“A tip for anyone waiting on PCR results. If you go to your myGov account, click on the Covid-19 dashboard and scroll down to Recent Covid-19 tests.

“Your results are often there 12-24 hours before you get a text,” he wrote online.

While he was initially coupled up with Samantha Harvey, he ended up in a love triangle with another bride, Coco Stedman.

Speaking to TV Week about his time on the show, Cameron, who moved to Queensland after filming, said he saw the show’s counsellor and psychologist to deal with the trolling.

"It's not easy to go through," he said.

“Whether you're portrayed as good or bad, you're always going to have people who hate on you."
