Ciarran since has opened up about his decision to leave the competition.
"It was really hard for me to deal with it in that sort of environment where I can't just be with my family," he told 10 Daily of his discovery that his nan had passed away.
"I was super close to my nan. Every weekend I saw her, she took me to church. The guy I am today I owe a lot to what my nan did for me."
"I didn't want to be in that environment anymore," he continued. "It was difficult because everyone was backing Carlin as a frontrunner and I felt like I was in the lead. It was difficult to tell [Angie] that I didn't want to be there anymore, but obviously she said family always comes first.”
"At the same time, you can see from watching it that it was really hard leaving Angie and definitely hard for myself to come to that decision. Looking back on it I do feel like I made a mistake. It's a bit gutting to be fair.
He also revealed his hopes that Angie will reach out to him if things don’t work out with the winner.
"I haven't been in contact with her yet," he told The Kyle and Jackie O Show this morning. "I said to her when she wants to slide into my DMs then yeah if it doesn't work out for her on the show."
