What’s the best way to get over a breakup? Why throw yourself into a block of Cadbury TopDeck of course.
And the second best? Focus on your career.
Just two days later, it’s been announced the 28-year-old has landed a media gig that could be just the start of a brand new career.
The show – hosted by James Kerley and broadcast daily – is an interactive quiz that allows viewers to answer questions in an attempt to win cash.
Slipping into the co-hosting role, Tara – who entered Matty J’s season of The Bachelor as a nanny – will be following in her mum Debbie Newsome’s footsteps. Debbie co-hosted dating show Perfect Match in the 1980s.
At this stage, it appears to be a one-off gig, but who knows what it may turn into.
On Saturday, Tara and Sam confirmed they had ended their engagement. The pair met in Fiji in late last year and were one of the successful couples to come out of Australia’s first season of Bachelor in Paradise.
During the show’s finale, Sam surprised everyone by getting down on one knee and proposing.
Tara wanted fans to know that was “100 per cent real” in her statement confirming the breakup on Instagram.
“We both put our best efforts in to make it work in the real world but unfortunately for different reasons it didn’t work out,” she wrote.
“I did love Sam very much and I wish him nothing but the best. Everything happens for a reason and I’m sure this will make more sense down the track.”
The reality star has since, as of Monday evening, deactivated her Instagram account.
Sam, meanwhile, said that the experience had taught him he could fall deeply in love, and he hoped to again.
This message goes out to all the beautiful people who shared with me such an amazing journey. The fairytale that I took part in was deep and surreal. My proposal was meant to be forever but life sometimes takes you away from the dream and you wake up. So…deep breath…. this has come to an end. I loved Tara with my whole heart and those two people in Fiji fell completely. It’s hard writing this thinking back to those moments. Your joy in our story and the engagement meant so much and I can assure you it is the saddest thing for me to come to terms with. Watching something you valued fall apart and what you love follow a different path is one of the most difficult things. My heart feels broken and obviously having it play out in public adds so many difficult dimensions. I forgot about the cameras in Fiji and I simply fell in love. The truth is difficult but the path ahead will show the way. Obviously there has been speculation for some time but I needed to know for sure before making anything public. That has been hard. Our time together will always hold a beautiful and difficult place in my heart and I have to believe that everything happens for a reason. Thank you everyone for the beautiful support and being on this journey. In a time that was mostly in hiding your words provided magic. I look forward to the future. I got to see that love is real and powerful…. and it is. I’ll find it again. ❤️✨????????????
