While the likes of Giovanna Fletcher and Maura Higgins follow Amy Dowden and Rose Ayling-Ellis – who are paired up with McFly’s Tom Fletcher and Giovanni Pernice respectively – graphic designer Paul, has yet to follow Johannes, according to The Sun.

It is claimed that while watching from the sidelines during the first show as John and Johannes made history as the show’s first male same-sex couple, Paul ‘appeared on camera looking furious’.

The Sun noted: ‘Paul leads a very private life out of the spotlight. He follows 2,014 accounts on Instagram but Johannes isn’t one of them.’
