Lewis Burton has shared rare snaps of him and Lottie Tomlinson together in a sweet tribute to her.

Former tennis pro Lewis took to his Instagram to share the photos with his 194,000 followers.

One showed Lewis and Lottie standing somewhere sunny, the sea at their backs.

While handsome Lewis cut a trim, classy but laid back figure in a T-shirt and suit jacket combo, Lottie opted for a stylish two-piece, baggy summer ensemble.

She let her hair tumble over her shoulders, framing her face and natural beauty.

"You're one of a kind, Happy New Year," he captioned it.

"I love you," Lottie commented below.

And fans left there well wishes for the year ahead, one offering: "Happy new year to you both."

They cut stylish figures

"We love you both very much. Happy new year," another commented.

A third chimed in: "Happy new year the pair of ya! Have a blinder."

Lewis and Lottie - who's the sister of One Direction star Louis Tomlinson - were first linked over the summer as they holidayed in Ibiza.

28-year-old Lewis was left devastated earlier this year when his girlfriend at the time, Caroline Flack, tragically took her own life.

He penned a heartfelt tribute to her, and again a month on from her death.

Lottie and her brother Louis have also faced heartbreak in recent years after the death of their mum and sister.

Mum Johannah died in 2016 after a leukaemia battle, while Félicité died in March 2019 at just 18-years-old.

Louis has since gone on to pen songs about losing his mum and sister.
