Suzi Taylor, former contestant of The Block, has always denied she was seeing Today co-host Richard Wilkins, but has now confirmed that they were in fact dating.
Speaking to the Courier Mail, she says she met the entertainment reporter at an event in Queensland and they hit it off.
“We were at the Channel 9 telethon when we first connected,” said Taylor.
“From there, I would go to Sydney to see him. He gave me access to his house and I would be there in my underwear waiting for him when he got home from work.”
Taylor has said the relationship lasted a few months, and ended when Wilkins broke up with her over the phone. The break up happened not long after Taylor collapsed on The Block and was later admitted to rehab.
Both Wilkins and Taylor have previously denied that they were ever romantically involved.
The rumours of an affair began to surface when they were snapped together at a charity event.
Adding fire to fuel was a photo posted by Wilkins’ son, Christian, onto his Instagram account.
At the time Richard Wilkins denied having any romantic involvement with Suzi, “I am not romantically involved with Suzi from The Block”.
Channel Nine even released a statement denying the rumours, saying, “Richard Wilkins and Suzi Taylor are not and have never been in a relationship”.
Richard Wilkins is yet to comment about Suzi Taylor’s latest claims.
