It was reported in Monday’s Woman’s Day that the tension is ‘so bad’ between Manu Feildel, 42 and Pete Evans, 43, that they are forced to travel separately.

However, during a segment on Wednesday’s Sunrise where the pair promoted the upcoming series of My Kitchen Rules, Pete slammed rumours of a rift.

‘We do love each other,’ the Paleo-enthusiast told presenter Edwina Bartholomew, adding that they have a ‘deep relationship.’

‘We do love each other apart from what some people will write about us,’ Pete insisted live on-air, wrapping one arm around Manu’s shoulder.

‘We have a very deep relationship with each other,’ he continued.


French chef Manu, simply replied to Pete saying ‘Yes’.

Rumours of tensions were highlighted in Woman’s Day saying in December they travelled to Perth and onto Broome, and on both the inbound and outbound flight they travelled separately,’ according to a source.

My Kitchen Rules begins Monday night at 7:30 PM on Channel 7.
