Upcoming Bachelor in Paradise star Keira Maguire has let the cat out of the bag in a big way, stepping out with a new beau who is most certainly not a part of the soon-to-air Bachie season.

A physical spoiler if ever there was one, Keira, 34, was spotted with Love Island star Matthew Zukowski on a not-so physically distanced outing in Melbourne in photos shared today.

At 24-years-old, Matthew is ten years Keira’s junior, and the snaps published by The Daily Mail show the pair locking lips and packing on the PDA in an apparent first-glimpse of a budding relationship.

It would seem however, the love affair is far from brand new.

All the Instagram evidence that Keira and Matt have dated since March

A glance through the duo’s Instagram feeds all but confirms they have been dating since at least March, and perhaps even as early as January.

Back in January, directly after Keira would have wrapped filming in Fiji for Bachelor in Paradise, both she and Matt uploaded snaps at the Portsea Polo, just one day apart.

Sure, it’s a busy time of year for Polo and it could be nothing but a coincidence, but it looks like from that point on, the pair spent an awful lot of time at the same location, sharing photos just days and sometimes hours apart.

Coincidence? Maybe... but we think not!

From March the photos kicked off in earnest with Keira uploading a sweet snap at Pink. The Restaurant on March 6, only to have Matt share a photo in the exact same place days later on March 11.

On May 23 Keira showed off her inner nature-girl at the Toorongo Falls.

Who was also there that day? Yep, one Matt Zukowski on the very same platform, at the very same waterfall.

In June, both Keira and Matt uploaded a snap on the same stool of the same Melbourne cafe, Matt uploading his snap on Friday while Keira waited until the Saturday. Tricky move, but we see you.

Perhaps most damning of all the evidence is a slip of the tongue from former Love Island co-star Eoghann Murphy who asked: “Who took this photo?” on a snap of Matt a restaurant meal on June 25.

A couple of eagle-eyed fans spilled the beans replying: “Keira did!”

Now ,on the same day the pair were snapped out and about together, they both happen to be enjoying a ski trip at the same resort, at the same time.

The evidence suggests the duo have been locking lips, and grabbing takeaway coffees, long before they were spotted today, and sadly for fans of the series confirms Keira won’t be finding her happily ever after on the upcoming reality show.

The spoiler comes just one week ahead of Bachelor in Paradise’s premiere on July 15.

While fans of the pair started spotting the clues as early as March, they have never responded directly to questions about their relationship.

With only the paparazzi snaps officially showing the pair are together, and both still acting coy online, it remains to be seen when they will get candid with their fans about the romance.
