They went on a date a decade ago, but it was only recently that sparks flew between the pair.

Singapore-based actor-host George Young and Taiwanese-American host Janet Hsieh have officially taken their relationship to a new level. They are now a couple.

Speaking to The Straits Times over the phone on Friday, Young said: "We met each other in 2004 when I was shooting a mobile phone commercial in Taiwan. Janet was a model at the same agency that represented me for that ad."

"The agent was trying to set up Janet with a friend of mine. It didn't quite work out between Janet and my friend, but both of us really hit it off. What came out of the date was a friendship."
