They asked when they are going to get married - and she re-posted it on her Story.

"Oh God, erm.... next year?" the ambushed 30-year-old replied.

"Like, as in this year?" she quizzed, remembering that it's now 2021.

"No, next year," Chris came back, quickly.

"Nothing annoys me about you," he said.

But Maura laughed because she had an answer for this one.

She said: "Chris gets very angry when he's hungry!"
