ITVs My Mum, Your Dads Roger sweetly reveals how he told Janey he loved her for first time
My Mum, Your Dad couple Roger and Janey have excitedly announced they will be hosting a travel segment for This Morning.
As they shared the exciting news, they also gave fans of the ITV dating show an updated on their relationship.
Fans will be pleased to know they're both very happy and revealed to This Morning hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary how they said 'I love you'.
Alison asked the couple: "Have we dropped the L bomb at all?"
"Yeah," Roger smiled. "I [dropped it first]. I just said 'There's an elephant in the room,' and she looked at me like, 'What?'
"And I said, 'I love you,' and it weren't the best delivery but yeah."
Janey jumped in: "It was! I thought it was going to be something terrible, there's an elephant in the room, I love you. And I said, 'I love you too!'"
Opening up about why she went on the show, Janey explained: "I definitely went on the show looking for love because I'd exhausted all other options, yes. I thought, 'If it works, wow!' and it did."
Discussing how they got together, Roger shared: "I was like Janey, I didn't know what to expect. I was just winging it basically."
He went on to explain he was a little hesitant to get back into dating after his wife's death: "I didn't expect anything that did happen. It's been the best surprise of my life.
"I look at it and think, Harry Potter is more believable than this. But Jessica, Alex and Ben put me forward and I thought, 'Yeah I'll be up for that.' It was a rollercoaster."
Roger admitted he didn't see the relationship coming while Janey said she was "very anxious" at the start of the experience.
"When we made a connection, I won't lie, I thought 'I've found him now,' can we just crack on?" she continued.
"You felt you found your person in an unusual environment, you know. It was like, 'Thank goodness.'"
Roger and Janey went on to joke "women try it on all the time" with the widower as Janey laughed: "It does my head in."
Speaking of the first time she saw Roger, Janey confessed: "Everyone knows he's fit! He's hilarious and my biggest thing, when anyone asks me what do you go for, it's humour, and kindness.
"When I saw him I thought he's really good-looking but I'm not very good at putting myself forward for that kind of thing.
"I was kind of like, I'll let everyone else have a go first, which sounds awful."
Alison asked: "How is life now? What is life like for you now Roger?"
"It's very strange, we watch things and see things and then you realise people see you differently," he replied.
"But we're still the same people. And yeah, we go to the local shop and people look at you then go, 'It's you!'"
Janey added everyone is really happy to hear they are still together but despite being miles away from each other, they make it work.
