The video is a narrative about a couple (played by Iain De Caestecker and Ophelia Lovibond) who hit a rocky patch, while out for a country drive - with Gabrielle as the observer of a tricky situation where one person is demonstrating a lot more affection than the other.

"We wanted to make this video a natural progression from the previous video for Home," says Joshua. "It was evident that Please Don't Say You Love Me has a strong narrative dialogue built into the song and so we felt a narrative approach was key to creating a video that complemented it.

"Other than writing the script itself, casting was the most important element of bringing it to life. We were honoured that Iain De Caestecker and Ophelia Lovibond liked the script and song enough to come on board and from there it all fell into place. Both Iain and Ophelia brought the honesty and subtlety to their characters that I felt was necessary to make the relationship relatable and believable."
