"If she wasn't there my world would fall apart. She's my soulmate and the person I have been looking for all my life," she said.

While appearing on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here she told fellow camper George Hamilton that the two were engaged.

"We’re engaged, we got engaged this year in Thailand," she said at the time. "The first year we met we both got tattoos on our fingers, we knew, I knew she was going to be my soulmate for the rest of my life."

"Myra makes me feel safe, she’s motherly which I love," she added.
