The Bachelor 2012: Spencer Matthews 'banned' from seeing winner

Spencer Matthews (The Bachelor 2012 UK)

The Bachelor UK star Spencer Matthews has been banned from seeing his chosen winner from the show.

While filming for the series was completed earlier in the summer, the show is still airing on Channel 5.

It means that Spencer and and his new girlfriend aren't allowed to see or even talk to one another, over fears from telly bosses it'll spoil the show for viewers.

The new series launched back in June, and will conclude later this month

“Because the show is still airing we can’t be seen out together," Spencer said. “We can’t be in touch. It’s an odd period.”

Asked if he felt like he had picked the right girl of the 24 original contenders, Spencer said: “I hope so. I need to spend more time with her off camera.

“We’ve never had a dinner date.”
