NW - - Hot Shots -

Uh-oh! When Aus­tralia’s for­mer Bach­e­lor and Bach­e­lorette re­jects signed on for a sec­ond shot at love on spin-off series Bach­e­lor In Par­adise, they were ex­pect­ing fire­works. And that’s ex­actly what vil­lain Keira Maguire, 31, and Sam Frost run­ner-up Michael Turnbull, 36, got when they were re­luc­tantly set up on the first date of the series.

Yep, NW can ex­clu­sively re­veal the pair – who’ve clashed in the past – were fu­ri­ous when they dis­cov­ered their first shot at ro­mance on the is­land would be

with each other. In fact, just days into film­ing, Keira’s threat­ened to pack up and go home!

“Keira signed on to get set up with a good guy – not some­one she al­ready knows and dis­likes,” says a source. “She feels like she got stitched up, big time!”

Michael and Keira sparked ru­mours of a fling when they were pic­tured to­gether last Novem­ber, but days later things turned sour be­tween them – with Michael block­ing Keira on In­sta­gram. And, of course, Keira lashed out, ad­mit­ting to NW, “Let’s just think about the sit­u­a­tion – I would not date him. I’m not des­per­ate!” Awks!

Now Keira and Michael are said to be dev­as­tated that their chance to find love on the show has turned into a big joke.

“You could tell there weren’t any sparks. She wasn’t happy to be there,” NW’S exclusive eye­wit­ness spills. “It def­i­nitely looked like they were go­ing through the mo­tions.”

The source adds that fol­low­ing their date, an unim­pressed Keira dashed straight into a ho­tel room where she had a 20-minute melt­down.

“[She] was rat­tling off half a dozen names [of Bach­e­lors] and putting them all un­der the um­brella of ‘Ab­so­lutely Not Suit­able,’” our spy re­veals.

“She was ac­tu­ally quite foul with her lan­guage – most of her an­swers wouldn’t have been suit­able for tele­vi­sion.”

Now Keira, said to be crushed, is ready to go home.

“She feels be­trayed. She thought she was go­ing to have an op­por­tu­nity to let some­one sweep her off her feet,” says the source. “In the end, she ended up on a date with some­one she reck­ons is a to­tal knob!” n

‘There was no chem­istry be­tween Keira and Michael,’ says the source, seen here on set in Fiji
