Former Love Island star Jack Fincham, 28, and Lauren Goodger, 32, are thought to have embarked on a 'romance' after they both signed up to the 2019 series of Celebs Go Dating.
As Dani Dyer's ex welcomed his first child on Friday here is a look inside his and Lauren's 'relationship' including her hints she was keen on the lad, their flirty moments captured on camera and that boozy night after the Celebs Go Dating wrap party.
In July last year, ahead of the looking for love series airing Lauren dropped a major hint that she and former pen salesman Jack were sparking up a romance.
The Essex Native told New magazine: "I am dating," adding: "It's such an exciting time."
"Plus I haven't done TV for two years, so this feels like a real comeback for me," she cooed.
There had been rumours that it was Blue singer Lee Ryan Lauren had hooked up with during filming, but she insisted that wasn't the case and it was another man on the show she was dating.
"I’ve known Lee for a long time. He's a lovely guy but there's absolutely nothing romantic in it.
"Everyone got that one wrong, if they knew the truth about who I really liked, they'd be shocked," she teased.
Lauren's only other male co-stars were Geordie Shore's Nathan Henry – who is openly gay – and Love Island 2018 winner Jack Fincham- which meant speculation was rife that Jack was who she was dishing on.
When the series came on screen viewers witnessed Lauren and Jack's sizzling chemistry when they crossed paths at the dating agency's waiting room.
One episode saw Lauren make a crude confession about her "lady garden" which left Jack howling.
The conversation turned to gardening, with receptionist Tom asking Lauren if she was "green fingered".
Confused Lauren admitted she didn't know what he meant – then when she realised revealed that she doesn't do much in the garden.
Sensing some fun was there to be had, Jack cheekily asked: "Do you not tend your lady garden then?"
Clearly not realising he was asking about something very personal, Lauren replied: "I just have it quite bare to be honest."
Jack started grinning and exchanged a knowing look with stunned Tom.
Waving her arms, Lauren continued: "But now it's just nothing there."
Shocked Tom was left in disbelief and put his hands on his face, while Lauren asked: "What about you? Are you good in the garden?"
Jack the joker claimed he only needs to trim at weekends, prompting Lauren to ad: "Is that when people see your garden?"
The Love Island winner admitted: "That's when they see it most."
The Essex pair continued fuel the speculation that they were getting close when they were spotted stumbling out of the Celebs Go Dating wrap party at London’s Opium cocktail bar.
The day after they then were mysteriously absent from an appearance on This Morning and their co-star Lady C claimed they were having 'rumpy pumpy.'
Presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford were understandably fuming as they were supposed to be interviewing the pair alongside Lady Colin Campbell.
Eamonn explained: "Lady C of our three guests booked is the only one who turns up today. Some party that must have been."
The smiling I'm A Celebrity favourite said: "It was. I don’t think we need to guess too hard as to where they are and what they are doing. But the only question mark is with whom?"
Lady C did not keep any secrets and told the presenters that she believes Jack and Lauren were getting up to "rumpy pumpy".
She last the saw Jack and Lauren when she was leaving the wrap party "well after midnight".
Lady C said: "Jack said 'see you tomorrow' and I said 'sure'. Lauren seemed a little less…I did point out we would see each other tomorrow. It was supposed to be 'yes' but I think temptation.
She cheekily added: "Two words – rumpy pumpy."
"Also, we would like to know who it was and with whom."
Lauren eventually dismissed any rumours of the pair dating saying they were both "flirty" people but nothing had happened between them.
Jack revealed he had become a dad by sharing a snap of himself cradling a baby on Saturday morning.
The star confirmed he's dad to a daughter named Blossom, who was born on January 24.
However, he's keeping the identity of her mother a secret.
He says the pair are not a couple, but they are going to be co-parenting their little girl together.
In a post on Instagram, he wrote: "I’m normally a very open book and share most of my life on my social media.
"This blessing I chose not to. I’m just a normal geeza, who went on a tv show, which throws you straight into the public eye…
"Which I will forever be grateful for. However I knew for myself I needed personal time and to keep this part of my life private to prepare for this new responsibility and part of me that will change my life forever.
"This is undoubtedly the best thing that has ever happened to me and it’s true what they say, the instant feeling of love and connection you have with your child is a feeling like no other.
"I want to thank my family and friends for your continued support, also to my little girls mother, who has been totally AMAZING throughout.
"Although we are not together we are great friends as we have been for many years and our priority is co-parenting our beautiful baby girl. Both mum and baby are doing great.
"I am now a proud dad to a healthy baby girl Blossom Fincham born 8lb 2oz on 24th January 2020 ."
The baby news comes less than a year after Jack split from his Love Island girlfriend Dani Dyer.
