The former islander told Cheltenham Betting Offers he’s ‘nervous’ about spending the weekend with gorgeous Sophie.
And while the former Islander has already met Sophie’s sister Rochelle Humes, but the secret JLS super-fan is worried he might get “star-struck” when he’s introduced to her brother-in-law Marvin Humes…
Can’t wait to take Sophie to the races
“I’ve not really been racing much, but I’ve been to Goodwood. I would love a day out at the races one day. I could 100 per cent take Sophie to the races.
“We’ve got Goodwood down our area, but I’d love to go to Ascot, and Aintree this summer, and there’s Cheltenham. And of course, I’d love to do Aintree this year.”
Whisking Sophie off to a spa for Valentine’s Day
“We’ve got Valentine’s Day coming up and I’m taking her to a nice spa on Friday (tomorrow).
“I’ve never really done one before, so Friday is going to be a good day, and I think she’s going to spend the weekend with me, which I’m looking forward to.
“I am a bit nervous, but I’m excited more than anything to see her. We talk all the time, so it’s quite surreal coming out and finding someone who you like. I’m really happy.
“But I haven’t actually pre-booked the spa treatments yet! I’ve been so busy. I need to get onto that today! I need to sort it out. I need to get onto [a couple’s massage] before it’s too late. I’m a bit of a last-minute person.
“I don’t even know what to do at a spa. I can’t wait to relax and chill out with her though.”
Finding out that Sophie is Rochelle’s sister, meeting her and being starstruck by Marvin!
“I found out on day three in the villa, because the boys were talking about people who had been leaked before and she had been, and I didn’t even know.
“So we did have a conversation, but we didn’t really talk about it a lot. So, I found out from the boys.
“I met Rochelle and Lili, her sister, at Aftersun, and they were lovely. It was nice to meet them, they were really nice. I am always quite nervous about meeting an other half’s family, but things went really well.
“I love JLS, I was really into them when I was younger. I really hope I don’t get too star-struck meeting Marvin!
Asked if he’ll be getting free tickets to the JLS tour, he said: “I don’t know yet, we’re taking things slow, but hopefully it’ll work out.”
Meet the parents
“It’s going really well with Sophie. She really wants to meet my mates and my family, so it’s nice.
“Probably the next couple of weeks [she’ll meet my family]. She’s coming to meet my mates soon.
“I feel like my mum and dad already know her from TV already. They’ve said they love her and can see I was into her straight away.
“It’s surreal because they’ve already been watching her for a few weeks so they already kind of know her. It’s mad isn’t it?”
Really happy how it’s worked out with Sophie
“We’re chatting all the time, things are going well. We’re taking things slowly at the moment because in the villa it’s quite intense, so it’s quite nice to have a real relationship.
“We’re just seeing each other, not taking things too fast.
“It was quite hard to watch her when I’d left the villa. I was shocked she left. She’s quite a big character so I was surprised. But I’m really happy how things have worked out.”
