But despite her desperate attempts to keep her lover on the show, it seems their romance has now fizzled.
"We weren't ever dating, we were never anything like that," Piper tells New Idea.
"It was mutually just we were very, very, very close friends. I don't have anything bad to say about him at all.
"It's not that it didn't work out. We sort of kind of set that guideline from the beginning. We knew that he was in Melbourne, I was in Sydney. I live a completely different life than him. I'm a mum with two kids. He's a single guy, no kids, living in another state. It just was what it was and I think we both just really valued that friendship and bond that we had during the show and we're still friends."
But mum-of-two Piper insists that she and Victor are still close.
"We're still friends, we're still in contact, but as for relationship, it was just never going to go down that road," she admits.
"I think it's really nice that you had that while the show was on."
