hatt’s remix in the charts
HOUSE tune Just How You Like It by K.A.D featuring Kak Hatt has got a remix by TikTok stars The Charva Boys.
IT was one of the biggest songs on TikTok, with JLS, actor Stephen Graham, footballer Phil Foden and The Voice coaches making videos to the track.
It entered the charts today.
Lewis cheers on someone he loves
LEWIS Capaldi is getting back into music, venturing out to see one of his favourite rising stars perform.
The Scottish singer has barely been seen since his performance at Glastonbury in June, after which he cancelled all forthcoming commitments and retreated from public view to work on his mental health.
But he seemed in good spirits when he was spotted cheering on Irish singer-songwriter Darren Kiely at East London boozer Sebright Arms on Wednesday.
Lewis has become a fan of Darren’s work after the release of his EP Lost earlier this month and went to check him out playing live.
I can only hope seeing someone else on stage encourages Lewis to do the same, when he’s good and ready.
Alex out in the parka
SHE may not have been out All Night Long but Alexandra Burke still had the best time at Winter Wonderland.
The singer and actress wrapped up warm in an oversized scarf and green parka coat that even Liam Gallagher would have been proud of.
Once again, the magical attraction has taken over Hyde Park in London, featuring rides, ice-skating and festive stalls.
SOME of the biggest names in pop have been confirmed for Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball.
It takes place on December 9 and 10 at London’s O2 Arena.
Alicia Keys headlines the Saturday, in a line-up featuring Becky Hill, Tom Grennan, Jax Jones, Leigh-Anne, Arrdee, Tate McRae, Nathan Dawe and Busted.
Then Take That will top the bill on Sunday following performances from S Club, Zara Larsson, Rita Ora, Joel Corry, Raye, Rudimental and Jazzy.
Tickets sold out within minutes of going on sale yesterday but there will be chances to win more on air.
Highlights from the shows will be broadcast on Capital.
Drake pushing Tay’s buttons
IT isn’t the first time Taylor Swift has found herself name-checked in a rapper’s song.
But unlike when Kanye West slammed her in his 2016 track Famous, Drake has been nothing but complimentary.
The One Dance superstar has used his new song Red Button to make light of swerving a record clash with her.
Drake pushed back last year’s release of his joint album with 21 Savage to avoid a chart battle with Taylor, who was due to drop her tenth album Midnights days earlier.
On Red Button, Drake raps: “Taylor Swift the only n**** that I ever rated.
“Only one could make me drop the album just a little later. Rest of y’all, I treat you like you never made it.”
It was a good thing he did.
Taylor went on to get her ninth UK No1 album, with Midnights dominating charts around the globe.
A few weeks later, Drake also topped the album chart with Her Loss.
