The 36-year-old actor starred as basketball player Troy Bolton alongside Vanessa Hudgens as Gabriella Montez in the hit Disney Channel Orginal Movie that followed the two students as they developed a passion for music whilst falling in love and is thrilled that fans have compared the story to the real-life romance of pop singer Taylor and footballer Travis.

He told E! News: "Wow, I didn't think about that. That's really cool. Shout out to all the 'High School Musical' fans. I love the whole Travis, Taylor thing. Man, I'm so happy for them. They're two of the best people in the world. How can you not be stoked?"

The 'Cruel Summer' hitmaker was first linked to the sportsman in September 2023 when she was seen attending one of his matches for the Kansas City Chiefs but recently admitted they were already a couple by the time the world found out about their romance.

She told Time magazine: "This all started when Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell.

"We started hanging out right after that. So we actually had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I’m grateful for, because we got to get to know each other.

"By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple. I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game? We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date."

Meanwhile, Travis insisted that he was "not running away" from any of the worldwide fame or attention that becoming romantically involved with such a global star had brought him.

He told WSJ: "I'm not running away from any of it. The scrutiny she gets, how much she has a magnifying glass on her, every single day, paparazzi outside her house, outside every restaurant she goes to, after every flight she gets off, and she's just living, enjoying life. When she acts like that I better not be the one acting all strange."
