MANILA, Philippines -- Comedian Jason Francisco has admitted that he wants to renew his relationship with former girlfriend Melai Cantiveros

During the Thursday episode of the morning show “KrisTV,” host Kris Aquino kept teasing Francisco and Cantiveros while they were touring the new home of celebrity couple Cheska Garcia and Doug Kramer.

Aquino said it was evident from their body language that they have gotten back together, something which Cantiveros herself refuted.

“Hindi talaga kami nagbalikan Ms. Kris. Kung nagkabalikan kami sasabihin ko sayo kaagad,” she said.

The actress, however, said Francisco has been sending her text messages again recently.

“Hindi kami naglalandian. Lagi siya nagte-text, manood daw kami ng sine after mass,” she shared.

Thrilled to hear that they are communicating regularly again, Aquino asked Francisco if he is again courting Cantiveros.

“Parang nagsa-start ulit kami. Hindi naman ligaw 'yun. Parang gusto ko lang ibalik 'yung dati namin na maayos ulit,” he explained.

Last February, it was revealed on national television that Francisco and Cantiveros were no longer a couple.

In a heart-to-heart talk inside the Pinoy Big Brother House, Francisco told Cantiveros that he needs space, saying he is having a hard time focusing on his work and family.

"Ang kailangan ko lang ay space. Sobrang hirap kaya. Hindi ba sabi ko ang focus ko sobrang dami para sa akin. Ikaw, parang di ko naibibigay lahat, parang kapag naisip lang kita, kapag may time lang ako, kapag na-miss lang," he said.

Francisco also noted that things have changed ever since they left the PBB house.

Since the breakup, Cantiveros has had several suitors but has remained single.

In a previous interview, Francisco said he is still open to a reconciliation with Cantiveros.
