Florence Leontine Mary Welch is 26 years old and her birthday is the 28th of August
HEIGHT: She is around 5’9” tall in bare feet
RELATIONSHIP: Florence does not currently have a boyfriend, as far as we are aware, despite being involved with James Nesbitt (not the actor) for some time this year, this seems to have broken off.
RELIGIOUS VIEWS: Florence says at around 2.00 in this interview that she’s not religious, but she is obviously fascinated with the iconography of religion, particularly Christianity. She also said she used to be obsessed with witchcraft and practiced Wicca as a teen. She tried to ‘make the boy in the other class fall in love with me’ by casting spells!
SOLO ARTIST? BAND? I’M CONFUSED!!! Ah, that old chestnut! It’s a hard one! this is Holly’s opinion on it (spoiler: it is NOT conclusive!)
PREVIOUS BANDS: Florence was in two bands previous to Florence + The Machine, those being Toxic Cockroaches and Ashok
SEXUALITY: Florence was with Stuart Hammond for 5(ish?) years and is now with James Nesbitt BUT she has been photographed kissing women and once said in an interview that she’s not a lesbian unless she’s in Paris! “Well you know girls kissing girls, it’s alright! It’s a lot softer and the French are, well you know, but I’m straight in England!” from this interview
