Speaking with Prima Magazine in June 2021, Carol revealed the romantic way her then-boyfriend takes care of her at home, explaining: "He always makes me a cup of tea before I go to work in the morning, which is very romantic - it's 2.45am and he often leaves me a little love note for when I come home from work. That, to me, is worth a million red roses."
Clearly smitten with her new man, Carol added: "He is the best thing that's ever happened to me, without a shadow of a doubt."
