‘When me and Dean met four years ago he always said that he wanted kids and I said I definitely wanted kids one day. So, I can’t wait for that day to finally happen.’
Partner Dean added: ‘When we’re out shopping and we see children’s clothes, we’re both like, “Aw, that would be lovely.”‘
The couple started the process of adoption in January 2019 but it was delayed last year due to the pandemic.

During lockdown Harry and Dean launched their successful make-up brush business Celebrity Brushes and decided to pause their adoption for two years to focus on the company.
Dean explained: ‘When we started the adoption process, we actually started it two years ago in the January, and then Covid started in March last year so we didn’t even get a chance to get into it properly.
‘All the meetings were cancelled. Obviously during the first lockdown there was nothing going on, no meetings, and you had to stay at home.

‘We planned to launch Celebrity Brushes actually the year after. Because we were both at home, we had already started on all the designs already so we just said lets bring it forward because we’ve got this time on our hands, lets do something positive with it.
‘Then obviously we didn’t expect it to be as big as it is.’
Harry added:’We’re still really passionate about going through our adoption process. It’s something we are 100% doing.’

The couple were due to marry in August last year but have since cancelled their big day twice due to the pandemic.
However, they are determined to say ‘I do’ at a celebrity-packed wedding in 2022 and are hoping to book a summer date again.
And Harry insists the they are going to make a statement with their nuptials which he says are going to be ‘very traditionally Essex’.
He revealed: ‘The wedding is going to be very big. I think that’s going to be very traditionally Essex,’ with Dean adding: ‘There will be nothing toned down about that.’
Harry continued: ‘We’ve literally cancelled our wedding twice and me and Dean said we cannot rearrange our wedding again and have to cancel a third time.
‘So we’ve literally waited for the all clear and now we’ve got the all clear for the 19th, on the 19th I’m ringing my venue up and I’m going to be like, “Book me in!” Hopefully we’ll be getting married next August.’

The couple recently moved home, leaving the apartment they shared together and into a house with a garden for their two dogs.
They explained how they’d been looking for a property for months and one morning found their dream home online, one they’d had their eye on for a while but wasn’t previously on the market.
And, while they are still planning to have a bold and glamorous wedding, they say they’ve dialed down their home, making it a ‘bit more Chelsea than Essex’.

Harry explained: ‘In our previous homes everything was bling, everything was diamond, vajazzled, everything was proper in your face.
‘This house we’ve gone a bit more classier. We’ve actually de-Essexed a little bit. We’re getting a bit more Chelsea than Essex.
‘It’s a bit more of a grown-up house this one. We’ve got rid of all the diamond, mirrored furniture, all the crushed velvet. We’ve got a nice chesterfield now, nice glam furniture.
Dean added: ‘I feel like we’re pretty sorted. We’ve got a home gym now which is nice. We’ve got an Instagram room,’ before Harry chimed in: ‘We’ve got a home gym we’re never going to use. Our new house is such a show home. I’m literally just waiting for MTV Cribs to give me a call.’
