Sam Thompson has spoken out about his relationship with Amelia Lily following Celebrity Big Brother.
Since striking up a blossoming romance in the CBB house, the pair have been out on a number of dates with one another.
But Sam says that the pair are "definitely not boyfriend and girlfriend" yet.
He explained to The Sun newspaper: “What I said in the house is completely true – I wanted to take her for a date outside the house, outside the f***ed up environment.
“Some people didn’t understand that. They thought I was leading her on.
“Everything has happened how I would hope it would happen. I take things very slowly in my actual life – I don’t like fake stuff, I want it to be organic.”
Sam told the tabloid they had been on three days so far, adding: "We're really busy, we're definitely not boyfriend and girlfriend but we're hanging out which is really fun."
As for the pair progressing things further, Sam said: “It's way too early to say [if there is a future].”
Earlier this month Amelia revealed her take on the pair's current status.
"Thing is, Sam was very respectful on the show, and that says a lot about the kind of person he is," she said. "Its funny because when you're trapped in the house together its frustrating, as we just wanted to get to know each other on a one-to-one basis."
Amelia revealed: "We're just hanging out. We're both very busy at the moment.
“We both came out of long term relationships so we're friends and hanging out and seeing where it goes. Who knows what the future holds.”
