‘I have never bought a boyfriend on TOWIE – it’s the first time. Series one and a two I had an ex-boyfriend on there but when we split up, I was 19.
‘Moving forward, when you know, you know. Bringing Bill on the show is amazing and it feels so right because obviously he lives with me now, my children idolise him, he’s part of the family and my mum and dad love him – we’re like a family.
‘TOWIE is all about real life and I put my life on the show and obviously Bill is involved in my life so why would he not be on there and he’s been absolutely amazing.
‘I’ve never been engaged and I’m putting the pressure on him now. We’re going in the right direction.’
