‘Perhaps absence is making the heart grow fonder. I have to be honest with you. I’d say I’m leaning towards Leanne.
A steaming Jess replies: ‘I am shocked, I would have been happy to know us but anything. See you before we leave.

Mike added: “The way I feel for you, I can’t ignore it, I can’t see my head going anywhere, I won’t sleep with her when I feel the way I feel
