During the episode, Sophie, 34, spoke about meeting Tom and let slip that they have spoken every day since lockdown.

Speaking to Ollie Locke and his husband Jules, Sophie said: "I've met this man, his name is Tom Zanetti I'm not sure if you've heard of him he's a DJ?" to which Ollie replies, "Is this your bit of rough?"

She continues: "He is such a lovely man and he makes me laugh and I love that I only understand half of what he says - it's like Brad Pitt in Snatch."

Julius Cowdrey, who shares a birthday with Sophie and has a crush on her, serenaded Sophie with a song he had written for her.

However, the song was interrupted as Tom made his entrance, apologising for the intrusion and introducing himself to everyone in his thick Yorkshire accent.

He then upstaged Julius' song with a heartwarming present he had made, which was a drawing of him and Sophie.

Later at her Bavarian themed birthday party, Tom expressed how smitten he is with Sophie, asking everyone "Doesn't she look beautiful?"

He also established a friendship with Fredrik Ferrier, who said "Sophie has been looking for a prince Charming, and I think we found him" to a beaming Tom.

Luckily for Sophie's party guests, The 'You Want Me' DJ also treated them to a few of his tracks.
