Yeeelight app failing to add from Apple Home

I have recently bought a new bulb and I am trying to add it to the Yeelight app. With the latest iOS it forces you to add devices through Apple Home and I am unable to add it directly.

I successfully add the bulb to Apple Home however everytime I try to have the Yeelight app discover it from Apple Home, it fails. I have removed and re-added the bulb to Apple Home several times but it always fails. Does anyone know how to fix this?
