Brittany Hockley and Timm Hanly left Bachelor in Paradise together in what appeared to be the start of a relationship in the real world together. But alas, things didn’t work out as fans hoped.

In a chat with Ten, Brittany revealed that Timm called her his “ride or die” on numerous occasions, but once they left the show things changed.

“The second he got outside… he was not the person I had just spent the last month with… He was just a different human and… I was just so disappointed, so exasperated by the whole thing,” the 32-year-old star of Nick Cummins’ season of The Bachelor revealed.

“I checked in on him a lot, I’m big on mental health, I wanted to make sure he’s okay and I said let’s stay friends and in contact. I never heard from him again.

“He ghosted me. Blocked me on everything. I just thought this speaks volumes, I’m still trying to look out for you and you can’t even give me the time of day.”

Fans first suspected that Timm and Britt ended things after Daily Mail Australia snapped a series of photos of Timm and a mystery brunette woman kissing and getting cosy in Melbourne. Subtle, right?

What’s more, neither Britt nor Timm follow the other on Instagram, but both follow their Paradise cast-mates. 

There are no photos on Timm’s Instagram account that feature Britt, whilst Britt’s Instagram grid shows just the one photo of the couple and the tone doesn’t convince us they’re still together.

However, there were some signs that the couple had made things work in the outside world during their time on BIP.

In a post to fan Instagram account Bachie Funny, an eagle-eyed fan spotted Timm and Britt looking all loved-up in Melbourne.

“Hey just so you know I walked past Timm and Brittany walking down Chapel Street in Melbourne the other night (pre second round of iso lockdown) looking very cuddly,” the fan messaged the account administrator,” adding that it “looked like they were going out for date night.”

Brittany also dropped a huge clue that she and Timm were still an item in her Instagram Stories from the night of the BIP premiere.

In one snap, Brittany shared a photo of two flower arrangements – one of red roses (synonymous with the Bachelor franchise) and another vase of bright yellow sunflowers.

Sunflowers, as fans of the series know, are Timm’s favourite flavours and he famously gifted Angie Kent an enormous bouquet when he first arrived at the Bachelorette mansion. He even has the bloom tattooed on his hand, so it was highly possible that the bouquet was a gift for Britt from her BIP love interest.

“What a night. With everything happening in the world right now, was nice to forget for a hot second and just have a good old belly laugh. Lucky to have such great people in my life,” she captioned alongside a love heart.

Brittany watched the season premiere alongside friends including Paradise co-star Helena Sauzier and 2017 Bachelor winner Laura Byrne and shared a candid video once the episode finished on her stories.

Speaking to the camera, the bunch of sunflowers were within the shot and the brunette beauty even took a moment to laugh as she smelled the flowers.

“I actually thoroughly enjoyed watching that, whether I say that as the show continues, we’ll see but for now… have fun!” Britt teased, before adding that the show “gets better.”

Timm was instantly taken with Brittany when she walked through the doors of Paradise, but Brittany admitted that the long-haired larrikin was “in no way” her type and that she’d never dated anyone like him before.

However, after the first date of the season, there was some undeniable chemistry there when the two shared a sweet dance together.

“I feel like Timm and I did have a moment whilst we were dancing,” Brittany confessed.

“I think that happens when you can get a little bit close with somebody and you’re having a little bit of fun. I think there was something there that maybe I didn’t know was there.”

Britt added: “I definitely want to know more about Timm and spend more time with Timm after tonight, 100 per cent. There’s something quite intriguing about him – I can’t put my finger on it but I definitely want to know more.”

Brittany originally turned down the opportunity to star on Bachelor in Paradise and admitted that she “said no right up until the last minute you could possibly say yes.” 

However, her sister Sheri managed to convince Britt to give the show a go for a second shot at love and to show the Australian public her true self.

“I think I felt like my personality was a little bit subdued on The Bachelor, I don’t think people really got to see who I was so Sheri told me it was time to A: go and try to fall in love again because there’s 10 times more chance of that happening, and B: go and enjoy myself and try and show people who I am.”
