Sharing that the couple has incredible chemistry, Odoom said that the duo has a bond like nobody else.

“They have this incredible chemistry. There’s not a presenting duo around that has that kind of bond. They know what the other is thinking and they are always laughing and joking on set but there is that kind of will-they won’t-they tension which they’ve always acknowledged and played with,” he said.
