What has Jamie Laing said about his relationship with Sophie Habboo?

Speaking on The Moments That Made Me podcast, Jamie sweetly revealed that he "couldn't be more in love" with his other half. "I always thought I was going to be this guy who just settled, that I would be in a relationship, I would settle, I would maybe end up cheating at some point – I just thought that was life. 

"But then I found someone who I couldn't be more compatible with, couldn't love more, couldn't respect more and realised, this is actually what life is about," explained Jamie.


Speaking to HELLO!, about whether we should expect to hear wedding bells anytime soon, Jamie said: "I wish I could say it would be tomorrow." Jamie admitted that despite taking part in the reality show, Sophie, or 'Habbs' as she's known, is notoriously private. "She hates me saying things like this. She's like, 'Shut up!' and I have to say sorry all the time," he said.
