Adriano Zumbo Confirms Relationship With My Kitchen Rules Contestant Nelly Riggio

Celebrity dessert king Adriano Zumbo has confirmed he’s found love with reality TV star and aspiring chef Nelly Riggio.

The host of Channel 7 reality cooking show Zumbo’s Just Desserts, and the former My Kitchen Rules contestant have both taken to Instagram to tell the world that they are most definitely in a relationship!

The couple are both currently on holidays in the gorgeous Maldives enjoying a romantic getaway. Zumbo this week posted the picture below with Riggio, alongside the revealing caption: “Happy New Year 2017 from the Maldives!!!!! Looking forward to many years with this Hottie.”

Riggio reportedly began working in the research and development team at Zumbo Patisserie in September, having moved to Sydney for the job. The talented chef was still with partner JP Hilliet at the time (see photo below) but sources say their relationship deteriorated within a few months of the move.

Hilliet and Riggio’s open displays of affection for each other on last year’s season of MKR earned them the nickname, ‘The Lovebirds’.

Riggio also took to Instagram with the following photo showing the couple standing together with the caption: Too distracted to write anything!
