The latest series of Celebs Go Dating may have come to an end but the drama continues as Joshua Ritchie and Olivia Bentley have appeared to confirm their romance despite the Made in Chelsea star insisting they were just friends only earlier this month.

Speaking at the TRIC Awards, which took place two weeks ago, Olivia said, “No, we’re not [together]. He’s one of my really good mates and I get on really well with him. I find him hilarious, but there’s nothing physically or sexually attractive. We’re not attracted to each other like that.”

But, after it was teased that the pair “hooked up” at the end of the Celebs Go Dating finale, new pictures obtained by The Sun show the pair locking lips on what suspiciously looks like a date.

He said, “I really, really fancy Liv.

"She is super sexy. We flirt all the time and we really fancy each other but we are trying to be respectful of our dates.

"We have spent a lot of time together. We have naturally got close. We will see what happens after the show.”

They’re clearly not wasting any time then.

Meanwhile, Josh’s ex Charlotte Crosby is rumoured to have moved on with hunky videographer Liam Beaumont four months after their shock split.

It’s thought the pair met in Dubai after being introduced by mutual friend DJ Chris Wright – who Charlotte was once linked to herself.

A source told The Sun, “They’ve been dating since meeting in Dubai when Charlotte was on a group holiday with the Geordie Shore girls.

“They instantly clicked when they met and haven’t stopped talking by text ever since.

“He’s got all the qualities her last relationship didn’t but they’re taking things really slow and just enjoying it. It’s early days.”
