Ron then said, “So basically I’m competing with someone who’s just come runner-up on a massive show and who’s an actor and I work in finance, yeah, erm, sick. This is great.”
“That was a shock, I don’t really know what to think about it…,” Ron added.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Lana confirmed she and Owen dated throughout the pandemic.
