Since the initial lockdown, Roxy has been in a relationship with comedian Jack, 32, after the couple met on a trip to Australia, with the model moving to his London home after just a few weeks of dating.
Jack previously admitted that while the decision “ hastened ” their relationship, they missed the commonplace things like restaurants and movie dates.
On the Couples Quarantine podcast, he said, “Oddly, that was kind of fun because we spent a lot of time together and it speeds up the relationship in a way.
When the lockdown ended, we realized a lot of things. We had never seen a movie together. We had never been to a restaurant in England as we met in Australia. ‘

Jack dated actress Gemma Chan, 38, between 2011 and 2017, and he previously said he regretted not marrying her.
To his mother Hilary on an episode of his Netflix series, Travels With My Father, he said, “I’ve increased my chances for that. I did. I could have gotten married, but I screwed up. ‘
In the episode, which was filmed before Jack started dating Roxy, he apologized to his mother for being the only single member of their immediate family as it meant attending his sister Molly’s wedding alone.
He added, “I’m sorry I’ll be attending the wedding alone and I’m sorry you have two kids who are in modeling relationships and one who will be alone to try for a bridesmaid.”
