Ahead of one of the commitment ceremonies, James admitted the pair had not been talking.
They both agreed there was no hope in staying in the experiment if they did not have feelings for each other.

James told 9Entertainment: “We are on good terms, we caught up last week and had a meal, we’re going to go for a walk around the park.
“I like Joanne, I think she’s a great person.”
