Strictly Come Dancing partners Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer look set to spend Christmas together.
Made in Chelsea star Jamie, 32, made clear he wanted Karen, 38, to spend the festive season with his family as she remains unable to visit her own family in the US.
Speaking to Hello, Karen revealed she would be unlikely to be able to visit her own family in New York due to travel restrictions as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, all is not lost going by what Jamie has said.
In the joint interview with the publication, Jamie told Karen of her plans to visit her family: "I don't think you are, you're coming down to my house. I would be delighted to have you."

In the interview, Jamie also spoke of his hopes that he and Karen will reach the final and what would happen if he won.
Jamie predicted: "If we win I'd propose to my girlfriend Sophie, which I assume she would say no to because she'd be too embarrassed, so I'd then propose to Karen, who would also say no… then I would eat the glitterball."
