Together, they placed fourth during the live final, hosted by Laura Whitmore in South Africa.

Gale previously told Metro.co.uk that lockdown was making them “less close”.

She said: “Probably this lockdown thing does make us, probably less close.

“Just because like, it’s not the same is it? When you can’t actually see someone.

“But I guess you’ve just got to make do with the situation.”

Series winners Paige Turley and Finley Tapp are still together, while runners-up Siannise Fudge and Luke Trotman recently moved into a shared home.
