Brett Moore blamed Bachelor In Paradise producers for making him look like a ‘s**t bloke’ after his so-called ‘secret relationship’ was exposed on Monday’s episode.
And on Tuesday’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, Brett’s girlfriend Stephanie Boulton slammed the show, claiming they were both approached to appear as a couple.
The blonde beauty, who starred on Matty Johnson’s season of The Bachelor last year, told KIIS FM: ‘They already knew about me and Brett.’
‘They knew we were a couple!’ Stephanie Boulton slammed Bachelor In Paradise producers on Tuesday, accusing them of creating fake drama with Brett Moore’s ‘secret girlfriend’ storyline
‘I actually got the call first for Bachelor In Paradise, and I first said no, and they already knew about me and Brett,’ Stephanie said.
‘Later Brett texted me and said he just got a call for Bachelor In Paradise, and I was like, “Sorry? I just told them no because I’m with you”,’ she added.
‘Then it turned out they were interested in him going on the show, so I texted back to (the producers) and said, “Hey, I spoke to Brett… I’m keen too. (So) we both got casted.”‘
Stephanie went on to explain the drama that ensued, saying: ‘He went on the island and this whole thing blew up!’

A Warner Bros. spokesperson denied producers knew beforehand that Stephanie and Brett were a couple, telling Daily Mail: ‘Once it was confirmed during filming that (they) were actually dating, Stephanie was no longer eligible for the show.’
The controversy over Brett’s so-called ‘secret’ girlfriend and what he was doing on a dating show for singletons was one of the main storylines in the first two episodes.
Bachelor fan favourite Tara Pavlovic was even dragged into the embarrassing situation after she was accused of ‘covering’ for Brett.
Short debut: Brett was sent packing from Bachelor In Paradise on Monday, after his so-called secret relationship with Stephanie Boulton was exposed
Brett, 28, took to Instagram after Monday’s episode to give his side of the story, blaming the show’s producers for making him look like a ‘s**t bloke’.
Brett explained that he and Stephanie were both approached to appear on Bachelor In Paradise in the ‘early days’ of their relationship.
The idea was that they would film the series and allow their romance – which had already started back in Australia – to ‘blossom’ in front of the cameras.
However, things apparently went pear-shaped when Brett ‘arrived on the island first’ and Stephanie’s contract was summarily ‘ripped up’ – making it ‘look like (he) went on a dating show without her’.
