We're not sure why but it's Lauren that's been holding back and it's all to do with the age gap…

Tom said: "We're not boyfriend and girlfriend we're just seeing each other.

"Lauren and I are taking things slow, but she's worried about the whole age situation, she's 30 next month and I've just turned 22.

"She thinks we want different things, but it doesn't scare me she's more worried about it."

But by the look of things (this snaps show the pair getting rather comfy) in tonight's show they'll work through their concerns.

On the subject of Laurens, we also grilled Tom Pearce on how things were with Lauren Goodger after their fall out in the season finale.

Tom assured us things were fine: "I spoke to Lauren in Marbella and there's no hard feelings there.

"I said I could have pulled her which upset her a little bit when we were in Faces. We're all fine now though."

Tom didn't seem too fussed as he retold his first advances to Ms Goodger: "Everyone told me Lauren Pope was too old for me and I that I should go for Lauren Goodger.

"People told me she's a nice girl but I didn't really know her. Anyway, she said no, but then she was messaging me a bit."

Not in the next series as Tom tells us: "In the next series I'll carry on laughing with the boys, and you'll see what happens with me and Lauren.

We can't wait!
