Duncan James and boyfriend Rodrigo Reis made their TV debut on Loose Women yesterday.

The guys were invited on air to share their love story with anchor Ruth Langsford ahead of Valentine's Day.

Appearing via video link, the pair - currently apart because of lockdown - shared that they met in a bar in Belgium two years ago. 

"I saw him across the bar - he's very much my type. I was like 'Oh, he's hot!'"

“We met a couple of years ago in Belgium,” said 42-year-old Duncan. “I was doing a gig with the boys [his Blue bandmates].

“I met Rodrigo at the afterparty. I saw him across the bar – he’s very much my type. I was like: ‘oh, he’s hot!’”

Explaining he had no idea who Duncan was, Rodrigo said: “In Brazil, where I’m from, they [Blue] are not so famous.

"But I knew this guy had to be mine.”

Duncan and Blue stars Simon Webbe, Lee Ryan and Antony Costa are known for hits like All Rise, One Love and Sorry Seems To Be the Hardest Word.
