Speaking on the JD's In The Duffle Bag podcast, the 34-year-old revealed:

"When we first met he didn’t even hit on me, he was too nervous to hit on me! I think he was intimidated by me. I remember Iain was too scared to ask me out so in the end I had to ask him out."

'He used to send me random messages, DM me and ask me about my dog."

"It took nine months but we got there! I was like "let’s just go for a drink". I think I had to make the moves on him."
