She added that she was told filming would have to stop and ‘people would lose their jobs’ if they told his other contestants. 

‘They also told us we couldn’t tell the other girls of our connection because it would mean the whole show would have to stop filming and people would lose their jobs,’ she said.    

Meanwhile Andrew, 30, added that he and Jess had a ‘solid love story’ that wasn’t portrayed accurately on the show.

‘We had a solid love story and they have spun it the other way,’ he said.

Jess sweetly wrote that she found her ‘true love’ on the show. 

‘Diving in head first on reality tv certainly brings out the best and worst in anyone. I never thought I’d meet my true love in such a bizarre setting, but how lucky am I to experience so much emotion and connection with my person in such a short period of time.’

She added in part of her post: ‘Andrew you have my whole heart. Seven months on and I can finally let the world know that I have found my penguin. Now to enjoy the experience for what it was meant for. I love you.’

She finished: ‘P.S despite what you saw on camera, he said it first,’ alongside a wink emoji.
