Nile was linked with electrician and psychology student Brett Helling on Nine’s Married At First Sight last year, but they separated before final vows.

Helling later said the pair had “tunnel vision” during the series and realized their relationship would not last in the outside world.

“Booka and I were hanging out one day and we were just talking about life and all sorts of things. I think we both just realized it wasn’t something we wanted to pursue outside of the experience,” he said.

She was later romantically linked to tattooed musician Corey Freear after they were spotted holding hands in Perth.
