Explosive new claims have surfaced about The Bachelor Nick Cummins’ split with the show’s rumoured winner Brittany Hockley.

After a production source confirmed the break-up to Daily Mail Australia earlier this month, Woman’s Day alleged on Monday that the relationship fell apart soon after the cameras stopped rolling.

An insider claimed that the former Wallaby, 30, was unconcerned about keeping up appearances for publicity purposes and was keen to move on with his life.

‘Things fell apart soon after the series ended and he refused to “fake it” to appease the network [Channel Ten],’ an on-set source told the magazine.

They further alleged that Nick has ‘never gotten over his ex’, Norwegian artist Martine Strøm Thomassen, which was a ‘massive issue’ for Brittany.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Network Ten and Nick’s manager for comment.

It comes after a Bachelor production source confirmed to Daily Mail Australia earlier this month that Nick was no longer dating the show’s winner.

‘The Honey Badger’s relationship is already over. This is obviously not what we wanted,’ they said.  

The new revelations will be a blow for Channel Ten, after the network coped with a similar PR disaster in 2014 when Blake Garvey ended his engagement to Sam Frost.

It also emerged last week that Nick will be overseas when The Bachelor finale airs next month, possibly in a bid to avoid public scrutiny over his break-up.

The sportsman will be in Papua New Guinea leading an 11-day Kokoda trail. 

The Bachelor continues Wednesday at 7:30pm on Network Ten
