The two drive into the sunset.

Celebrity IOU: Joyride co-host Ant Anstead exclusively confirmed his romance with this season’s celebrity guest star Renée Zellweger while E! News’ Daily Pop on August 18. The couple fell in love while filming the Discovery + documentary series, but Ant was determined to keep their relationship under wraps for as long as possible.

“Everyone knows that Renée and I got pretty close because we kept it a secret for a while and now unfortunately some pictures have been taken and published there,” said Ant this morning. “But it was a real pleasure to work with her. She is a super professional and she can weld.”

But even Ants Joyride co-host Cristy Lee was surprised by his blooming love for Renée.

“I mean, to be honest, I’m disappointed because I thought she and I would start dating after that,” joked Cristy. “I thought, ‘Wait, ant, what?’ But she was amazing. We have worked on some great projects. The sparks I saw flying were definitely the sparks with the welder and grinder pulling off the roof of the Ford Bronco.
