A woman has revealed she has a crush on her step-brother.
Maddie made the confession while appearing on the ITV2 dating show Secret Crush.
The programme brings together singletons who’ve been harbouring secret feelings for one another from afar.

Opening up about her unique situation, she explained that she met the guy, named Callum, when she was just nine years old.
“Just to be clear, we are not related – my mum and his dad were together many years ago,” she said.
However, the relationship didn’t work out so they didn’t see much of each other after that.
Fast-forward a few years and the pair found each other on social media and casually stayed in touch.
They were then reunited on the brand new reality show and Callum was left gobsmacked to hear the truth.
He said: “I can’t believe it’s you! That’s mad, that’s crazy. You were the last person I expected to walk through that door.”
When asked what he thinks his dad would make of the situation, he replied: “I think my dad would probably be a bit lost for words. I don’t know how he’s going to take it, but you know what, I don’t care – it’s not about him, it’s about me, about you.”
He added: “It’s crazy to think that after all these years I’ve still been in the back of her mind somewhere, that’s a compliment in itself.”
The shocking moment caused a huge stir on Twitter, with some branding it ‘too weird’.
“Ok but the stepbrother and step sister actually look like brother and sister,” wrote one person.
Another added: “That new Secret Crush show is a bit wild, how can your crush be your stepbrother?!”
Secret Crush is on weeknights at 6pm on ITV2.
