“We definitely knew people knew we were close to each other. I think they were worried about the strategic side rather than the romantic side,” Locky said.
Brooke added: “I did have a few people in my ear telling me to be smarter and to distance myself from him but I didn’t exactly listen!”
Brooke went on to admit that there was an instant attraction between the pair.
“I definitely didn’t enter the game thinking I would have a romance with anyone,” she said.
“He’s pretty big and manly so as soon as I saw him on the beach I knew I was in a bit of trouble. I think we spoke for about 30 seconds before we agreed to be the other’s closest ‘ally’.
“In my opinion, strategically it’s not the smartest move to be so closely aligned to someone and more importantly, I knew that I’d have hairy legs and be extremely smelly in no time. It’s not really the ideal setting to meet your next man.”
However, Locky was keen to stress that they tried to keep their PDA to a minimum.
“There was never too much PDA anywhere on the island, just hugs and some cuddles I guess. Remember we haven’t showered in ages,” he said.
“Even though Brooke seemed stunning every day.”
Brooke added: “We tried our best to keep PDA to a minimum and only really spooned at night time. During the day, we tried to keep our distance but I don’t think we fooled anyone.”
