Discussing how his passion began, he told OK! Online: “It’s funny, all my family are big into cooking but about two or three years ago I binged watch season 15, 6 and 17 of Hell’s Kitchen and ever since I watched that I started going mad on it.

“I really enjoy it to be honest, and I get quite a few messages from people saying I need to do more cooking.”

Luckily for Callum’s gorgeous girlfriend Molly, who he coupled up with while on Love Island, she’s the taste-tester for Callum’s delicious recipes.

He told us: “If Molly’s in the house too I can always make her something.

“She loves it. Every time I make her something I say I want to hear her comments on it.”

Callum also shared an insight into his and Molly’s lockdown life, telling OK! Online they’ve been enjoying at home date nights.

“We did a date night on Valentine’s night and we’ve done a couple in lockdown and I think I’ve cooked each time.

What are the Love Island 2020 stars' real jobs, from a coffee bean salesman to a beauty consultant?

“I saw a recipe on Masterchef which I’d tried to copy and that was the first time, and then on Valentine’s Day I made duck breast and some dauphinoise potatoes and Molly tried to make dessert but it didn’t go too well!

“We’ve done a few date nights now, we’ll make a few cocktails, put some nice clothes on, light the candles and put a bit of music on and have a nice dinner.”

Callum and Molly recently moved into their very own gorgeous four-bedroom house in Manchester, where they live with their two adorable dogs.

Updating OK! Online on how things are going since their move into the stylish new home, Callum told us it took “a month or two” to get everything sorted, but that they got there in the end.

Callum, who has hinted at plans to marry Molly in the past, told us neither of them have any annoying habits as he said: “We’re both pretty much used to living together.”

He added: “I was with Molly’s family in the first lockdown and I got on with [her family] really well. We’ve got a family group chat and I’ve been introduced into that now.”

Callum and Molly discussed their gorgeous home with new magazine and took them on the grand tour back in November.

Speaking about the property Molly said: “It was quite stressful, but a good stress. Some of our furniture has been a bit delayed and we had a nightmare with our bed.

"Our bedroom is on the top floor and it’s just not finished at all. The house has three floors and the bed had to go up two flights of stairs but it wouldn’t fit! They had to go back and remake it so it was in different parts, but now it’s just half-made on the floor upstairs. It’s been a bit of a disaster!"
