    Although Liu has not yet responded to the news, netizens have already congratulated her in advance for finding the man of her life. Looking back at Bernice’s past love history, she had dating with Hawick Lau (Hong Kong actor and singer and was named as one of the Five Fresh Tigers of TVB) and Moses Chan, another Hong Kong actor and she also reportedly dated Alastair Lam, cousin brother of tycoon, Richard Li.

    After breaking up with Moses Chan, Bernice moved into Alastair’s house, but it was rumoured that when she subsequently discovered that the other party was not that rich and hence she broke up with him quickly after dating for 4 months. Alistair once hinted that ‘someone’ wanted to live luxuriously implying that Bernice is a ‘golddigger’.
