“He’s quite boring. I feel like sometimes when he holds my hand I feel like it’s my dad holding my hand, you know? Or like, my best mate.”

Since leaving the show she’s vowed to return to her medical studies.

During a recent interview with Christine Lampard on Lorraine, she outlined her near future plans.

Priya explained: “I’ll be back to med school in a couple of weeks and I want to use my influence to support the NHS.

“I’ve already started working on a campaign for the vaccine for 16 and 17 year olds. So I want to go down that route and continue with my studies, absolutely.”

During his own appearance on Lorraine, he claimed: “Yeah, I know, I saw Priya go in and “Oh”, you know, having just seen bits and bobs of her over the last couple of episodes, she looks like a great girl and I would have loved to have got to know her.”
