Were William Compton and Thomas Tallis, and George Boleyn and Mark Smeaton lovers?

Thank you so much to Omar from Leeds for the excellent questions regarding Showtime’s The Tudors series for my Fan Q&A series on YouTube.
Omar wanted to know if William Compton and Thomas Tallis, and George Boleyn and Mark Smeaton really had sexual relationships.
I consider whether these storylines were just fictional devices and look at whether there were any links between these men, and, if so, what the evidence is for them having relationships.
