Freddie was very smitten with Tamzin, which he expressed to The Telegraph as:

“I can honestly say I have never been in love before, but I know this is it.She is perfect. I know it is such a cliché — 'we played lovers and then a romance blossomed,’ and all that, I get it — but, really, I couldn’t be happier. I love her so much.”
