It's been just four weeks since Bachelor in Paradise couple Sam Cochrane and Tara Pavlovic ended their engagement, but single Sammy is on the rebound!

Yep, at the recent Splendour In The Grass festival an onlooker reveals Sam, 34, was getting cosy with a "blonde girl" before ranting about his ex to fellow party people.

"He admitted things started to go wrong with Tara as soon as they got back from Bachelor In Paradise," says NW's source.

"Things just weren't right between them and they started fighting a lot. Eventually Sam decided to end it after a huge row. He's sad it came to an end but he's ready to move forward."

Sam had a wild night with pals, including Elora Murger.

NW's spy caught the star getting cozy with a mystery woman at the festival: "She had long, peroxide blonde extensions, fake tan and wearing a ton of make-up - a completely different look to Tara," said the snitch.

They added: "It didn't look like they knew each other beforehand, I think they just met that night."

Look away, Tara!

But if that's not enough to upset his ex-fiancee, NW previously reported that newly single Sam might be headed for The Bachelorette mansion to try his luck with Ali Oetjen!

Sam announced his and Tara's break-up on Instagram in June. "Everything happens for a reason," he wrote at the time.

According to TV insiders, producers on the series were devastated to learn that Tara and Sam had called it quits and decided to reach out to Sam.

"They told him there's a spot waiting for him on Ali Oetjen's season as an intruder if he wants it," the source reveals.

"He never got a chance to see if there was a spark with Ali [in Paradise] because he was head over heels for Tara, but now he has one."

Whether or not Sam has agreed to sign on remains unconfirmed.
