You know that line from Love Actually where Colin Frissell is telling his mate that he’s ‘God of Sex’, but the reason he hasn’t found a girl is he’s “just on the wrong continent, that’s all.”
Well, if you swap the word ‘continent’ for ‘reality TV show’, that’s pretty much what happened to TV star Apollo Jackson.
Apollo, who made a name for himself as a contestant on Sophie Monk‘s season of The Bachelorette and went on to feature on Bachelor In Paradise, is now dating Love Island‘s Edyn ‘Mac’ Mackney.
Here is actual footage of our reality TV show worlds colliding:
Overnight the couple shared a romantic picture on Edyn’s Instagram showing the pair sippin’ on some delish cocktails together while casually confirming their relationship, explaining that they went on the wrong dating shows:
The post was accompanied by the caption: “Everyday is Magical with you @apollojacksonofficial May have gone on the wrong show but I found you and Delicious Vegan milkshakes eventually.”
I can honestly say I didn’t even know vegan milkshakes were a thing but, you know what, good for them. Normally I bond with people over a few glasses of red wine, but you do you.
Edyn followed the snap by sharing a video on her Instagram Stories showing Apollo doing a DJ set The Star casino on the Gold Coast:
Looks like they’re both as camera shy as the other – that is to say, not at all.
While the pair is yet to reveal how long they have been seeing each other for, there’s a very good chance they met while doing the rounds on the reality TV social scene.
Mac was previously linked to BIP‘s Sam Cochrane, before splitting in September. As for Apollo, he’s been connected with both Elora Murger and British model Simone Ormesher.Image: Instagram / [@edyndenise, @apollojacksonofficial]
