Whether they’re sharing a bowl of spaghetti in the nude or posing topless for a lad’s mag,  former Bachelor contestants Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon are normally inseparable. 

But the pair have spent their first Christmas Day apart. Megan took to Instagram to tell followers she would be spending the day alone camping in an attempt to escape the festive season. 

‘As many of you know I’m not a big Christmas fan (although I genuinely wish everyone a Merry time!) so I’m leaving today to go on a beach camping trip on my own, to read and write and dive and build fires and pretend I’m Bear Grylls,’ she wrote. 

‘Solitude in nature really breeds a tranquility in me unparalleled and I’m excited for that.

‘I won’t be in reception so will be having someone look after my Insta… be back soon for some New Years party times!

Later Tiffany told followers she was sad she wouldn’t get to spend Christmas Day with her girlfriend but understood her decision. 


‘She needs to do what she needs to do, and I’m slightly envious of her getting off the grid for a few days,’ she wrote. 

‘I am however, really looking forward to Christmas traditions of waffles and ice cream for breakfast and a game of Family Feud! 

‘Wishing Santa Clause safe and speedy travels delivering magic all over the world!’

When questioned further by fans Tiffany explained she’d made the decision not to join Megan because she had family commitments and loved Christmas too much, whereas her lady love is a bit of a grinch.
