Best date you’ve been on?
Emily: I was dating someone when I was living in Europe whom I met on a Contiki tour. We went out for drinks in bars around Prague and that was pretty cool. Ingredients for the perfect winter date night?
Tim: I love going to an old Art Deco theatre and getting an obscene amount of popcorn.
Emily: A good meal, an open fire, some music and a game of cards or a board game.
What’s it really like filming love scenes?
Emily: My love scenes so far on the show have only been with Tim and they’re actually hilarious – a lot of fun. I’m not easily embarrassed, so I don’t get too nervous about them.
Tim: The ones with Emily have been so much fun. We just make each other laugh so much – she has such a great sense of humour.
Most romantic thing a partner’s ever done for you?
Emily: Once for my birthday, a partner paid for me to go to China for 10 days and we visited the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. It was epic.
All-time favourite Home and Away couple?
Tim: I love Marilyn and John – they’re such an odd little couple.
Emily: Will (Zac Drayson) and Dani (Tammin Sursok) – oh my God, I was obsessed with them!
What romantic advice would you love to give your character?
Emily: Relax, enjoy and have fun.
Tim: Stay calm and carry on.
