“I haven't had a girlfriend for four years at Christmas, it's been a bit lonely. So this year is going to be great.

"I'll be enjoying that, and spending time with my family, watching The Voice when it comes out.”

Reflecting on his new romance, Olly said “this is new for me”, explaining that he had a girlfriend four years ago, but this feels “completely different” and “fresh and new”.

He added: “They always say when you're always looking for something and then it comes along, this is what it's supposed to feel like."

Amelia is somewhat of a mystery, not being in the public eye herself, however, we know the 27-year-old works in finance, and in 2018 became Bikini Pro World Champion & International Model World Champion.
