- Tegan admitted to hospital after ‘eating everything in sight’
- Tegan told she was ‘too fat’ for Australia’s Next Top Model
ONE of Australia’s most beautiful women is back on the market after splitting from her boyfriend of just over a year.
Confidential can reveal former Miss Universe Australia Tegan Martin has called time on her relationship with Randwick rugby player Sam Croke.
The news comes seven months after Martin competed on Channel Ten reality show I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!, on which she told campmates she wasn’t sure Croke was “the one” because she wasn’t in the right mindset after her previous relationship.
Martin, 25, and Croke went public with their relationship just over a year ago at the 2016 Dally M Awards. He is three years her junior and works in finance but wasn’t by her side at the recent awards.
Martin is in the Philippines for work and wasn’t available for comment yesterday.
Prior to going into the South African jungle on the show, Martin told Confidential Croke wasn’t the jealous type.

“We are a pretty adventurous couple,” she said. “He goes away a lot for football and we are used to being apart. He is really supportive of everything I do. He knows I am quite a flirty person and I am not meaning to be flirty. It could just be one of my best mates. He is the cruisiest boyfriend I’ve ever had.”

The couple didn’t live together.
“I am not married and don’t feel ready to be married yet so I am taking things really slow in this relationship,” she said earlier this year.
Martin previously dated tradie turned model Angus Hood and is understood to have been approached by Channel Ten to star in The Bachelorette but said she couldn’t because of her relationship with Croke.
