"On the way back, her parents wanted something from Woollies so we stopped in the shops and the video was taken. It looks like we're bloody going back to our own apartment. But we're definitely not together. Just friends," he told Fairfax about the photos shared on Facebook.
Ashley and Ryan's potential new relationship is just the latest drama in a bumpy run for the pair on the experimental program. Ryan's 'wife' Davina was caught engaging in a secret relationship with fellow Dean Wells last week, and openly told Ryan she wasn't interested in him. Meanwhile, Ashley had become frustrated with her 'husband' Troy after his 'quirky' habits and 'annoying' behaviour.
However, Ryan insists he is still single after the show, which was filmed a few months ago.
"I think out of the rumours, the only person I'm not dating is my wife. I'm dating the rest of Australia apparently when really I'm going to bed, lonely as buggery."
