Bachelor In Paradise star Niranga Amarasinghe reveals he secretly dated The Bachelor’s Charley Bond

He was left unlucky-in-love during both The Bachelorette and Bachelor In Paradise.

But Niranga Amarasinghe claims he was secretly dating a Bachelor star this year —25-year-old P.E teacher Charley Bond.

They were first spotted in public together while Charley appeared on Locky Gilbert’s Bachelor season in August, but had never confirmed their relationship status.

In an interview with the So Dramatic! podcast, the 29-year-old divulged the duo became an item after starting off as friends. 

‘We had a bit of a romantic connection for a while there,’ he said. ‘Then yeah, it fizzled out and now we’re really good friends, so no hard feelings.’

When pressed by show host Megan Pustetto about whether they were just ‘hooking up’ or actually dating, Niranga explained they were doing ‘a bit of both’.

‘It was a bit of both – hooking up, dating, seeing where each other’s at,’ the former Bachelor In Paradise star claimed.

‘She’s a really nice girl. She is amazing, but it just wasn’t meant to be. It just wasn’t the right timing and now we’re amazing friends, and that’s how we’re going to stay.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Charley Bond for comment.

Niranga then detailed his hope in finding the right girl, especially with him turning 30 in January. 

‘I haven’t found the right one yet,’ the aircraft engineer said. ‘I’m still out there looking and I’ve become quite close to some of the girls obviously on this year’s season and last year’s season, but nothing romantic.

‘It’s not always about getting attention, it’s actually about finding that spark of that connection and unfortunately I haven’t found it yet but hopefully she’s just around the corner. I’m 30 [years old] next January so fingers crossed.’

Niranga’s confession follows him stripping down to his birthday suit for Halloween.

He bared all on Instagram Stories in October as he stripped nude for a mirror selfie, while covering his face behind a creepy clown mask. 

Angling his body so as to obscure his groin from view, Niranga wrote ‘Happy Halloween’ in the caption – and completed his post with a pumpkin, ghost and sassy man emoji.
