If you’re looking forward to season two of Bachelor In Paradise which is set to air early next year, then be warned we’ve got some serious spoilers for you.

Not only does former Bachelor star Alex Nation appear on the show, her ex-boyfriend, Richie Strahan – who picked her during the finale during 2016 – is also set to be in Paradise next year. Er, awkward much?

Last year the couple called time on their relationship, and Alex ended up finding love with Maegan Luxa, a 32-year-old chef from Melbourne. However, the mother-of-one split from Maegan earlier this year.

But not to fear, it appears mum-of-one Alex may have found someone during her time in Paradise, and it’s none other than one of Bachelorette star Ali Oetjen’s male suitor – Bill Goldsmith.

Alex and Bill were seen kissing in a park in Melbourne this week, reportedly just after the pair returned from Fiji, where they filmed Bachelor In Paradise.

They picked up a coffee and some groceries together, before sitting down in the park for a chat.

Insiders have claimed Alex and Bill “declared their love” for one another while they were in Paradise, according to the Daily Mail.

Bachelor exes

Meanwhile Bill’s ex Ali seems very much in love with her chosen winner Taite Radley. As is tradition for newly minted Bachelor couples, the pair have been filling their Instagram feeds with loved-up photos and professions of their happiness. 

And just this week, they were spotted walking into a cosmetic clinic in Adelaide together.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for Richie, who is yet to find love since he and Alex called time on their long-distance relationship.

We wonder if he’ll have the same luck as his ex whilst in Fiji – we’ll just have to find out when the new season airs next year.
