Love Is Blind returned to screens recently, in the form of a reunion special which saw Matthew Barnett and Amber Pike and Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton celebrate anniversaries.

One year on from lockdown binge show Love Is Blind landing on Netflix, the stars got back together to celebrate the show's success, and enjoy drinks at a lavish party.

Amongst those returning to our screens was Jessica Batten, who very nearly wed Mark Cuevas on the show, after they got together based on their connection through a wall, having never previously met.

Romance wasn't on the cards for the pair after all, but that hasn't stopped the blonde beauty from finding it elsewhere.

Jessica is dating California-based foot and ankle surgeon Benjamin McGrath, and she opened up on her new romance with OK! Online.

When asked if they're super loved up, Jessica said "absolutely," adding: "We are having a lot of fun and taking it all day by day. He's a keeper!"

Jessica and Benjamin haven't shied away from sharing their life together on Instagram, and the sweet pair often post loved-up couple snaps.

Where marriage is concerned, Jessica explained they're just "taking everything day by day."

"Marriage may be in the cards or not, my goal is just to bring happiness and peace to those I love and myself. I am not someone who believes marriage equals happiness.

"I just feel blessed to have found someone who makes everyday a little better," the star admitted.

Despite skyrocketing to fame on hit show Love Is Blind, Jessica is in no rush to do another reality show, telling OK! she won't be doing anything related to her personal life again.

Jessica also dished the dirt on the After the Altar reunion party, sharing with OK! Whether it really was as awkward as it looked.

Jessica admitted she had reservations about doing the reunion and admitted it was "disappointing" that her former flame Mark Cuevas didn't turn up.

She explained: "I had reservations but decided it was worth it to show up out of respect for everyone who watched my journey and supported me through the adversity. It was disappointing that Mark decided to stay home but I respect his decision.

"Filming was a lot of fun, especially the girls night pizza party. I was really excited to see the crew – I became close with a lot of them, probably more-so than the cast.

"It was great to see everyone though since it had been so long. I had a lot of fun getting dressed up – none of us had done so in a year or more."
