Taking to Instagram with loved-up photos together, Carly wrote: ‘You can’t help who you fall for.. Who knew what I was looking for was right under my nose this whole time.’

Troy, similarly captioned a snap, ‘Here we are… everything did happen for a reason’, and changed his Instagram bio to display Carly’s initials and a love-heart emoji.

Troy, who told Ashley he ‘loved’ her during their eight weeks in the social experiment, said: ‘I knew Ash was going to need a lot of healing time. I thought it best to wait as long as possible before she did find out about me and Carly, so it was like a bandaid that had to be ripped off.

‘It had to come off at the reunion. It was tough. Obviously there was some pain and some reaction and I thought that was the best way to do it. Not to antagonise her. To just get it over quickly,’ he added. 

Carly, who clashed with Ashley at the reunion, told the publication: ‘Our intention was always to be low key and to be respectful of Ashley and Justin (Carly’s ‘ex-husband’), but we got a bit blindsided by a couple in the group who started to speak on behalf of Ashley without even knowing the situation. It sort of made it hard to have direct communication with Ashley.’

When asked who they thought was genuinely happy about their new pairing, they mentioned Alycia, Jo, Dean, Tracey, and Sean.
