While speaking on Access All Areas on FUBAR Radio, Beth detailed how their ‘whole relationship has been in her parents’ house’ after the hunk moved in at the start of lockdown in 2020.
Speaking to TOWIE star Bobby Norris and journalist Stephen Leng, Beth said: ‘You know, I got in a relationship at the beginning of lockdown.
‘And we’ve had our whole relationship in my parents’ house cause we were going to move out and that has just been a massive strain.

‘Luckily, we’re going to be moving out now, but I just think like, we’ve not had the opportunity to go on dates and go on holiday and like enjoy life and work’s being affected and it’s just been really difficult.
‘So now that everything’s opening up, I just feel like life’s starting again.’
Host Stephen then quizzed Beth on whether she thinks starting to date just before the pandemic has affected their relationship, saying it was an ‘odd time’ to date.
Beth replied: ‘It is! We met in February. We had two dates before lockdown and then we had to just FaceTime.

‘And then, when we could, we basically spent time together and then he basically just moved in. So we kind of went from just dating to like moving in together.
‘And, you know, I think it does kind of show that we can stand the test of time, because I think a lot of my friends have struggled in their relationships and a lot of kind of new relationships have broken down.’
Singing her beau’s praises, Beth continued: ‘And don’t get me wrong, I don’t know how Connagh’s dealt with me because my God, I have been a nightmare!
‘And he’s still here! He wants to live with us! He’s a good’un. He’s a keeper.’
The couple went Instagram official with their relationship last July.

Welsh model Connagh was unlucky in love during his time in the villa, after he failed to click with both Rochelle Humes’ sister Sophie Piper and Rebecca Gormley.
Beth found romance with fellow contestant Jack Quirk on the Circle before going their separate ways, however Connagh seems to have truly stolen her heart.
The couple had kept their relationship under wraps until posting on Instagram, with Beth recently teasing that her secret boyfriend made her feel like a ‘big kid’.
Revealing their relationship in July, Connagh said: ‘So the girl I would like to couple up with is…’
Beth also announced they were an item an hour later on her Instagram account with the same two pictures. She said: ‘You’re the best thing I never knew I needed.’
She said later: ‘Thankyou so much for all the love on my latest post. I know quite a few of you were guessing and asking me questions about who my boyfriend is and now you know, so yeah, have an amazing eve.’
