Former Love Island contestant Sinead Hegarty linked to Caroline Flack's ex


By John Toner

An ex-Love Island hopeful from Tyrone has been romantically linked to the former fiance of the show's presenter Caroline Flack.

The Apprentice 2017 contestant Andrew Brady, who was engaged to Flack, appears to have moved on after his split as he cosied up to Castlederg woman Sinead Hegarty.

The 28-year-old and Caroline (39) called off their engagement six months ago with him fleeing to Australia shortly afterwards.

However, it seems it hasn't taken long for the former Celebrity Big Brother contestant to move on as he posted snaps of himself cuddling up to fashion and beauty influencer Sinead on his Instagram.

Sinead, who lives down under, appeared on the 2016 series of ITV's Love Island. The 26-year-old missed out on staying in the villa after she failed to impress a panel of male contestants.

Wearing a red one-piece swimsuit, Sinead described herself as "great banter" to the five blindfolded contestants who made the decision whether she - or one of the other glamorous contestants - would get to stay on Love Island, but it was not enough to do the trick.

She and Andrew have made no secret of their Australian rendezvous as they partied at Coogee Beach, Sydney, sharing multiple videos with their arms wrapped around each other.

The social media influencer shared a picture with her 51,500 Instagram followers explaining how the two met with the caption: "Hahah someone popped into my DMs and said me and @itsandrewbrady should meet up in Bondi because we have the same bants and here we are. Haha I love Instagram #SundaySesh."

The stunning blonde has been shedding weight under a new fitness regime in Australia and has been posting regular updates of her progress and lifestyle tips.

She also promotes a range of health and beauty products via her Instagram account including vitamins and protein shakes.

Meanwhile, Brady's ex Caroline has also been very publicly moving on from their three-month engagement after she was reportedly spotted getting intimate with Strictly Come Dancing pro AJ Pritchard (24) at the National Television Awards.

Despite the 15-year age gap, a source claimed that AJ and the Love Island host were "getting cosy" after the awards ceremony and "didn't seem to care" who was looking.

Caroline has enjoyed romance with younger men before, famously dating One Direction's Harry Styles when she was 32 and he was just 17.
