Big Brother star Lateysha Grace has confessed she is "still in love" with her ex-boyfriend and the father of her child, Ben Charles.

She and Ben welcomed their daughter, Wynter, now ten-months-old, in September last year and split shortly after becoming parents. Ben has previously revealed the decision to end their relationship was a "mutual agreement" as distance had started to put strain on his romance with Lateysha.

Since then, the pair have remained close, however, and now Lateysha has admitted she still has feelings for her ex-beau.

Opening up about Ben in a recent chat with Star magazine, Lateysha revealed: "I'm still in love with my baby's father. There is a chance we will work things out. He's a great father and he's been really supportive of me."

Ben had been looking after Wynter while Lateysha was starring on Big Brother, and after she was subject to a slew of criticism for choosing to do the show and leave their daughter, he made sure to jump to her defence.

Taking to Wynter's Instagram page, Ben said: "I find it amusing seeing the certain internet trolls questioning how Lateysha can leave her child to go on Big Brother.

"There have been numerous people enter the house with children. Let me assure you from now Wynter is in safe hands with me, she is very happy and she has got a massive family to be there for her as well. #bbuk."

Lateysha was subject to criticism after choosing to take part in Big Brother.

He also showed his support for Lateysha in a chat with Heat magazine, explaining that her taking part in Big Brother can lead to more opportunities and help benefit Wynter's future.

Like Lateysha, Ben has also expressed his hopes of the pair maybe reuniting one day. While she is based in Wales, he is located in London, but the ex-couple have remained "very good friends" since separating.

Speaking about his former flame, Ben gushed: "You never know with me and her. I feel like maybe one day we might get back together... We care about each other so much."
