Bachelor In Paradise’s last remaining couple, Megan Marx and Jake Ellis have confirmed they are back together after months apart.
Megan took to Instagram to confirm the news, sharing a photo of the pair, who split back in August, and writing a lengthy post about their reconciliation and why they split in the first place.
The full post reads:
I have a pile of love letters in the drawer next to my bed. They’re all from Jake and most of them I didn’t deserve. I spent the course of our relationship with one foot in and one foot out, and the letters are pleas to remind me what we had, what I’d be giving up if I ran.
I did run though, eventually.
I went to Bali and intrastate and dated bitter frustration and remorse.
I came home nearly two months later to my apartment filled with roses, fairylights, a home-cooked meal, a playlist of all my favourite music and, a love letter. I’m not saying that I didn’t have some reasons to run, because relationships aren’t perfect, but I am saying that I found someone that took responsibility, fought relentlessly for me, and has taken time to know me, and love me. I said in Paradise that I couldn’t imagine my life without you @jakeellis86and that hasn’t changed. You’re my best friend and my home.
I love you. Onwards and upwards 💕 You sexy hunk of a man.
When news of their split broke, fans speculated that they had orchestrated their split in order to make a return to Fiji for the second season of Bachelor In Paradise – where they could fall in love all over again for the cameras.
Their reunion makes Megan and Jake the only couple from the first season of Bachelor In Paradise to remain together, with Jarrod Wootgate and Keira Maguire, Tara Pavlovic and Sam Cochrane, and Ali Oetjen and Grant Kemp all calling it quits.
