Speaking to MailOnline Australia when he left the villa, Jaxon said: “Everything was deep and meaningful when we were conversing and there wasn't really that laughter, there wasn't really that fun.

“I didn't feel like it was a very strong relationship.”

After being confronted by Shelby who called him “fake” after hearing from the boys he wasn’t sure about their coupling, Jaxon explained he didn't know what he was doing in the villa.

He added: “My emotions played on me a lot in the villa. 

“I didn't say anything bad, I just said ‘I’m not sure what I'm doing in the villa, I don't know if this was the right decision, I don't know if this person's right for me’.”

Jaxon explained: “Every moment that I spent with Shelby was fantastic, but my emotions when I was away were different.

He continued: “It was little things. I would think, 'what's happening, what's going on?' I was very confused and I wasn't honest.' 

Jaxon and Shelby eventually had a showdown in the villa, when she confronted him about his feelings, branding him “fake”.

He was booted from the villa the following day.
