Tonight, on an explosive episode of Bachelor In Paradise, sparks failed to fly between Helena and Jake, and Brittney and Jamie on their single dates, before a surprise arrival from Ciarran’s ex, Renee Barrett, sent Paradise into chaos.
On Jake and Helena’s date, Helena deflected any serious questions which Jake found frustrating. When talking about his prior relationship with ex-Paradise single Megan Marx, Jake explained that his heart had been broken. As he tried to convince Helena that he had closed the Megan chapter of his life, Helena felt there was still unfinished business between the pair.
Jamie chose Brittney for a date, organising some romantic cocktails by the sea. As Brittney dropped subtle hints that she was keen for a kiss, Jamie kept her firmly in the friend zone.
As the girls came together for a pre-banquet chat, Renee made her highly anticipated entrance.
At dinner, things started to click into place and Renee soon realised that Ciarran and Jess were more than just friends. Ciarran took it upon himself to address the group and publicly apologise for cheating on Renee, which she took with a grain of salt.
As the questions rolled in from the others, Ciarran lost his patience and stormed out.
