However, love has not been plain sailing after the pair met on a dating app.

Bobby served time in prison after pleading guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with intent on step-mother Jane and killing sister Lucy.

After meeting Dana online, Bobby lied about his identity and background before deciding to come clean earlier this month.

But Dana was able to forgive Bobby and the pair got back together on the show last week.
