Chatting about his dating life, Bobby chuckled awkwardly when asked if he’d consider a 14 year age gap in a relationship. He quipped: “Erm, it’s not even a thing that I’m even considering, but would I date a 34 year old? I dunno… are any of you 34?” Everyone’s favourite Eastender also disclosed that he’d be returning to the set on Monday, 19th February, excitedly revealing: “I’ve missed these lot.”
Rumours have been flying thick and fast about him and Strictlys Ellie being an item after cosy-looking photographs popped up on Instagram during the show tour. Reports at the time said that they wanted to keep things hush-hush. Yet they were seen a few times looking very comfortable in each other’s company during their road trip.
One particular shot saw them holding hands behind the scenes. Whispers even suggested that the pair had shared a kiss. After the tour wrapped up, Bobby and Ellie were seen enjoying a cuddle in a hotel lobby. The soap star was then spotted holding hands with Ellie’s mum – possibly hinting hes won her family’s approval.
