At the time strict rules meant the pair wouldn’t have been able to be together unless they were living together.
Fans were overjoyed by their relationship.
Speaking about the romance on Loose Women Natalie explained: “Our first date was in mid-January, and then we were just having a couple of dates in February and then obviously March lockdown happened.
“And we were together at the time that Boris Johnson announced it.
“So we’re like: oh. So he’s been kind of staying with me, and then they were saying, yes, it could be three weeks. Yes, it might be six weeks. I was like, ‘Oh, OK!'”
He said of the 46-year-old: “We are just shy of a year and it’s still early days but we are having a lovely time.
