But both appearing on soon-to-air show Bachelor In Paradise has apparently brought Tara Pavlovic and Davey Lloyd together - with the alleged couple all but confirming it with a selfie on Instagram.'Special friends,' the brunette beauty captioned a particularly sweet snap of the duo pulling funny faces.
This isn't the first time they've been seen together since filming wrapped on the new Network Ten series.
