He continued: "With the industry we're in you have to take it slow, there's so many pressures.

"There's pressures in any relationship, but with what we're doing it's like a catalyst"

He added that dating in the public eye can feel like you're "under a magnifying glass", which makes things more complicated, but he went on to say: "We're enjoying each other's company."

Megan Barton Hanson, who was on the 2018 edition of the reality dating show Love Island, confirmed the relationship further on Instagram.
