In a previous interview, Heida opened up about the difficulties of maintaining her long-distance relationship with Sam, who lives in Los Angeles. "He lives in LA so there's a lot of back and forth," she revealed via MailOnline. "He's just started watching the first series, but he keeps watching it before bed so he always falls asleep." Earlier this year, Heida revealed she relocated to the States, telling Radio Times: "I want to sleep and eat and hike in California - just walking in the sun, realising how good it is to be a modern woman and not a poor girl whose future is always being decided by men."
