Calum Best may have been accused of getting cosy with Cami Li in the Celebrity Big Brother 2015 house, but it seems he’s only got eyes for his stunning girlfriend Ianthe Rose Cochrane-Stack outside of it.
N’awww. Isn’t he a cutie?
Opening up about all things girlfriend-related, Calum has revealed that he’s ‘never felt this strongly’ about anyone else and that he’s ‘crazy’ about Ianthe.
Meanwhile, we’re still cuddling our cat. Hashtag forever alone.
The 34-year-old is such a smitten kitten with his 23-year-old model girlfriend that he’s taken her home to introduce her to his mother, which he apparently has never done before.
He told HELLO! magazine: “I had to keep leaving the room. It was massive to me. I’ve been a pretty closed book in relationships. I’ve kept a lot private, not wanting to let people get too close. But they got on so great.
“My mum can see how crazy I am about Ianthe, and she’s thrilled that she’s come into my life at a really good time because everything is positive and I’m in a really good place.
“I have honestly never felt this strongly about anyone before or wanted to evolve a relationship as much as I do this one. And that feels really great.”
This is all so lovely and we’re definitely not jealous of this at all. Nope.
Calum, who met Ianthe when he saw her doing a music video for Olly Murs’ ‘Wrapped Up’, also revealed that his girlfriend was constantly on his mind when he was in the CBB house/The Perez Show.
He said: “Ianthe was on my mind every single day. I would picture me scooping her up in my arms and her sat on the sofa at my flat, smiling that beautiful smile of hers.
“What is it they say? Distance makes the heart grow fonder? And it’s true, because I have never been so desperate to see someone as I was by the end of that four weeks.”
If the two of them could be a little cuter, that would be great thanks.
Ianthe herself also spoke about Calum, admitting that she’s not bothered about his ‘playboy’ reputation because she truly trusts him.
She revealed: “The way I look at it everyone, Calum included, is entitled to a past, and whilst I will judge him, I will do it from what I know of him, not on a reputation.
“And what I know of him so far is that he is the sweetest, kindest, most considerate man I have ever been involved with.
“He is, as people are now realising, a real gentleman and I find that really refreshing.”
What a lovely couple, eh?
(Sidenote: We’re STILL SINGLE HERE, GUYS AND GALS).
