MARRIED At Fight Sight's Shona Manderson has revealed she has 'secretly' been dating her co-star Matt Pilmoor 'for months'.
The duo tied the knot with partners Brad Skelly and Adrienne Naylor on the E4 show but both romances came to an end.
Now, beaming with joy, Shona and Matt spoke exclusively to OK! to reveal their new relationship.
Shona said: "We have a really healthy, happy, safe, fun, relationship – I really appreciate Matt so much, it's what I deserve, we deserve each other.
"I'm proud to be his girlfriend and it just works."
Explaining how they managed to keep their relationship a secret, Shona explained: "Matt would be driving and I would be in the back, we would be walking around Nottingham and I'd be all the way over there, we were like secret agents on a mission".

"We had to do it, we had to be so careful," Matt explained as he was still on the show.
When asked if they wished they were originally matched on the show, Matt said: "We had to do what we had to do, my experience was good but we were meant to go on those journeys to find each other.
"Being together from the start would have been incredible but I think it happened this way around for a purpose."
Despite appearing on MAFS UK at different stages, their romance began when they met at the show's reunion which was filmed in June.
