James ‘Harry’ Harris won over Elly and Becky Miles’ hearts on The Bachelorette, but you might have recognised his face from somewhere else …
The 35-year-old starred on Channel 7’s House Rules in 2017, with his then-partner Kate Whiting.
Harry and Kate share a five-year-old son Xavier together, but they called time on their relationship in 2018, after nine years together.
On House Rules, the couple made it all the way to the grand final, however missed out on the winning prize of $200,000 to Aaron and Daniella Winter.
At the time of their split, Kate said the couple – who were known for having fiery arguments on the show – would remain “great friends” and now co-parent Xavier who is their “number one priority”.
“It is with great sadness we share that Harry and I are no longer together,” Kate wrote on Instagram.
“Over the last few months we have been making this transition process as smooth as possible for our little man,” Kate continued.
“We are both committed to co-parenting Xave, with his wellbeing as our number one priority.”
She also told Adelaide’s The Advertiser: “We’ve been working on our relationship for a while – it’s not something we gave up on. We just drifted apart. That happens sometimes I think, especially when you get together at such a young age.”
Harry made a great impression on the premiere of The Bachelorette on Wednesday night.
With his eyes set on Elly Miles, the contestant had the opportunity to choose another man to come on a double-date with him and the sisters.
In a strategic move, he chose New Zealand contestant Shannon, who was interested in Elly’s sister Becky.
