Chris Hughes has opened up about his relationship with Jesy Nelson, admitting it was ‘love at first sight’.
Speaking on the red carpet at the Pride of Britain Awards, the reality TV star said Jesy has brought him more happiness than ever, telling MailOnline: “I’ve always been one for love and I’m very loved up. It’s the happiest I’ve ever been.
“I’m loving it, I love life.”
Speaking about their first date where they piled on the PDA, Chris revealed: “I didn’t really know much about her, I just thought she was so beautiful.
“I need 10 mins with you to try and describe how great that date was – the kebab shop date – we went for cocktails before and that’s where the spark started. It was love at first sight!”

You are genuinely my best friend and i adore every single part of you I love you @chrishughesofficial and if you could come back now that would be much appreciated 🙇🏻♀️ ❤️
“I was about three minutes late for the date, so she was in the queue and I came up the stairs and she was there in my face. I thought ‘woah, oh jeez’ and I started getting a bit nervous.”
The former islander, who previously dated TOWIE’s Olivia Attwood, hasn’t been shy about his feelings for the 26-year-old X Factor winner in the past as he revealed he wanted to have children with his girlfriend despite thinking he "might be infertile".
Chris, who advertised his upcoming BBC Three documentary, Me, My Brother, and Our Balls, admitted he is ready to settle down with Jesy in the near future after telling Gaz Beadle on MTV’s Geordie OGs he thinks the pair will be married soon after he proposes.
When asked about children, he said: “I reckon in about a year and a half.”
Chris been supporting his girlfriend recently following the release of her Odd One Out documentary, where she opened up about the effect online trolls have had on her mental health.
He shared a snap in the run-up to the show, saying: “My favourite person with the best heart. Ever so proud. What a woman.”
