Liv quipped to “All it took was a drunken night in Raffles and a lap dance and we were back together!”.

Tristan reacted: "That’s not what happened!" He went on: "I was actually on a date - or a liaison, let’s call it – at that club one night, and then Liv walked in with her friends. I hadn’t seen her in person for around five months and I just thought to myself, 'Oh f***, I’m still in love with her.'"

The pair were good friends before realising their relationship was far from platonic. Olivia said: "I often forget that we were friends before. "I feel like we’ve been in love the whole time." And the fact they were pals was "terrifying" for Tristan.

He explained: "I’d never dated anybody that I’d previously been friends with - that’s what I found so terrifying at the time - so I thought I knew everything about Liv already, but I suddenly started learning something new about her that I loved every day. She had this big tough exterior which she portrays on-screen, but this wall suddenly started to come down and I realised how unbelievably caring she really is."

The pair went their separate ways last year after living together amid the COVID-19 pandemic, a forced situation that left them feeling trapped.

Tristan said: "Being almost 'forced' to live together during the pandemic - when we were also filming the show together as well – meant we couldn’t learn to love each other naturally. "Any normal lovers’ tiff was heightened in that environment."

Olivia expanded: "We both struggled massively with not being able to escape one another."There was no breathing room." On living together again, she said: "When we decided to get back together this time, we knew we’d be in it for the long run. "So, we thought, why delay? It just felt like the right time for us. We’re living together on our own terms now, so it’s been a lot more exciting."

The loved-up pair are stronger than ever and see a long future together. Olivia insisted: "It would take a serious amount of arguing to break us up now - even if there’s always an abundance of laundry around our flat, or I leave my hair clips everywhere! I can’t imagine not waking up with him every morning - plus he’s a great chef and cooks all my meals."

Tristan quipped: "We just work now. She’s the breadwinner and I’m a pro chef! We’ve now had this time apart to grow up, so now we’ve hit the reset, I can’t see anything getting in our way."
