Anna Williamson has exclusively revealed to OK! VIP Club that she “loses track” of DJ Tom Zanetti and Made in Chelsea’s Sophie Hermann’s romance after they met on Celebs Go Dating.
The TV presenter and life coach, 39, described how the cast of the latest Channel 4 series, filmed at a sprawling nine-bedroom Surrey mansion in November, have kept in touch on a “big WhatsApp group”.

And speaking to OK! Online, Anna jested that she just cannot keep up with Tom, 31, and Sophie, 34, who have remained tight-lipped about their blossoming romance since leaving the Mansion.
Mum-of-two Anna said: “I lose track with Tom Zanetti and Sophie but they seem to have kicked onto a good thing there."
It comes as Tom didn’t recognise Sophie when he first arrived in the Mansion and had to ask what her role on the show was.
However, sources close to the show have said that this was instantly attractive to Sophie who became known on the show as “the Duchess”.
The pair then accidentally revealed they spent Valentine's Day together on their Instagram stories.
Tom tried to hide Sophie's identity, however, fans of the show were quick to clock the reality star's rings and painted nails.
Meanwhile the DJ has recently been spotted on Sophie's Instagram stories while she films for the next series of E4's Made in Chelsea.

Speaking about the other romances in the house Anna said: “I believe, ‘Shaneberly’, Shane [Finlayson] and Kim [Kimberly Hart-Simpson] are still going.”
She continued: “Everyone is getting on great still and we have a big WhatsApp group with all of our singles as well. It really is like one big happy family with like forty people on a group.”
Speaking about who “surprised” her in the Mansion, Anna said: “No one surprised me… maybe Sophie Hermann in how well she really settled in.
“I think Sophie was quite apprehensive about joining the Mansion and she has come away from it having had the time of her life.
“It’s lovely when you see people really starting to adapt to their surroundings.”
Anna, who lives in Hertfordshire with husband Alex Di Pasquale, their four-year-old son Enzo and daughter Eleanora, one, said the “mammoth show” “involved all kinds of tests, travel bubbles, childcare” in line with Covid-19 restrictions.

But Anna revealed how the singles and celebs were very much at home on the set.
She said: “I had just left my husband swanning around in his pants and I would walk into the Mansion to be greeted with 20 people swanning around in their pants – including the women!”
Laughing, she added: “I would walk in with my coffee and overcoat on and felt like a right nana turning up as they were all swanning around in their pants and sunglasses in the mansion. Interesting day in the office!
“I used to spend most of my morning telling them to put it away!”
The celebrity dating agency sees Anna work alongside relationship expert Paul C Brunson with the pair known for offering their pearls of wisdom and words of encouragement on the series.
Anna, who also presents Breaking Mum and Dad: The Podcast with husband Alex, said: “It is a very special show to be a part of and every cast that comes through it realises that.
“It sounds really, really cheesy, but once you have joined [the agency] it is like this big family and Paul and I are on the end of the phone whenever they need a bit of advice.”
Anna revealed how it was a “gamble” to do the series in the form of the Mansion with the celebrities and singles living together.
She said: “I think it is a gamble that really paid off. And to see what we have never seen before, what happens in between dates.
“It was really interesting for everybody and it really helped Paul and myself and even Tom [Tom Read Wilson] to get to know the singles even more because we were able to just skulk around the mansion and just spy on them when they didn’t know we were!”
New episodes of Breaking Mum and Dad: The Podcast are available now from Apple, Spotify and all good streaming platforms.
