Others were also left comparing the couple to Leon and the late June. "Straight up got June and Leon vibes!" one said, while another commented: "The new couple from London are just cockney versions of Leon & June."

Ronnie and Annie join the much-loved show after several fan favourite families made the decision to bow out following the loss of their loved ones who co-starred with them on the show.

In 2021, Pete McGarry, Mary Cook and Andy Michael passed away, and it was confirmed back in September that their respective friends and family - Linda McGarry, Marina Wingrove, and Louis, Alex and Carolyn Michael - won't be returning to the show. However, show bosses have said the door is open should they wish to return in the future.

Speaking to The Daily Star at the time, executive producer Victoria Ray said: "We have had people from the show pass away recently. We lost Mary and Andy, and a little while ago we lost Pete. Their loved ones won't be taking part in the show for the moment. Understandably, they want their privacy."
