Spencer Matthews shocked as Bachelor winner snogs TOWIE hunk
Mere days ago, viewers of The Bachelor saw smitten Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews choose Khloe Evans to be his girlfriend.
But their romance is apparently already over, as a shocked Spencer discovered that his new lady was pictured kissing TOWIE star Tom Pearce less than a week after filming wrapped up on the Channel 5 show.
A friend of Spencer's told the MailOnline: “Spencer was looking forward to getting to know Khloe properly away from the cameras once they got back to Britain.
“However, when he saw photos of her all over Tom Pearce on the internet literally days after the wrap party, he was pretty shocked and surprised to say the least.”
The friend added: “The fact she couldn't remain faithful to him less than a week after the show ended convinced Spencer there was no future together.”
Eligible bachelor Spencer chose 21-year-old Khloe out of 25 potential romantic interests and although the finale of this year's series was only just broadcast, filming actually wrapped in mid-July.
The cast were sworn to secrecy about the outcome until now, but needless to say the 23-year-old reality star was not impressed when photos surfaced of Khloe at celeb hotspot Aura nightclub in London kissing another man.
She met The Only Way Is Essex hunk just days after returning to the UK from the Bahamas where The Bachelor was set.
Spencer remained quiet when the pictures went public, but Khloe hasn’t wasted anytime badmouthing the posh reality star.
She said this week: “I don’t want anything to do with Spencer now - the show’s finished and that’s it. I’m single.
“I’m not interested in having a relationship with him. I’m just going to get on with my life. It was unbelievable to win, it felt amazing. But now we’re back to reality it doesn’t feel great.”
Khloe’s relationship status is unsurprising given the turn of events, but Spencer has been more tactful about their non-existent relationship, admitting he hadn't seen The Bachelor winner since filming finished six weeks ago.
He told ITN: “It's important, I think, to spend time with someone off-camera as well. Have some proper days, go out just the two of you. You know, when you're not surrounded by cameras and sound men.
“It's difficult to develop a proper relationship and be intimate when you are surrounded by people.”
Before starring on the Channel 5 series, Khloe had sold her story about her night with Manchester City footballer Mario Balotelli, and although Spencer had decided to overlook the kiss and tell, reportedly her indiscretion with Tom Pearce was the last straw.
Spencer has not come away from the series with an unblemished reputation either as the former broker has been plagued with rumours that The Bachelor is entirely set-up, with many suggesting he is actually dating his MIC co-star Louise Thompson.
