But as talk turned more personal, the 32-year-old was left cringing as the panel suggested he propose to his other half live while discussing future marriage plans.
Asking whether a trip down the aisle was in their future, Hanni answered: “Yeah definitely one day.”
To which Jack added: “I think it’s only sensible really to have those conversations with a partner or someone you’re dating even if you’ve only been going out a few months.
“As soon as you know its serious.”

“I think we fell in love quite quickly, didn’t we?” Hanni added. “And from that we kind of just clicked and we were on the same page and you do have those conversations.
“But yeah I think we’d like to in the future. I would hope.”
Yet, the cheeky panellists pushed a potential proposal further when Andrea dared Jack to asked Hanni to marry him on TV after his former co-star Beverly Callard’s husband spoke of planning a secret vow renewal.
“Guys, we can help you out here,” Andrea said. “We’ve already had one live proposal on Loose Women. We could almost have a hattrick and have two.

“We very good, very encouraging. Off you go, it’s only us.”
Completely fluttered by the suggestion, Jack was left red-faced and simply saying “no” as the panellists’ fell into hysterics.
Andrea said through laughter: “Do you know what sometimes the best bit of this job is sitting like naughty aunties just embarrassing the kids”.
Last month, Hanni defended Jack after a troll said “he has nothing to do with his disabled son”.
And hours after Hanni spoke up for him, his former fiancée Lauren Shippey also claimed the star was neglecting their two children.
Sales executive Sammy Milewski gave birth to son Greyson in 2010 after Jack cheated on Lauren.
He has never met the lad but pays maintenance to Sammy, who suffers from an incurable condition that wracks his body with agonising seizures.
He has alternating hemiplegia of childhood (AHC) – a one-in-a-million genetic disorder.
Hanni tackled the situation head on in a q&a with followers on Instagram.
One person asked: “How do you feel dating a man who has nothing to do with his disabled son Greyson?”
Hanni replied: “I get trolled by people like you on a daily basis.
“I wasn’t in Jack’s life when that happened. What I can comment on is that he was 21, a young man himself in the public eye with a lot to learn.
What is alternating hemiplegia of childhood?

- It normally presents itself before the age of 18 months but can occur in adults
- 50% of AHC sufferers also have epilepsy
- There is no cure
- One in 1,000,000 people have AHC
“Everyone has a past, it’s important not to judge a book by its cover.
“You might think you know the facts but you don’t,” she added. “The world is already at an uncertain stage and it’s not going to get any better any time soon with trolls such as yourself.
“If you thought I wasn’t going to respond, you were wrong. Have a lovely evening.”
In light of Hanni’s comments, Lauren revealed how the David Platt star has failed to regularly see their kids.
