So just how serious are the two?
“We live together, we haven’t spent a night apart since. I’m absolutely happy,” she says.
Valance goes on to explain Bellchambers isn’t just impressing her – he has met her very best friends – and has received the approval, so much so she’s planning double dates.
“We’ve never been loved up at the same time! It’s just nice, we’re both at that time in our lives we’re just chilled.”
Despite the glimmer in her eyes, Valance laments that their relationship began during a very difficult stage – the same time she lost her grandfather. She describes Bellchambers’ support as “really amazing, he has come to me at a good time in my life”.
Still, with her typical positive attitude, Valance finds a silver lining to losing a pillar of strength in her family, 88-year-old Dimitri Gogos, her grandfather and founder of the biggest Greek newspaper in Australia, Neos Kosmos.
“He’s had dementia for a long time; he was ready to go. And it was just so nice to see how respected he was and all the beautiful things he did for Australia … he was just the most sensational human being. It was nice to see him heavily celebrated in Australia,” she says.
Getting back to work no doubt helped Valance cope – alongside her cast mates Madeleine West, Annie Maynard, Cece Peters, and Isabella Giovinazzo, who she describes as “the best bunch of women”.
The show which has is being filmed for its second season, she says is going to surprise die-hard fans.
“We just did our first week of filming and it’s outrageous. What we’re doing is absolutely outrageous, there’s going to be huge shock value in the first episode,” she tells WHO.
Before issuing a spoiler alert, “No-one gets killed off … but fans will not be expecting what happens.”
