Abbie Chatfield’s manager bizarrely claims she ISN’T on Bachelor in Paradise this season – despite being pictured flying back from Fiji and promoting the show on Instagram
Abbie Chatfield will not be appearing on Bachelor in Paradise this season, her manager has bizarrely claimed, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
Breakfast radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson revealed on air on Wednesday that Abbie’s agent had told KIIS FM producers his client would not be taking part in the series.
‘Abbie’s manager has told our producers off-the-air that Abbie is not on the show,’ Jackie said while interviewing Bachelor in Paradise contestant Timm Hanly. ‘And as far as they know they’re just using her for promos, but she’s not in it.’

A puzzled Timm replied: ‘I’m pretty sure I was there and I’m pretty sure I saw Abbie there… I don’t know if I was imagining things or not, but I’m sure I saw her there.’
Host Kyle Sandilands then speculated that Abbie might not have told her manager she had filmed the show, which was filmed in November and December last year.
‘Maybe Abbie’s made a side-deal? Maybe her manager didn’t even know she went to the island?’ he said.
‘As far as they know they’re just using her for promos but she’s not in it:’ The strange claims came to light during contestant Timm Hanly’s (pictured) interview with The Kyle And Jackie O Show on Wednesday
‘Just keep all the coin for herself!’ laughed Timm.
Abbie has been in several trailers for the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise, including one which shows her striding confidently into the Mango Bay resort.
‘I came here for Ciarran,’ Abbie says while sashaying through the villa.

‘He’s hot and he’s such a naughty boy. He’s mine… I’m going to get him!’ she adds.
She is also listed on Channel 10’s official Bachelor in Paradise website as a contestant this season.
Furthermore, Abbie has spoken extensively to the media about her upcoming appearance on the show.

Last month, she admitted she was worried about being portrayed as a ‘sexy villain’ on Paradise this year.
‘I already am worried about how the edits are going to go,’ she told New Idea.
‘I think when you’re on TV, you’re a one-dimensional character. And my character [on The Bachelor last year] was overtly sexual and confident, and to a lot of people that equals b***h,’ she added.

If further proof is needed, Abbie was pictured catching a flight to Fiji from Brisbane Airport on November 3 ahead of filming the show.
On November 13, she was pictured returning to Brisbane looking rather downcast, which suggests she was sent home early in the series.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 and Abbie’s manager for comment.
