Gogglebox Australia: Jad confirms the truth about his relationship with The Bachelor's Bella Varelis

Don't stress ladies, the lovable Goggleboxer is still on the market!

There's no doubt about it, Gogglebox Australia's Jad Nehmetallah is certainly no stranger rumours about his love life.

And the latest rumour is that the couch mate of Matty and Sarah Marie is now dating Bachelor contestant, Bella Varelis, who is currently appearing on the current series of the dating show. 

While Bella's one of the front-runners on the show, she's been spotted with several different men over the last few weeks. 

According to an Australian publication, Jad was spotted with the 25-year-old at his cafe The Picnic Burwood. 

The two were snapped together, smiling and laughing. 

Both Jad and Bella appear to have mutual friends, too.

Speaking to LifeStyle, Jad reveals he and the reality TV star are merely friends.

"Bella and I have known each other for a while... And even though she's a beautiful girl, we're just mates."

Plus, before anyone gets too ahead of themselves, it appears our Goggleboxer actually has his sights set on an international star - none other than model Emily Ratajkowski.

Taking to his Instagram, the 34-year-old subtly responded to the rumours, by photoshopping his head onto two photos alongside the beauty.

"The rumours are true," he simply captioned both edited snaps.

Sadly, we have to report that Emily is actually already a married woman - having tied the knot with US actor Sebastian Bear-McClard back in 2018.

This isn't the first rumour circulating about Jad and his romantic life.

Just last month the 34-year-old opened up to LifeStyle after he was tipped to star on the next season of The Bachelor.  

At the time, Jad was quick to shut down the idea that he will be following in the steps of Locky Gilbert.

"It's insane how many people online and in person have been mentioning it," he admitted.

"I am interested in finding love and starting a family but I'm having way too much fun with Matty and Sarah Marie on the couch on Gogglebox to do anything else."

"And Malik’s not ready to take over my seat just yet, so I’ll be holding onto it for as long as I can!” he added.

In the past, Jad's revealed he had always expected he would have been a married man by this stage in his life. 

"I always pictured myself married by now with two to three kids," he said on his 34th birthday. "I mean, I look young, which is half the problem, especially when you’re trying to settle down!"

Regardless, Jad is still believed to be a single man.

For now we can watch him on Gogglebox Australia every Wednesday - first on Foxtel.
