According to this report, professional model Paul had a secret girlfriend who he 'promised could be together again after the show had finished' and ultimately caused his romance with Laura, 30, to end upon the Irish star discovering the truth.

Laura and Paul, who came second to Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer, split a matter of weeks after leaving the villa, with Laura at the time citing their busy schedules preventing their relationship from developing- with Paul flying off to New York (where the supposed girlfriend lives) for work and Burning Man festival.

The tabloid is now reporting that Laura was clueless about the 'other' woman and called things off as soon as she found out.
