Coming into the show in a relationship, Tully became intimate with fellow contestant Drew (whose real name was Anthony, because let’s make this more confusing, shall we?), therefore cheating on her then-longterm girlfriend Tahlia Farrant.
She was immediately labelled as the ‘bad girl’, and soon evicted from the house a whole six weeks before Drew. She was forced to deal with the public backlash alone.
Now, nearly five years later, she’s ready to talk about it.
“I came home to an empty house and I had nothing,” she told the 2013 winner of her season, Tim Dormer, on Popsugar’s podcast – Popcast.
“My partner had left me, taken most of the furniture, taken our dog,” she said.
The 30-year-old model and social media influencer admits that she should have broken up with her girlfriend before entering the Big Brother house and that they had been having issues in the lead up to filming.
“Something that I have never really spoken about publicly, just purely out of – funnily enough, respect for my ex is that we weren’t in a good place prior to the show,” she said to Tim.
Instead, Tully revealed that her and Tahlia “weren’t in a good place prior to the show,” and had broken up briefly a month earlier.
“I probably should have had the balls to end it before I went in… I just didn’t,” she said.
“The music sounds better with you…” To my little Cheen, Happy Bloody Birthday! There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t feel thankful to have you in my life. When we first met, you opened my eyes to the small pleasures in life….you made me stop and smell the roses, get out of my own head, take my shoes off. You have continued to open my mind and eyes to the world around me whilst simultaneously keeping me grounded and I am in awe of the amazing person you have become. You are LIGHT YEARS ahead of me. Happy Birthday @tahliafarrant, I hope your day is filled with great surf, Vegemite on toast and all the Luna kisses in the world. ????✨ (And yes, I may have posted this bang on 12 o’clock. You know I like to be organised.)
