While a third said he should get down on one knee, adding: “Get married, do it! Propose.”
However, the couple came under fire after making controversial comments, during the most recent instalment of the ITVBe show.
During a discussion about chores, James asked his girlfriend: “You think I should be doing a bit more around the house?”

“Well, no, I don’t want you to be, like, mopping up and stuff ’cause I think that is a girls’ thing,” Yazmin replied.
“I probably wouldn’t fancy you if see you mopping about… But I think you could help with things a bit more without being told.”
Unimpressed viewers flocked to social media to vent their outrage at her comments.

“What the f**k is this Yaz gal going on about saying mopping up is a girls thing, shut up,” one wrote.
“Yaz gives girls a bad name. She finds men doing housework unattractive. Go back to the dark ages. We are all equal! #towie,” a fan tweeted.
