So far this season's villain Nichole Wood, Renee Barrett, Rachael Arahill, Jessica Brody, Emma Roche and Helena Sauzier have all been approached for the spin-off, which will commence filming later this year.
Last season’s favourites Paddy Collier, Bill Goldsmith— who was recently snapped partying with this year's Bachie star Jessica— and Brittney Weldon have also reportedly already signed on the dotted line for the next season.
The juicy gossip comes after another source shockingly revealed to New Idea that frontrunner Elly Miles has a secret past with Matt. Apparently, the pair not only crossed paths before she signed on to the show, but they also hooked up.
“Most of the girls knew Elly had a history with Matt and it caused a lot of tension in the house,” the insider claimed.
After the contestants caught on, the source claimed they confronted the 24-year-old about her history with the astrophysicist, however, she was adamant the rumours weren't true.
“They eventually confronted her about it, and she denied the rumours, but everyone knew it had happened and started to despise her for having an unfair advantage. The whole thing really upset her.”
From the moment Matt and Elly locked eyes, it was clear there was already a spark. Not only did she win him over on the first night while toasting marshmallows by a fire, but in a Bachie first, she was gifted the Golden Ticket— an invitation back to Matt's hometown for a single date.
"I am really enjoying getting to know you and I want that to continue because I feel like there could be something special here," the devilishly handsome Bachie told the bubbly blonde on the first night. "You give me butterflies and at the same time, you make me feel very relaxed. I feel like we've known each other for a long time. It would be my pleasure if you take the golden ticket and accept this rose."
"I was in a 5-year relationship but we grew apart. It's been a long time since I felt that way," Elly told Matt. "But I've never met anyone quite like you."
Matt replied: "I'm pleased, delighted! I've had an enormous smile on my face the moment I saw you."
