Ouch! The Bachelorette runner-up Timm Hanly BLASTS newly-single former flame Angie Kent – and explains why ‘he wouldn’t be interested in her even if she slid into his DMs’

The Bachelorette runner-up Timm Hanly was left heartbroken when Angie Kent dumped him for Carlin Sterritt during last year’s finale.

But the 28-year-old said on Thursday that he’d moved on to ‘better and bigger things’ and wouldn’t consider dating the blonde, who is now single after splitting with Carlin earlier this month.

‘I wouldn’t be interested even if she slid into my DMs [direct messages],’ the tattooed larrikin told Hit 100.9’s Jimmy and Nath Show.

‘Whatever they do is up to them,’ he added. ‘That was a year ago for me now, I’ve moved on to bigger and better things.’

Timm, who is currently looking for love on Bachelor in Paradise, went on to say that he wouldn’t consider a reunion with Angie even if she appeared on the show.

He continued: [If she showed up in paradise] I’d probably look for the nearest life raft and I would just keep paddling.’

It comes after he spoke about Angie and Carlin’s break-up in an interview on KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O show on Wednesday.

Timm said that he’d been flooded with messages from fans telling him to rekindle his relationship with Angie.

He said: ‘I haven’t been able to get away from it actually because my DMs have just been full of people going, “Oh your shot!” and “Have a go.”‘

Radio host Kyle Sandilands chimed in: ‘You don’t really want to go back and have a crack at what you lost. That’s not what men do.’
