Despite going on a “break” only a number of weeks ago, it seems Nicola Hughes and Alex Mytton are happier than ever.
The pair briefly called time on their relationship during the season finale of Made In Chelsea which aired in December, but that’s a thing of the past and the two have moved on.
Nicola Hughes has opened up about her relationship with the reality tv star, and admitted that her friends weren’t impressed when she first started seeing him.
The Irish model wasn’t aware of his reputation of a cheater, but wanted to make her own mind up, regardless of what was previously shown on tv.
Her friends suggested watching the show, but speaking to the Sunday Independent’s Life Magazine, Nicola said that wasn’t an option.
“I was like, ‘No, I don’t want to. I want to get to know him first,’” she said.
“I gave him a chance and got to know him. Fell for him. Then, eventually, as time went on, I started watching the show and having loads of questions.
“He was just like, ‘I was new to the show. I didn’t really know what I was doing. It was a weird environment. Things happen.’”
Despite his past, Nicola revealed that her parents can’t get enough of him.
“My parents love Alex,” she said. “Alex is the only guy that my dad has ever warmed to.
“Alex is an absolute gent. He hasn’t, in the past, come across very well in the show. But he is so charming.”
