IT'LL be tears, heartbreak and oiled-up chests on Bachelor In Paradise, if the first extended look at the series is anything to go by.

Ten last night debuted a two-minute teaser for the highly anticipated reality dating show, expected to hit screens in March once the current season of I'm A Celeb has finished.

A group of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette's most memorable contestants - among them player Michael Turnbull, implausibly beefy Apollo Jackson, and seasoned reality TV vets Keira Maguire and Laurina Fluere - are thrust together on a tropical island to drink, flirt and engage in heavy petting under secluded waterfalls.

It's not all fun and games, though - as the trailer shows, there's more heartbreak ahead for at least a couple of the contestants, with Laurina and Keira shown in tears, and talk of a "love triangle" that's turned into a "love square" (sounds painful).

Laurina's had her share of heartbreak.

The trailer culminates with the reveal that there will be a marriage proposal on the show, but frankly Ten have brushed over the real highlight here - a brief look at an oiled-up Apollo impressing his fellow contestants with a bout of shirtless fire twirling:

Now that's quality television right there.
