It's no secret the personal trainer had a fleeting relationship with the MAFS bride after the former couple met three years ago while training at the gym.
"We had a little fling. I was her personal trainer and that's why her body is in top shape. We are just friends now, that's all. Cyrell isn't blowing up and having a cyclone," he said.
Natasha backed this story up, telling WHO last week: "We've been friends for years and years. Like way before he was on Love Island," she said. "We crossed paths and then he was my trainer and we had a fling."
Dishing on what they thought about last night's episode, Cyrell laid into Steve Burley, slamming him for the way he's been treating his MAFS bride, Mishel Karen. As we know, he shocked viewers when Mishel revealed he had a long list of things he'd "banned" her from doing— one of which included saying the words "sh*t", "poo" or "wee".
"If Steve was my partner and he put his hand up to my face while I am trying to voice my opinion, I would turn that hand and slap it back onto his face," the former MAFS bride told WHO online exclusively, confirming she sided with Stacey Goonan who called Steve "sexist" and "disgusting".
"It is very disrespectful and quite sad she has a list of things that he is disappointed with."
Addressing the barbershop owner directly, Cyrell continued: "You need to wake up from the 1970s and realise you don't treat women like that. Women can voice their opinion, too."
The reality TV veteran also claimed Steve is solely to blame for Mishel still feeling uncomfortable and uneasy around him.
"If you can't tell your partner, "I need to take a big fat sh*t" then why are you even with him? You are supposed to feel comfortable. If she can't even f***ing swear, he's not the lady for her."
Praising Mishel for speaking honestly about their turbulent relationship after Steve told her to "shut up" on more than one occasion, the new mum says she knows the real reason why he desperately wants to remain in the experiment.
"I am really proud of Mishel for writing "leave". I think from the looks of it Steve's really just writing "stay" because he would like some more air time. He focuses on everyone else's relationship instead of his own.
"That's the vibe I am getting from him. I would've done the same thing as Mishel. I wouldn't allow myself to be treated like that. I am very proud of Mishel for writing leave. It's a punishment for him and himself."
