Asked if they met at work, Hanni said: ‘I was really behind the scenes, we didn’t directly work with each other.
‘We kind of knew each other to say hi and then we started talking at a mutual friend’s wedding. We just clicked and he made me laugh.
‘It didn’t go anywhere from that until we bumped into each other in Sainsburys,’ admitted Hanni, with Jack adding: ‘Yeah, you were in your gym gear in lycra.’
Hanni continued: ‘I had no make-up on, I had a bright red face, I was sweating… I was so embarrassed!’

Lauren slammed Jack for failing to keep his promises to his children and criticised his decision to discuss his ‘blended family’ in a recent magazine interview.
Speaking to The Sun, she said: ‘It made me laugh. We’re about as blended as a breeze block in a cement mixer.’
Jack and Lauren were in a relationship from 2002 to 2017 and are parents to Nyla, 11, and Reuben, six, while Greyson was born in 2010 from a one-night stand with Sammy Milewski.
Lauren said she was unhappy after reading an interview her ex gave to OK! magazine where he spoke about homeschooling their children with his new girlfriend Hann, during the coronavirus lockdown.

She said: ‘I’m speaking out now because Jack has used his celebrity status to give an interview which portrays a false image of how he behaves.
‘Jack didn’t see his children for almost four months! He hurt me emotionally quite a few times. I always had his back and forgave him. I never, ever planned to speak about our relationship but enough is enough.’
Lauren also told the publication that Jack hurt her emotionally and she now feels the public needs to know what he is ‘really like’.

Jack and Lauren met when they were teenagers and were engaged until she broke off their relationship in May 2017.
Lauren forgave Jack for his one-night stand in 2010, saying he told her the truth on the Friday before it was due to be published in a Sunday newspaper.
She finally called quits on their relationship in 2017 when he failed to come home one night after reportedly going to a strip club in Leeds.
Lauren said Jack got together with Hanni a few months after their breakup and began to visit the children less frequently by 2018.
