Curtis Pritchard has sparked speculation he is dating Kimberly Hart-Simpson after admitting it "didn't feel right" waking up without her in bed next to him.
The former 'Love Island' star has been shooting 'Celebs Go Dating' in a mansion alongside the 'Coronation Street' actress – as well as Chloe Ferry, Karim Zeroual, Sophie Hermann, Tom Zanetti and Wayne Lineker – and he has missed seeing the soap star first thing in the morning.
He wrote: "@kimberly_h_s is the best !!! Waking up and not seeing your face in the bed next to me this morning just didn’t feel right (sic)"
Curtis – who dated Amy Hart in the 'Love Island' villa before getting together with Maura Higgins and dating on the outside, until they split – recently tested positive for coronavirus while shooting the E4 show.
But he resumed filming earlier this month after getting the Covid-19 all-clear when he tested negative four times in a row.
A spokeswoman said: "After four negative results and in agreement with the team at 'Celebs Go Dating', Curtis has gone back to filming."
Production on the show was temporarily paused after Curtis tested positive, despite having quarantined beforehand, and a pal has said he felt bad about filming being halted.
A friend said at the time: "This is a massive relief for Curtis.
"Being the sort of person he is, he felt terrible that with his test result he had halted production."
Since dating Curtis, Maura has moved on with their 'Love Island' co-star Chris Taylor.
And Curtis has admitted he felt "betrayed" by the pair.
He said: "I feel betrayed by them both – two people I was very close to.
"When I saw the pictures, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel hurt. I was upset. How long has this truly been going on for?"
