Elly was inconsolable, choking back tears, as she had a heart to heart with Joe, who previously confessed to falling in love with her.

She began by telling Joe how happy it made her feel to hear that he was falling in love with her. 

‘You tell me that you’re falling in love with me. You know, I can’t tell you how happy that makes me feel, hearing you say those words to me.

‘I just don’t know if I felt the way I was supposed to feel hearing you say that, Joe.’ 

Emotional: Elly, who cut a glamorous figure in a form-fitting white gown and silver jewels, felt Joe deserved to know her true feelings away from the intensity of the rose ceremony
