After Richard Madeley's departure - he was catfishing as 27-year-old Judy - on Monday (30.9.19), two new contestants were seen bedding in last night.

Beth, 29, from Newcastle is playing as a 'girl next door' because she doesn't want girls and guys to be intimidated by her looks.

Elsewhere, Jack, 29, who lives in Edinburgh, admitted he has never had a proper relationship and is open to 'falling in love' on the show.

As they both got stuck into life inside the apartment block, fellow players already noticed his heavy-handed approach to flirting.

In a chat with Georgina, Jack described her body with flame emojis, and asked her if she would be his travel buddy.

"Bloody hell," Georgina said. "Has anyone ever told you Jack love will find you when you stop bloody looking for it."
