Tahj Miles hinted that Marlon and Naomi could have a romance on the show

"People were talking about him and Naomi, so that's a romance in the office that could happen. It could be someone that he used to be a criminal with back in the day, like a Bonnie and Clyde thing going on, or it could be someone who is on the completely opposite side of the world to him, like an academic person who did really well in school and they're polar opposites but they find each other.

He continued: "There's many, many ways that a love life could work for Marlon in the show, so when we get to see it, whenever that is, I hope the audience enjoy it."

Tahj also opened up about why him and Ralf often struggle keep things together when filming. "The worst thing you can do is put me and Ralf together in a scene by ourselves, we're always taking the mick out of each other," he laughs.

"We all have quite tricky lines, mouthy lines, but [me and Ralf] have this thing where if we can see that we just got the line out, we really fought for our lives to get this line out, we give each other a little look, and all it takes is one of us to look at each other in the eyes and the whole scene is gone because we just start laughing."
