Bachelor in Paradise star Brittany Hockley takes aim at ex Timm Hanly after their short-lived romance
They both left Bachelor in Paradise hellbent on giving their relationship a go, but Brittany Hockley and Timm Hanly’s romance was short-lived.
On Thursday, as 2020 drew to a close, Brittany, 32, took aim at her former flame.
Sharing a photograph of herself and Timm, Brittany wrote: ‘First and only picture I’ve shared and only because so many of you asked.’

Clearly taking a shot at Timm, she continued: ‘That part of my life is a distant memory that I’d rather forget.’
The couple were a hot item on Bachelor In Paradise, only to quickly announce their breakup after leaving together on the show.
Speaking on her podcast Life Uncut in August, Brittany said she was ‘gobsmacked’ at how much Timm changed after filming the reality series.

‘(He) in no way wanted to be in a relationship with anyone,’ she recalled.
Brittany admitted that after leaving Paradise the couple only saw each other once, for five days, and they argued when he didn’t come home one night.
‘He just didn’t come home one night. I didn’t know where he was. He didn’t contact me. The next day we just had this really big argument,’ she recalled.

Brittany ended up in tears following the argument, because she had waited eight years to find someone and was bitterly disappointed.
It led her to ending things because Timm was ‘not the person (she) signed up for’.
‘There’s some things that should stay between two people. But to sum it up, Timm was a very different person outside of Paradise,’ she told her co-host Laura Byrne.

‘I was so gobsmacked at the person he became the second we walked out of those doors. It was like I was talking to a different person.’

‘I just never heard from him again until the show started,’ Brittany said, explaining she was ‘ghosted hard’ by the tattooed star.
‘I didn’t hear from him until recently. He said he didn’t know how to handle anything. He said he didn’t know how to handle it [their relationship].
‘He just said [the fame, being on the two shows] all got too much. He has since apologised and said he never wanted to hurt me.’
