However, the conversation didn’t appear to go to plan as Ron told Zara that he has got ‘really close’ with Lana – and kissed her mere minutes later.

Ron said: ‘I’ve had that connection from her with her from the start. Instead of investing 75pc of my energy in one girl and then exploring…’

Zara said: ‘Do you not feel like you owed me a conversation about that?’

Ron replied: ‘It’s only after seeing you building things with Tom.’

Taking it on the chin, Zara said: ‘Hmm ok. I really rate Lana, I like her.’
