Speaking to TOWIE star Bobby Norris and journalist Stephen Leng, Beth said: ‘You know, I got in a relationship at the beginning of lockdown. 

‘And we’ve had our whole relationship in my parents’ house cause we were going to move out and that has just been a massive strain. 

‘Luckily, we’re going to be moving out now, but I just think like, we’ve not had the opportunity to go on dates and go on holiday and like enjoy life and work’s being affected and it’s just been really difficult. 

‘So now that everything’s opening up, I just feel like life’s starting again.’

Host Stephen then quizzed Beth on whether she thinks starting to date just before the pandemic has affected their relationship, saying it was an ‘odd time’ to date.

Beth replied: ‘It is! We met in February. We had two dates before lockdown and then we had to just FaceTime. 

‘And then, when we could, we basically spent time together and then he basically just moved in. So we kind of went from just dating to like moving in together. 

‘And, you know, I think it does kind of show that we can stand the test of time, because I think a lot of my friends have struggled in their relationships and a lot of kind of new relationships have broken down.’
