Watch out Art and Matilda: there's a hot new reality TV couple in town.

The Bachelor runner-up Dani Robinson and X Factor judge Shelton Woolright have confirmed their relationship with a loved-up public appearance together.

Robinson, who had her heart broken by Green when he chose Rice in the finale of The Bachelor NZ, and Woolright attended Wednesday night's screening of The Hateful Eight at Event cinemas in Newmarket together.

Despite avoiding Herald photographers on the red carpet, they sat together in the front rows of the cinema, cheered when Quentin Tarantino introduced the film, and left the theatre arm-in-arm.

Robinson also posted this photo of the pair together at UB40's concert at Matua Wines in Auckland on Sunday.


Rumours swirled at the end of last year that Robinson was dating Woolright, the drummer for rock band I Am Giant and former judge on another TV3 show The X Factor NZ. At the time, Robinson said she didn't want to comment.

It is believed they met while training for their Fight For Life boxing bouts in December, which saw Woolright beat Jesse Peach and Robinson win over former Miss Earth NZ Lisa Fa'afou.

Woolright called Robinson a "babe" when she wished him luck for his match.


Robinson made it to the final two on The Bachelor NZ, but broke down in tears when Green told her he was choosing Matilda Rice over her. Green and Rice are still together.

While Robinson was unlucky in love on The Bachelor, she told the Herald after the show finished in May she had been swamped with offers from potential suitors.

"They're somehow finding my personal Facebook page and messaging me on that," she said. "People say, 'Don't worry about Art, he's a loser, date me, I'm way cooler'. Since last week I've probably had over 50 (offers)."

Woolright is known for his high-profile relationship with model Nicky Watson. He was one of the replacement judges on The X Factor NZ last year after Willy Moon and Natalia Kills were axed for bullying a contestant.
