After greeting him on Big Brother's Bit On The Side last night, Vicky opened up about her feelings for the model on Loose Women...
If you caught Vicky Pattison and Alex Cannon on Loose Women this afternoon, we wouldn’t blame you for feeling a teeny bit awkward.
Alex – who left Big Brother on Monday night – joined Vicky, 28, and her fellow panellists on the ITV daytime show to chat about his time in the house.
But of course, conversation ended up turning to his and Vicky’s relationship. Eep.
The pair have been close since they met on reality show Judge Geordie. And if you’re a LW viewer, you’ll remember that Vicky, er, declared her undying love for Alex while he was in BB.
Just to make things even more uncomfortable for the pair, they played this for him today. Afterwards, a shy Vicky said: ‘I don’t know how you feel. Maybe I should talk to you about this. I think I care more about you than I have about anyone before.’
They both admitted that they were concerned about spoiling their friendship, with Vicky continuing: ‘If it doesn’t work out that petrifies us.’
Alex, 27, agreed: ‘To jeopardise it we would have to be 100% sure. We’re as close as anyone.’
Thought things couldn’t get any worse? Wrong. Alex was also asked about his flirtation with BB housemate Evelyn Ellis. While he insisted it was ‘made out to be more than it was’, he did reveal that they’d be meeting up for a drink.
However, he’ll also be enjoying one-on-one time with Vicky. Once his slot had come to an end, he told the panel that he and the Geordie Shore lady had plans to go out for lunch after the show.
