Speaking to The Sun at the KISS FM Haunted House party, Laura said: ‘I get on really well with Gary, it’s blossoming. It’s the happiest I’ve been in a long time.

She explained: ‘We started off as friends but let see what happens. There were loads of dates on the show and sometimes when your dates don’t go that well you just see who else is around.

‘Things are going really well for us, I wouldn’t change anything. We are going with the flow and seeing where things go.’

The couple were joined at the event by Married At First Sight star Amy Christophers, who put on a busty display in a plunging dress.

Laura joined Celebs Go Dating, which matches celebrities with singletons who aren’t in the public eye, following her split from on/off boyfriend of five years Dane Bowers.

Her and Gary were recently spotted getting cosy on set while filming, with the pair giggling during breaks.

A source told The Sun: ‘Gary and Laura were all over each other during breaks from filming. 

‘They kept going off on their own and it was obvious they were hooking up. They’re going to go on some proper dates when they’re back in the UK. They make a very sweet couple.’ 

Gary was previously married to actress Natasha Gray, with the pair calling time on their four year marriage back in 2018 – following reports of ‘wild partying’ from the actor. 

While Laura didn’t manage to find love during her 2018 stint on Love Island, she did get back with Another Level’s Dane Bowers, who she dated prior to the show.

The reality star and ex pop singer Dane, 42, went their separate ways after first striking up a relationship in 2017, before rekindling in 2021.

Laura packed up her belongings and moved out of the Dubai home she shared with Dane just days after announcing their separation.

When asked how she’s doing after the break-up and following her move back to the UK, she told the Mirror: ‘I’m good. Just being positive. Moving forward with life, you’ve got to. Happy to be back in the UK and just working. I feel really good.’

Laura previously said she was living out of her suitcases after splitting from Dane but she is now back in the UK and is particularly glad to be settling back in to her home nation of Scotland.

She added: ‘I’m glad to be back in the UK in general and be in Scotland, so maybe some exciting things there.’
