Faye Brookes reveals “relationship test”

Clearly keen to show off their skills, the pair created a “gravity cake”. It was covered in bright yellow icing and slices of lemon.

The actress quipped: “This is really going to test our trust and relationship if we are going to work together to bake a half decent cake.”

Indeed, Faye was seen teasing her personal trainer beau and issuing instructions to him regarding the cake’s decoration during their day out.

This is really going to test our trust and relationship!

And, it appears Faye’s family approve of the actress’s new love match.

They accompanied the couple to the event. They also went head-to-head with the pair in a 90-minute Great British Bake Off-style competition.

Split from Gareth

Faye reportedly split from her former fiancé, Pop Idol star Gareth Gates, in the middle of August last year.

Gareth reportedly demanded that Faye return the £30,000 diamond engagement ring he had given her.

The singer also denied that his “controlling behaviour” was behind their split.

Rumours also emerged that Faye had enjoyed a fling with her Corrie co-star Sam Robertson while on a break from Gareth.

And, later in August, Gareth was said to be “heartbroken” at reports Faye had grown close to her personal trainer – Joe.

They are said to have bonded over their mutual love of fitness.

Over on Instagram, Faye has declared her love for her new man every so often.

In one post, she wrote: “The way he looks at me, the way it has been, the way it is now, the way it will stay.”

Friends commented she seemed “so happy” with her hunky new man.
