Double-dating islandistas

Britain's islandista pop stars, Leona Lewis and Keisha Buchanan of girl group the Sugababes teamed up for a too-cute double date on Tuesday night with their respective boyfriends Lou Al-Chama and Dean Thomas.

The group was snapped leaving a London nightclub and piling into a car with Dean taking the wheel.

What makes the whole thing  extra cute is that Leona is actually the one who hooked up Keisha with Dean. This after a loonnnng stretch of well-profiled singledom and exasperation at men's lame efforts to end said singledom for British-Jamaican Keisha.

She told the UK's Daily Mirror:

"I met him through Leona. Her boyfriend Lou Al-Chama and him auditioned to be in a band together a while ago and they've been friends ever since. We even joined them on holiday over Christmas, it was lovely."

The couple, who have been together for a year and a half now, seem  headed down the aisle as Keisha has confided that he is "absolutely the one" and that her mother has already lined up the Sugababes' makeup artist for the wedding!

By the way islandistas, you may have noticed that we have started to carry more suss and news on British islandistas as well - being so close to the States, we're not always clued in to what is going on that side of the Atlantic, but there are islandistas over there doing fabulously - Leona, Alexandra, Keisha and Jamelia, just to name a few. So let us know what you think of our new focus - love it? Hate it?
