Bachelor in Paradise

The person who came between Jarrod Woodgate and Keira Maguire

The BiP lovebirds ended their romance just weeks ago.

Jarrod Woodgate sensationally dumped Keira Maguire by text and moved out of their Melbourne love nest last month.

Now Woman's Day has learned there was someone waiting in the wings to support him – his close friend, Chris Kenny.

Jarrod and his friend Chris.

Now, sources are telling Woman's Day that Jarrod's friendship with Chris was just one of the many reasons for the breakdown of his romance with his Bachelor In Paradise co-star.
