It's official, Bachelor In Paradise hunk Apollo Jackson is off the market. And it looks like he definitely has a thing for blondes.
The 26 year-old magician/Greek god has gone public with his new girlfriend, 22 year-old Edyn 'Mac' Mackney, who you may remember from last year's Love Island with the blonde bombshell confirming the news on her personal Instagram account.
Captioning two snaps of the two sharing a couple of drinks, the former Love Islander penned, "Everyday is Magical with you @apollojacksonofficial 🥰😜 May have gone on the wrong show but I found you and Delicious Vegan milkshakes eventually 😜🥤✨ #MacAttacked."

The two have been popping up on one another's Instagram accounts ever since and were also spotted packing on the PDA on the Gold Coast over the Australia Day long weekend.
Apollo even shared a video on his Insta story of his new girlfriend styling his hair "like a troll doll."
Both Mac and Apollo have spoken out about the qualities they look for in a prospective partner. Mac previously said on Love Island that she's looking for someone tall, driven and motivated and it seems like Apollo ticks all those boxes!
Speaking exclusively to Now To Love, Apollo revealed, "We met through doing the same radio interview and it started off just as friends but once we started hanging out more we just clicked. She's such a genuine kind hearted person, with a killer personality. We have so much fun together and we're always laughing. After a long time being single I'm loving having someone special to share life's wild adventures with."

When we caught up with Apollo last year, the Bachelor In Paradise star said he was looking for someone compassionate and spontaneous.
"Someone who is just positive and doesn't talk crap about other people. They love putting 100% in and love having fun!"
And seeing as Mac describes herself as genuine, down to earth, easy-going and "far too forgiving", it looks like these two could make it work.

This isn't the first Bachie boy Mac has been romantically linked to after she left the villa with Teddy in September last year looking very cosy at a Sea FM party.
Despite sharing a video to her Instagram story of Sam planting a kiss on her cheek, Mac made it clear that there wasn't a romance going on at the time.
"There was definitely one man who I had my eye on last night but it wasn't Sam, we are just friends," she told the Daily Mail at the time.
Meanwhile Apollo was caught in the ultimate Bachelor In Paradise love triangle last year when he had Elora Murger and Simone Ormsesher vying for his attention. Though he walked away with Simone to give it a shot, they simply couldn't go the distance.
"We gave it our best shot in the real world but it just didn't work out for us unfortunately. With her in Melbourne and I'm based in Sydney and the Gold Coast, it was just hard to align our schedules in between work," he told Now To Love.
"There was absolutely nothing negative, we're still friends but it just didn't turn to anything romantically."
