We thought someone was messing with us when we heard The Bachelor’s Keira Maguire was hooking up with Michael Turnbull – and, according to Keira, someone was. Michael!

After Michael posted a picture of the former Bachie stars together at an event, dating rumours were unstoppable, until Keira decided she needed to put a stop to them, telling NW, “Clearly it’s not true.”

“As if – let’s just think about the situation for a second. I would not date him,” she says. “I’m not desperate – let’s just face it.”

Fun times and lots of laughs @keiramaguire at the My Face My Body awards #mfmbawardsau #friends

So what’s the go with that pic then?

“I saw him at an event and he came up to say hi. Before I could walk away with my friend Kris, he grabbed me and said, ‘Let’s get a photo!’. I mean, what am I going to say? No?” she laughs.

“If you actually look at that photo I’m, like, leaning away. He’s literally on an angle it looks like he’s about to topple over. Anyway, I specifically asked him to please not post that photo and he said ‘As if I will.’”

“Next thing I know, I get a Google Alert of an article that says I’m dating him – AND Michael’s posted the photo on Instagram. So I go to look at his Instagram and I’m blocked! Like, are you kidding me dude.”

Keira says she’s tried to ignore it, but feels she needs to address the rumours. “It’s ruining my chances with any other guy,” she says.

So there you have it ladies and gents. Both Keira and Michael are single – if you’re keen!
