Growing close: ‘Yeah I think so too,’ replies Aaron, before the blonde admits: ‘I think you’ve surprised me most out of everyone, obviously you’re very attractive’
She said: ‘I’ll be real with you, Tom is obviously ticking pretty much every box for me but it’s early still, I haven’t even spoken to you properly, it would be nice to explore.’
However, their cosy chat was awkwardly interrupted by Tanya Manhenga – who is coupled up with Shaq – as she brought the airport security officer a cup of tea.
And despite seemingly in a happy couple with Tanya, Shaq told Zara that he felt the same way and would like to get to know her.
He told her: ‘If you are actually interested in someone you owe it yourself to get to know them, you don’t know what it could be on the outside.

‘On the outside you would be someone that I would go for so I do want to explore that to see the vibes’, to which she says: ‘Same with you.’
Shaq and Zara then bonded as they spoke about them both being from London as he remarked: ‘You’re from London too, you just get it.’
With Zara adding: ‘Same with you, we are from the same area, that’s the thing, that would just work instantly.’

Keen to be straight with Tanya, he later sat her down and made his intentions clear that he would like to get to know Zara.
Tanya asked: ‘Do you speak about me with Zara? Do you feel like when you speak to her about like, there’s anything there?
To which he admitted: ‘When we do speak, I feel like there is a vibe there and we do get along, I’m gonna speak to her a bit more.’
