"Of course" was Francine Diaz's short but sweet answer when asked if she misses her on-screen partner Kyle Echarri.
The singer-actor was among the celebrity housemates of "Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10" who entered Kuya's house last October 21.
During the "Huwag Kang Mangamba" finale media conference, the actress was put on the hot seat about Kyle.
Asked whether the actor informed her about his "PBB" stint, she said, "Sinabi niya po siguro nung last day ng taping namin [sa 'Huwag Kang Mangamba']. Doon ko lang din nalaman, doon kami nakapag-babye."
While it has only been a few days since he entered the house, Francine admits missing her on-screen partner.
"Of course Kuya MJ (Felipe). Minsan nakaka-miss 'yung pagiging makulit niya, 'yung presence niya," she shyly answered.
Fellow Gold Squad member Andrea Brillantes then teased Francine, revealing that the actress indeed misses Kyle.
"Oo naman. Lahat kayo nami-miss ko, kasama siya dun," Francine quickly defended.
Given their circumstances now, MJ asked Francine if she'd be willing to enter the house to meet Kyle, which she gladly agreed to. She said, "Yes po, bakit hindi? Wala namang problema."
She then left a message for the actor, just in case there's be a chance for him to see her message.
"Kyle, take care of yourself. I know nasabi ko sa'yo before ka pumasok ng 'PBB,' mag-ingat ka. Alagaan mo 'yung sarili mo, 'yung mga gamit mong laging nawawala, 'yung health mo, and your mental health. We miss you here," she reminded him.
Down to its last three weeks, “Huwag Kang Mangamba” airs on weekdays on primetime via Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, TV5, TFC, and Kapamilya Online Live. It's also accessible via iWant TFC, WeTV, and iflix.
