Gabby Allen has been doing well so far on her rookie season of The Challenge: Double Agents, flying under the radar with her first partner Lio Rush and doing well during the daily challenges with her new partner Devin Walker. During a few of the first episodes, fans saw Fessy Shafaat flirting with Gabby and many will be wondering about Gabby’s relationship status.
The 28-year-old rookie is actually in a relationship with Brandon Myers of the U.K.’s Ex on the Beach, and the two were already dating before Gabby left for filming. Gabby and Brandon were rumored to be seeing each other since earlier in 2020 but they only became Instagram official on August 9, a short time before Double Agents began filming.
Gabby & Brandon Met in Early 2020 But Since ‘Double Agents’ Filmed They’ve Been Very Present in Each Other’s Lives
In May 2020, The Sun reported that Gabby and Brandon had begun seeing each other after meeting earlier in the year. The outlet reported that a source told them, “It’s really early days but they really like each other. They were introduced through friends in January and have been seeing each other since then.”
At the time, the couple denied that they were dating, with Gabby saying, “We’ve known each other for a long time. He’s the loveliest person and a really good friend of mine, but that’s all it is. Someone must have seen him comment on a picture on my social media, and automatically assumed he’s my boyfriend,” The Tab reported.
The two went official in August and since Double Agents filming wrapped the two have shared a lot of photos together and now appear to be living together in Dubai. On her birthday, she captioned a picture of them kissing, “Counting my blessings and you’re pretty much all 29 of them!” A few days later, on Valentine’s day, she said, “don’t care if it sounds sad, every day is Valentine’s Day with you.. Thanks for being so fit but more importantly my best friend..”
Brandon is a model as well as the director of luxury holiday company Inside Lifestyle, The Tab wrote. He’s also the owner of the clothing brand UNLVD.
Gabby Is a U.K. Competitor Coming On ‘The Challenge’ From ‘Celebrity Big Brother U.K.’ & ‘Love Island’
Gabby, who hails from Liverpool, first appeared on reality TV on the U.K.’s third season of Love Island in 2017, which was the same season as past Challenge competitors Theo Campbell and Georgia Harrison. During her time on Love Island, Gabby coupled up with Marcel Somerville, known in the U.K. for being a member of hip hop group Blazing Squad. Gabby and Marcel actually made it to the final on the show and finished fourth out of the four couples remaining, the Mirror reported.
Their relationship didn’t last, however, and the couple split after about 10 months of dating when Marcel cheated on Gabby while the two were on a vacation in Mexico, Cosmopolitan reported. A short time later, Gabby appeared on Celebrity Big Brother U.K. and also made it to the end of the show but placed sixth out of the six remaining house guests.
Outside of reality TV, Allen works as a fitness model and personal trainer and has a background in dance.
