Love Island Australia‘s Eden Dally, 26, has spoken out after a photo showed him with what appears to be a white substance.
On Thursday, Who magazine published photos of the Sydney prison officer with a white substance neatly laid out on a small plate.
Speaking to the publication, the hard-partying reality star confirmed the photos are innocent and it is not suggested otherwise.
Love Island’s Eden Dally is seen with a white substance in an eyebrow-raising photo… after his ex-girlfriend Erin Barnett dropped a bombshell tell-all about their split
‘We were playing Cards Against Humanity and then we were doing tequila shots,’ Eden said.
‘We got the salt on the plate and one of the dares was either sniff it or lick it, so I sniffed the salt and then we did tequila shots.
He continued: ‘I get drug-tested nearly every week so I can’t do any drugs.’

The pair rose to national stardom as a smitten couple on Love Island Australia in June and at one point, they were tipped to win the show.
Despite revealing their plans for marriage and children, they ended their whirlwind romance just weeks after filming wrapped and Erin dropped a bombshell tell-all on YouTube last month.

‘This video will be a tell-all about my breakup with Eden,’ she began.
‘Last week, Eden went on a radio station to tell everyone why we broke up and then I found out… so I went on the radio station and told them exactly why we broke up – the real reasons! And some of it was pretty intense.’
The Melbourne nurse went on to describe a series of alleged altercations that occurred after filming wrapped and she claims she saw a side of Eden that shocked her.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Eden Dally for comment.
In July, fellow Love Island Australia contestant Teddy Briggs claimed Eden and Erin’s relationship was toxic and unhealthy.
A Channel Nine spokesperson said at the time: ‘The welfare of our Islanders on Love Island Australia is always paramount and there is an on set psychologist. Producers are available for Islanders to talk to 24/7.’
Eden previously told Daily Mail Australia that cheating rumours caused his split from Erin.
‘There were many issues. A few little jealously and trust issues. Arguments and disagreements because strangers would send Erin and me messages,’ he said.
‘It was just happening constantly. Girls would claim they were with me or saw me with other girls. I would do nightclub appearances and girls would say [to Erin], ‘Eden was getting rowdy with other girls in Adelaide last night’ or ‘Eden was with my friend.’
He added: ‘Or if a girl asked for a photo, they would claim I was with them last night. Like, a complete stranger.’
Moving on? He was also pictured getting cosy with Instagram model Ali Cappelli (right) at the Tia Maria Coffee Project at Cruise Bar on The Rocks on Monday
Since Eden’s split from Erin last month, the Love Island Australia runner-up has been heavy on the social scene, attending various parties and events.
He’s also wasted no time moving on, after he was spotted flirting with a busty blonde at the TJ Swim SS19 launch at Upper East Side Bondi last month.
