We first met the soccer player turned gym manager, 27, on the red carpet when he tried to impress Ali with his ball skills before heading into the mansion and trying to make the boys feel uncomfortable with his chauvinistic behaviour.
Things reached boiling point when Paddy confronted 23-year-old Nathan Favro for "mocking him" behind his back (see the video below). Resort director Damien Rider had to then step in and ask Paddy to be more respectful towards Ali. Time will only tell if he takes the advice!
Despite stirring the pot, Paddy is sure he is ready to find the girl of his dreams.
"I think in the past, I’ve been scared of commitment. I want to be able to overcome that barrier and whether that’s with Ali, time will tell," he says.
