A woman has admitted that she had started dating her own step-brother after she admitted that she had feelings for him for years.
The woman, Maddie, said that she developed the feelings when their parents were engaged.
The woman said that she had known Callum since she was a child as their parents were in a relationship, but that ended and the wedding was called off.
The woman was just 9 at that time, but the pair bonded over a time.
Callum reportedly shot Maddie with a BB gun and had a lot of fun with each other, however, they did not see each other again after their parents split.
The 2 stayed in touch through social media and Maddie admitted that her feelings for Callum grew.
The 2 decided to appear on ITV2’s Secret Crush.
The Secret Crush show is a dating game show where people reveal to their long-term crushes their feelings.
The show is hosted by Verona Rose, a comedian.
At the start of the episode, Maddie said:
I’m here to tell my brother that I fancy him. Just to be clear, we are not related – my mum and his dad were together many years ago. But since we got back in touch on social media he’s really matured and he’s very good looking. Callum is my mum’s boyfriend’s son from about nine years ago, he’s my ex-step brother I suppose. One conversation we had did start getting a bit flirty and that’s when I realised maybe it’s a bit more than step brother and step sister. I feel quite nervous about telling him but I’m also quite excited because I’d be interested to see what he thinks and what he has to say. If this goes badly I think we can say goodbye to any future family reunions, but hey ho.
Callum, who is from Essex, was unaware that his sister had feelings for him.
Before the meeting, the man said that he was not looking for love.
But the thing is, when she revealed who she is and her feelings, the face of the man went red.
Callum was in shock.
I can’t believe it’s you! That’s mad, that’s crazy. You were the last person I expected to walk though that door. I ain’t seen you in years, we haven’t even spoke that much – you’ve kept it a right secret. I’m blown away to be honest.
Maddie still lives with her mother and she said in the show that she has had feelings for Callum.
The woman said that Callum is genuine and is mature.
The duo also talked about the legality of their relationship and what their families would think.
Maddie believes that they are not breaking the law because they are not related.
Basically we were not even step brother and sister because they didn’t get married.
Maddie reminded the boy that their parents were once engaged.
However, he said:
Yeah, but they didn’t get married. We’re not doing anything illegal so it’s all sweet.
They then decided to go on a second date.
Maddie said that her mother was shocked about the date and even asked how the father of Callum would react.
The boy said:
I think my dad would probably be a bit lost for words. I don’t know how he’s going to take it but you know what, I don’t care – it’s not about him, its about me, about you.
Talking about Maddie, Callum had some pretty nice words.
He said after the show:
As long as she treats me well and can cook, maybe I will get down on one knee and propose. I can’t believe she had a crush on me, she was the last person I expected to be interest in me whatsoever. It’s crazy to think that after all these years I’ve still been in the back of her mind somewhere, that’s a compliment in itself. I think she’s absolutely stunning, definitely a bit of me. She’s a lovely girl, as gorgeous as anything, so I’m buzzing to be honest. I’m excited to see where this goes.
Maddie also had a word about Callum.
She said that he was really shocked and no idea who she was.
In her own words, she said:
He was really shocked, he had no idea it was me at all. I think that was one of the best dates I’ve ever had, we really clicked and got on well. I was really nervous, but I think it went really well. I’m excited to take him home to meet my mum, I can’t wait to see the reaction and the look on her face.
