I pinched myself so many times this morning!

Just taking a moment now to digest and reflect. Thank you for all the support! I’m so grateful on so many levels ❤️

Alex Beresford’s Love Island admirer
During the show, Kate teased Alex over his new celebrity admirer – Love Island’s Amy Hart!
It comes after Amy revealed the dad-of-one is her celebrity crush during an exclusive chat with Entertainment Daily.
Kate said: “You’re already very popular Alex, not only with our viewers, who are loving having you on the show, but Amy Hart has come forward, you know Amy Hart from Love Island?
“Absolutely gorgeous girl. She has come forward to say that you are her favourite, favourite crush.”
Alex replied: “Yes apparently she followed me on Instagram a few days ago and she’s upset I didn’t follow her back.
“So maybe I will go on Instagram now… Hit me up!”
Alex went on to reveal he wasn’t going to “slide in” Amy’s DMs.
He joked: “I said I was going to follow her, I didn’t say I was going to slide in, Kate…
“I mean slide into the DMs!”
Kate laughed: “Oh, hello! It’s getting a bit exciting, I’m getting all hot and bothered, I don’t know where I am!”
What did Amy Hart say?
Earlier this week, Amy revealed she has likes the hunky weatherman.
The 28-year-old told us: “I will tell you who my number one is. The weather presenter from GMB, Alex Beresford.
“He’s just split up from his wife. I followed him on Instagram the other night.”
However, she admitted: “No, he didn’t follow me back. Rude!”
