According to a report on the Daily Mail, Matty J only became The Bachelor to boost his "image," asking his ex Nathalie Darcas to reunite once he was done filming.

Their insider claims the 30-year-old deliberately broke things off with bikini model Nathalie Darcas so he could gain a better public profile.

"He asked Nat to wait for him and they'd get back together after the show," their source said. "He told her it would help both of their images."

Matty J and Nathalie dated briefly just months after he was dumped by Georgia Love on The Bachelorette last year. They broke up not long after, something he has always remained tight lipped about.

The 6ft 1 hottie has also confirmed he found love on the show, so the chances that he'll get back with his ex are looking P-R-E-T-T-Y slim.

Only two hours left until final episode of The Bachelor starts, on Channel 10. Woo!
