Paddy was dating a Love Island contestant right before The Bachelorette
Recent Bachelorette evictee Paddy Colliar revealed he dumped a woman he was seeing to get on TV.
The 27-year-old told Now To Love that he'd been dating someone immediately prior to getting the Bachelorette gig - and before that, he'd dated Love Island's Erin Barnett.
"I was seeing someone for nearly two months just before I went in the house and then before that, I was seeing Erin [Barnett] from Love Island.
"We were together for four months, but the timing just wasn't right."
Paddy said he'd applied for the show before meeting Erin.
The outspoken gym manager said that even though he was doing just fine in the love department, he wanted to "to take the opportunity" to get his mug on telly.
"I was single. I was at a point where I was concentrating on work, focusing on myself and then I guess the timing was right. I took the opportunity and I do not regret anything."
Erin ended up meeting Eden Daily on Love Island, with their relationship ending in September. Paaddy, meanwhile, will forever be synonymous with his favourite adjective:
