On Wednesday viewers of The Apprentice saw contestant Philip Green fired from the show amid suggestions he and fellow hopeful Kate Walsh had embarked on a romance. And it seems the reports are true.
The couple – who met through the reality competition - were spotted strolling hand in hand through London on Friday.
"We're very close and get on well. There might be a romantic element in it," 29-year-old Philip told the Mirror. "I'm a hopeless romantic, and once we got involved that was it."
"Maybe we should have waited until the show was done and dusted, but life's too short," he added.
In this week's episode Sir Alan Sugar booted out estate agent Philip after fellow competitor Lorraine spilled the beans on his relationship with 27-year-old Kate, a licensing development manager.
Although his own chances are dashed, Philip has high hopes for his girl. "Kate's ten times the candidate I was, "he admits. "She's very driven and won't let a relationship get in the way of what she wants"
