Laura enjoyed flings with Wes Nelson and Jack Fowler on the show and made it to the final with her ex-boyfriend Paul Knops.

“That was his punishment, watching me get with other men,” she said.

He said, “But, in general I kinda of was just... We'd just split up and that's why she went on the show, pretty much.

“Which was my fault, so you kind of got to take it on the chin and mostly I just wanted her to do well and be happy and when she was upset and those moments where it wasn't really nice to watch."

The pair are now giving things one last go go and they’re not hanging around as they look to “move on” from their turbulent history.

"We’re talking about marriage and babies and we’d like to do that soon,” said Dane. "This is it. This is proper. This is The One. We’re practising with the baby bit now.”
