The professional ballroom dancer, 23, has been involved in a love triangle with Maura and Francesca for the last few days - and last night finally opted to move on with Maura.

He pulled the Irish grid girl, 28, aside for a chat on the terrace to let her know he'd chosen her, and the pair shared a snog.
