The Bridge Australia 2022 has just been released, and fans are already hooked! And it seems the series might be a success in more ways than one!

Of course, the show’s premise is about constructing a physical bridge; however, it wasn’t the only thing being built, with two contestants forming a love match!

As reported in episode 208 of the So Dramatic! podcast, an insider has revealed that model Madeline “Maddie” Cowe and account manager Elliot Isles are now dating!

“I was sitting in the pub the other night and saw them both mingling and kissing,” an insider dished to So Dramatic!.

“They then left holding hands, kissing and giggling like new lovers.” Cute!

According to the spy, Elliot is well known around Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and “many people know he has a new girlfriend”.

Elliot Isles May Have Had a Girlfriend Before Filming

According to an additional source, Elliot reportedly had a girlfriend before he left to film The Bridge in Tasmania.

“He broke up with his girlfriend right before going on the show, so it looks like he’s moved on pretty quickly!” the spy said.

We’ve dug into his Insta, and there’s no trace of his former flame; however, there is a pic of him and Maddie on the set of The Bridge.

“Maddie, pour a bottle of water on me, so it looks like I’ve been sweating out there,” he captioned the post.

As for Maddie’s account, she posted a photo of her and Elliot in a rowboat on the river.

“Blood, sweat and laughs,” she penned. “Who knew such a hard task could lead to meeting so many great people 🪚💛.”

“Meeting so many great people”, hey?! Maybe one great person, perhaps?!

Elliot also took the opportunity to comment with an inside joke.

“Untangling rope > untangling headphones,” he wrote. And TBF, both sound pretty awful to us!
