Ivan was hoping his parents would be on their best behaviour too. They weren’t. Dashed hopes all ‘round.

He has described his parents as “a little bit quirky and embarrassing” and, as we saw at the wedding, Ivan’s mum has a well of self-confidence even JLo could envy.

Ivan’s parents Michael and Joanne were joined by friends of his and Aleks’ for lunch.

“What would you do Aleks if Ivan was reluctant?”

“Whether you have or not been intimate, do you find that assists in one’s relationships with each other?”

As not one of Joanne’s questions were answered, Ivan’s friend Ali decided to come to the rescue and asked straight up if the couple had slept together.
