My Mum Your Dad star Sharon Benson left the Loose Women panel squirming on Thursday morning after she admitted she didn't fancy co-star Elliot Davidson when she first met him on the show.
Both Sharon and Elliot, who appear to be at the beginning of a blossoming relationship, appeared on the daytime show ahead of the semi-final of the hit ITV show on Thursday night.
And 53 year old Sharon made the awkward admission that she didn't actually fancy Elliot when she first met him.
When the panel, who included Kaye Adams, Frankie Bridge, Katie Piper and Jane Moore, asked the couple about when they first met, Sharon said: "It wasn't instant for either of us" leaving both the panel and the audience gasping.
"This is awkward!" remarked one of the Loose Women, before Elliot added to the cringe by confirming he didn't fancy Sharon at first either.
"Not for me, no," he said.
"It was really difficult to take anyone in, we were all standing in a horseshoe."
Elliot then likened the situation to when you are sitting on a train and trying to look at the person next to you through the corner of your eye.
"It wasn't until we first went in and we sat down and had a conversation while we were waiting for Davina."
It hasn't been straight forward for the couple on the show, as Sharon has found it hard to open herself up to the world of dating again.
She has been honest with Elliot about her past experiences of being cheated on in some emotional scenes.
Before the show kicked off, both Sharon and Elliot shared the type of person that they were hoping to find on the programme.
Elliot explained: "Someone that matches my traits and makes up for my inadequacies, and hopefully I can make up for theirs as well."
While Sharon said: "Somebody who has the same morals, the same qualities, the same aspirations and goals."
Elliot and Sharon are one of only three couples heading into the final two episodes, with the final happening on Friday, 22 September.
They are joined by Roger and Janey, and Paul and Natalie, who were one of the first to find a match.
