Last month Home and Away‘s Tai Hara was faced with cheating rumours after he was photographed getting close with co-star Phillipa Northeast who plays Evelyn on the popular show.
Tai, who is engaged to former Hi-5 member Fely Irvine, opened up about the rumours while attending the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere in Sydney on Wednesday night.
‘We [he and Fely] were humoured at it,’ he said before explaining the pair have learnt how to ignore ‘rumours’.
‘Rumours are rumours…people are going to write what they want to write so I think as long as we know [the truth], nothing else really matters. You have to be able to just laugh it off’.
With the controversy behind them, Tai said he is excited to share a white Christmas with Fely in Ireland before they settle on a date for their big day.
‘Right now we are just happy being engaged because it is a pretty amazing time in our lives so we haven’t set a date just yet,’ he said.
