TWO flatmates trapped together under lockdown are increasingly aware it is only a matter of time before they crack and shag each other.
Nikki Hollis has never fancied Stephen Malley, but after six weeks in lockdown she has found herself coming round to the idea that he is not utterly repulsive either.
Hollis said: “He definitely seems more attractive than he did. I don’t know if that’s because he’s now got a lockdown beard covering most of his face or it’s simply the magnetic pull of having zero other options.
“Even the sofa is starting to look quite rugged and handsome.”
Malley said: “The possibility of getting it on with Nikki was the first thought that passed through my head when the lockdown was announced, even before fear for my job or my family’s safety.
“My mates used to joke that it would take a global apocalypse to get her to sleep with me. I never thought I’d be so grateful to a deadly pathogen.”
