Taylor Swift pictured kissing actor Tom Hiddleston

Calvin Harris has deleted all his Instagram photos of ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift after she was pictured kissing British actor Tom Hiddleston.

The photographs of Swift and Hiddleston in The Sun emerged two weeks after the 26-year-old Shake It Off singer’s split with Harris, her boyfriend of 15 months.

The Scottish DJ, 32, unfollowed Swift on Twitter and deleted photographs of them together, including snaps of them celebrating their first anniversary with a tropical getaway and of him getting to know her cats.

He also deleted a Tweet from June 2, which read: “The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect.”

Swift has similarly purged her social media of any mention of Harris, deleting photographs of them together in a pool and building a snowman with her brother Austin.

The pictures of Swift and Hiddleston were apparently taken in the US state of Rhode Island.

The Press Association contacted a representative for London-born Hiddleston, but the spokesman declined to comment.

Hiddleston, 35, who is rumoured to be in the running for the title role in the next James Bond movie, enjoyed time with Swift at The Met Ball in New York last month.

The couple were seated next to each other at dinner and were spotted dancing together.

In the wake of the photos emerging, Harris has put his focus on Rihanna, working on a video project with the singer and sharing behind-the-scenes snaps on Twitter.

Harris’s recent collaboration with Rihanna, This Is What You Came For, was a top five hit in the UK.

Swift, who has become one of the world’s biggest pop stars with hits including Bad Blood and Blank Space, has previously been romantically linked with One Direction singer Harry Styles, Twilight star Taylor Lautner, and singer Joe Jonas.
