Jake Ellis and Michael Turnbull attend the Grand Prix in Melbourne

They will take a second shot at finding love on Bachelor In Paradise.

And Jake Ellis and Michael Turnbull proved they won’t be short of female suitors on Saturday, as they attended the Australian Formula One Grand Prix at Albert Park in Melbourne. 

The reality stars appeared to have bonded while filming in Fiji together, and at th event wrapped their arms around each other and smiled as they stopped for photos.

Jake, 31, cut a dapper figure in a denim shirt and white trousers, which he teamed with suede loafers. 

Michael, meanwhile, stuck to a monochrome vibe and rocked a black blazer with skinny jeans and leather boots.

The pair are no doubt excited to watch their return to TV as Bachelor In Paradise airs this Sunday. 

Jake is likely in for some explosive scenes on the show, as it emerged he was caught up in a love triangle with co-star Florence Alexandra and Davey Lloyd.

The 28-year-old Dutch model confessed on Thursday that she briefly dated Jake before the show, and claimed he was keen to ‘rekindle’ things when they landed in Fiji.

She added that things became strained when Davey also made a beeline for her – joking that ‘the entire camp’ wanted to romance her at one point.

Florence, who failed to win Matty ‘J’ Johnson’s heart on last year’s The Bachelor, had no trouble attracting male admirers on  Bachelor In Paradise – which debuts this Sunday.

She admitted she had a fling with Jake, 31, but it was never ‘super intense’ and it ‘fizzled out’ after a couple of dates. 

‘But then he rocked up in Paradise and was pretty aggressive in pursuing me, even though I was getting to know Davey. I didn’t know he was still interested’ she told OK! magazine. 

Discussing her romance with Jake further with WHO magazine, she hinted that the hunk’s efforts to woo her were successful.

‘I knew either we would rekindle or we would both go our own way and he decided to put a lot of effort to get me back. That was cool with me!’ she confided.

But confusing matters once again, she added of Davey: ‘I hadn’t met him before but I’m very excited he’s going to be there.’

Davey was Sam Frost’s failed suitor in 2015, while Jake came up short while pursuing Georgia Love on The Bachelorette.
