Celebs Go Dating Josh Ritchie and Olivia Bentley ‘secretly dating’ on show

Celebs Go Dating co-stars Josh Ritchie and Olivia Bentley are reportedly dating after meeting on the E4 reality show.

The sweethearts struck up a romance last month, and have been trying to keep things out of the spotlight while they continue to get to know one another, according to Mail Online.

A source reportedly told the publication: "Josh and Olivia have been getting on like a house on fire.

"They started seeing each other in secret at the beginning of February and their romance has really blossomed.

"Until recently they had really tried to keep their feelings for each other private for the sake of the show.

"But it was impossible for them not to be flirty and tactile in group situations with the rest of the cast, so it soon became common knowledge."

Made In Chelsea star Olivia, 24, signed up for the dating series following her split from ex-boyfriend Digby Edgley last year.

Speaking to dating coaches Anna Williamson and Paul Carrick Brunson about her love life, she insisted she wanted to date outside her posh Chelsea social circle.

She said: "Because of being in Made In Chelsea people think I would be best suited to another sort of Chelsea person but in fact that is actually my idea of hell. I love an Essex bloke or someone who is a Jack the lad."
