Eyal Booker has candidly opened up about missing his girlfriend Delilah Belle Hamlin as they spend lockdown apart.
The former Love Island star, 24, said he is finding being separated from Delilah “frustrating”.
Eyal’s 21 year old girlfriend Delilah, who is actor Harry Hamlin’s daughter, is currently in lockdown in Los Angeles while he has stayed in the UK – despite unveiling plans to move to LA last year.
And the reality star, who has just launched fitness subscription platform Empower, opened up to OK! online about missing his girlfriend.

He told us: “It’s really difficult and really frustrating. But, it’s something that we’re both determined to get through.
“I think the frustrating thing is there’s no end date that we can look forward to, when we’re gonna see each other next because we really don’t know yet.
“But, we take it day by day and every day that comes and we’re just having to get through it.”
The couple have been dating for more than a year, after the daughter of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna slid into his DMs as Eyal caught her eye on Love Island.
Eyal, who split from his Love Island band last year, revealed he and Delilah have consciously been keeping their communication up while they stay apart.
He said: “We’re FaceTiming all the time and we’re making sure that our communication is really spot on so that we can finally be together and we have FaceTime dates and we watch films together on FaceTime and we just do the things that we would try and do together but, from halfway across the world.”
Despite missing Delilah, Eyal said he has been in lockdown for so long that, like many of us, he is starting to feel like it’s the new normal.

He said: “This now feels like normality. It’s weird. So, yeah, I’m always missing her but I’ve got used to being in lockdown and not going anywhere and just FaceTiming her.”
Eyal sweetly added: “I’d like it to be over now because we’ve been absent from each other for a long time.”
And, in terms of his ideal first date with Delilah after lockdown, Eyal simply wants to spend time with his girlfriend.
When asked about his ideal post-lockdown date, he said: “It would literally just be, just to be with each other and we’ll probably stay in and get a takeaway and watch a film. I just want to spend quality time with each other. I don’t wanna go anywhere or do anything, just see her, really.”
