Chatting to HELLO! in a Q&A, Tahj explained: "This is my first year on a show of this magnitude - and also being away from home for such a long period of time - Tobi looked after me. He was so helpful, I don't drive either and getting around the island without a car is almost impossible. So him living not far from me, he looked after me!"

Ralf Little chimed in, joking: "Tahj wasn't allowed out without permission! I'd ask if he wanted a beer, he'd say, 'I'd better ask Tobi.'" Tobi agreed, adding: "I was his Uber, I was his personal chef - he can't cook by the way - he only cooks salmon and I was like, 'No, that's too much salmon.'"

Did you enjoy season ten?

He explained: "Seven years on the show is a very long time, and it's etched into my life, the way my life has been, but I feel that the show has done a good job in giving JP a good arc and it's naturally gotten to the point where him leaving isn't too wild... we've had Tahj come in and he's done a great job and now he's taking it on and doing what he does - and the show will crack on!"

The actor also hinted that he could return to the series one day, adding: "Who knows what happens in the future but for now, that was the last hurrah."
