A Place In The Sun host Scarlette Douglas, 32, has remained relatively tight-lipped about her relationship status in the past. The Channel 4 star has now spoken out about her new romance with her boyfriend Lyndrik Xela, as she addressed the challenges the couple face.
For the past year Scarlette has been with Manchester-born musician and The Voice contestant Lyndrik.
The couple met 12 years ago when they were starring in West End show Thriller Live.
The small-screen star, who regularly films abroad, admitted it’s “tricky” to balance her work schedule and home life.
The property expert explained that she often works “crazy hours” and is often away from the home they share together.
Prior to the recent travel ban, Scarlette spoke candidly about the challenges of working on A Place In The Sun.
She explained: “The hardest part, well there are a few things that are a bit tricky.
“I’ve done this show primarily being single and I’ve got a partner now.”
Scarlette went on: “We’ve been together since [the first] lockdown and we’ve known each other for years and but have now got together.
“But it’s a bit tricky going away because I’m leaving him at home and he’s doing his thing and I’m away. My hours can be crazy sometimes so I guess that’s what’s hard.”
The TV star recently gushed over her beau in a candid Valentine’s Day post, in view of her 19,000 Instagram followers after sharing a snap of the pair singing on stage.
Scarlette penned: “It’s Valentine’s Day! Here’s to my Quaran-tine @iamlyndrikxela. Those who sing together, live happily ever after…. right babe?!!!!! Love you to the fridge and back.”
Lyndrick replied: “Love you more than chocolate fudge cake babe.”
The Channel 4 presenter also addressed “missing” her family members during lockdown.
“You do miss a first birthday, a birthday dinner or a gathering. You can’t do things like that anymore,” Scarlette remarked. “Those things are a bit tricky.”
She continued: “I have great friends and family and I miss them. When I get back from quarantine it’s fine, because I’m living with my partner and we’re together.
“But I can’t see my nieces or nephews, or go for dinner with mum and dad.”
Scarlette added: “So those things are tricky with Covid and quarantine rules. It’s so difficult.”

The property expert also talked about life abroad and admitted she often isn’t aware of where they are currently filming the series.
Scarlette chuckled: “Sometimes you don’t know where you are. You wake up and think, ‘What country am I in today?’ What timezone is it? What hotel am I in?’
“In the grand scheme of things there are much bigger problems to have.”
Scarlette made her Channel 4 debut in 2015, after the former West End performer’s background in real estate.
From her experience buying property, Scarlette later secured a role in A Place In The Sun.
She has appeared in a vast array of stage performances including The X Factor West End musical, before making the switch to television presenting.
Scarlette also took part in Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and joined the duo as a dancer on their UK arena tour.
A Place In The Sun airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 3pm.
