"We weren't looking to do that stuff on camera and I wouldn't put her in that position, and I don't think she wants to be in that position to be honest," the reality TV star told The Daily Telegraph's Confidential.
While we've all been waiting for Ryan to weigh in on the rumours, Network 10 released a statement in which they vehemently denied they were secretly sneaking off to have sex in an area of the camp where the cameras do not cover. The executive producer of the adventure series said they've "trawled through days of footage" and have found no evidence of the pair sleeping with each other.
While their relationship seems to be strengthening at a steady pace, thousands of viewers have argued the couple were forging their feelings for one another in an attempt to grab headlines.
Ryan has since addressed and subsequently dispelled claims their relationship was disingenuous, confirming he is, in fact, head over heels for the bubbly Brit.
"Obviously I'd love it to keep going outside of the show. I really do like her," the Married At First Sight alum said in his final with hosts Chris Brown and Julia Morris.
“I went in there as myself and I wouldn’t do anything for the camera,” Ryan said. “At the start of the show, when we first slept in the same bed, I said, ‘If you’re doing this for the cameras, I want nothing to do with it'. I'm not stupid.
"There are real feelings there, on my side definite feelings. I didn’t expect any of it but I’m very lucky. It felt like I had a loved one in there."
