What’s more, Aaron wasn’t even able to remember Scottish model Shannon’s name, despite choosing to be coupled up with her, simply referring to her as ‘number five’.
Later on in the first episode of the much-anticipated seventh season of the ITV2 reality show, Shannon admitted that Aaron ‘wasn’t her type’.
It comes after Aaron revealed to The Daily Star earlier in June that he is cousins with Made In Chelsea’s Hugo Taylor, telling the paper: ‘Hugo is my cousin. I haven’t seen him in a while. We aren’t that close. But if I ever wanted to ask him for advice, I could. I’m quite close to his dad, too.’

Shameless: A sixth Twitter user accused Aaron of being ‘shameless’, saying: ‘Does Aaron have no shame picking someone who didn’t even step forward for him?’
He added: ‘Being related to Hugo and seeing what life is like for him means I can gauge what it is like to be on a TV show.’
The budding reality star added that he is also friends with influencers, saying: ‘I am friends with a couple of influencers.
‘But I haven’t dated anyone in the public eye before. And I haven’t done any TV before.’
