They had a brief relationship then, but it was years later on Boxing Day 2014 when their romance rekindled.

Andrea, 40, a daycare support assistant said: “Patrick found me on Facebook and asked me to go on a date saying I was the only person he ever loved.

“We went on a date and he cooked me a romantic meal and we’ve never looked back.

“Patrick says I’m his one true love, his best friend and his soul mate.”
