Celebs Go Dating’s Joshua Ritchie and Olivia Bentley are secretly dating after meeting on the show – The Sun

CELEBS Go Dating’s Joshua Ritchie and Olivia Bentley are in a secret relationship after meeting on the show.

According to reports the 25-year-old Ex On The Beach star and Made In Chelsea’s Olivia, 24 are serious – just a few months after his split from Charlotte Crosby.

A source told the MailOnline:”Josh and Olivia have been getting on like a house on fire.

“They started seeing each other in secret at the beginning of February and their romance has really blossomed.

“Until recently they had really tried to keep their feelings for each other private for the sake of the show.

“But it was impossible for them not to be flirty and tactile in group situations with the rest of the cast, so it soon became common knowledge.”

The news comes after Josh’s first episode on the series aired last  night and he opened up about his doomed relationship with Charlotte, which ended suddenly last year.

He admitted: “I care for her, I still do have a lot of love for her and I respect her.

“The thing is, she wants to have a family, she wants children, which I understand. She wants to get married.”

Josh signed up for the show just two weeks after he split from Charlotte – which left her devastated.

She raged at the time: "So, a bit of a revelation today. Shocked to say the least. But when you're sitting in Dubai and you find out that your ex-boyfriend, who you didn't think was like this at all, is going on Celebs Go Dating.

"I'm not going to f**king lie, right, but at one point we were on the verge of getting back. And I said, 'I've been asked to do Celebs Go Dating but obviously I said no, I would never do that’. We've only just finished a two-year relationship, we live together and it's just wrong.”

Last night the Celebs Go Dating cast headed out for dinner and Olivia was seen looking close to James Lock – while Josh followed just behind.

The posh reality TV , who signed up to the show after splitting from Digby Edgley, admitted she was looking for a rough.

She said: “Because of being in Made In Chelsea people think I would be best suited to another sort of Chelsea person but in fact that is actually my idea of hell. I love an Essex bloke or someone who is a Jack the lad.”
