Selling Sunset returned to Netflix for season 2 on Friday, May 22nd and its a bigger hit than before. When the sophomore season launched, it didn’t take too long for fans to hit the internet, gossiping about season 2’s antics.

We’ve had new cast members introduced, bigger sales than ever and a whole bucket load of drama, both in and outside the workplace.

But one of the biggest surprises of the series came as Heather announced she was in a new relationship with someone we’ve seen on our screens before: Tarek El Moussa.

So, we thought we’d do some digging and find out how Heather and Tarek got together. Check out their relationship timeline here!
