Opening up about their relationship in a recent interview, Scarlette revealed that she's found jetting off to far-flung locations for the Channel 4 show trickier now that Lyndrik is in her life.

She told The Express: "We've been together since [the first] lockdown and we've known each other for years and but have now got together. But it's a bit tricky going away because I'm leaving him at home and he's doing his thing and I'm away. My hours can be crazy sometimes so I guess that's what's hard."
