The pair only recently shared their first kiss in the house, after flirting up a storm from the moment they laid eyes on each other.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia earlier this week, Christina said the pair had spent time together after filming the show.
‘We hung out in Sydney a few weekends ago and got to spend some time together for the first time away from cameras,’ she said.

‘But I live in Melbourne and Brenton lives in Sydney,’ she added.
‘It would have been awesome if we lived close together, but for now I think just messaging and calling will do.’
Christina went on to call Brenton ‘a really charming boy to look at’ and ‘quite solid eye candy’, before describing how their relationship developed on the show.

‘I really feel like it was organic,’ she said.
‘I feel like the love story with Mitchell [Spencer] may have been pressured because I was obviously very uncomfortable, but with Brenton it was very natural and free-flowing.’
Earlier this month, Christina and Brenton were spotted enjoying a date night in Sydney’s Double Bay.
