Curtis Pritchard and Maura Higgins have talked about "the future".
The 'Love Island' stars are still not "official" and whilst Curtis admits they are taking their romance "nice and chilled out" at the moment and not "putting any pressure" on each other, they have discussed taking the next steps in their relationship.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, the 23-year-old hunk said when asked if they "talk about the future": "Yeah, absolutely.
"We are just taking everything as it comes because right now the world is so hectic with our lifestyles.
"We are just taking it nice and chilled out and not putting any pressure on anything. Just being us."
The ballroom dancer says that their hectic lives allow them to have a "healthy normal relationship" as he says "living the villa relationship" in real life is impossible.
He said: "Me and Maura are absolutely amazing at motivating each other.
"We fully understand that we are so super busy at the moment and, in a unique way, it's quite nice.
"It allows us to have a healthy normal relationship.
Living the villa relationship on the outside world isn't possible.
24 hours a day, not working, not doing anything. We are so supportive of each other."
Since leaving the villa, 28-year-old model Maura has landed a presenting job on 'This Morning' and is set to compete on 'Dancing on Ice' and Curtis predicts she will "go far".
He said: "I love everything she is doing, she is really brilliant and she is going to go far in the TV world."
Asked if Curtis is her official boyfriend yet, Maura said recently: "He's not. We haven't seen each other in two weeks but that's because of our hectic schedules, but I mean, I'm happy with the pace we're going and I think he is as well."
