Fave To Win Sophie Monk’s Heart Once Dated Matty J’s Laura
In bizarre, cross-season news, it’s been revealed that hot favourite to win Sophie Monk’s heart, Luke McLeod once dated Matty J’s winner, Laura Byrne.
Geez what a week😱 Never in my wildest dreams would I of thought I would do something like the #bacheloretteAU but sometimes when life throws you one of those 'once in lifetime opportunities balls', you just gotta run with it and see how things end up. . Big thanks to everyone already for all the support. You're the best!! Now bring on the weekend ey ☀️ 🏄🏽 🎸 ✌🏼️ x . and apparently I look like George Clooney.... isn't he like 60 or something?? 👴🏼 haha #oldman #ididntthinkIwasthatold #maybeitstimeforthehairdye #BacheloretteAU
Obviously this all happened before she was given the final rose by Matty J, and it came after Luke got out of a previous 10-year relationship with someone else.
“We did date for a couple of months, I swear to God it was a complete coincidence,” he told Confidential of the pair both ending up on reality shows.
“She’s an amazing woman, we met through mutual friends, we dated for a couple of months and realised we were better off being really good friends and that’s where things are at now.
She’s been so supportive of my journey and what I’m going through and she’s gone through something so similar."
Luke said he “couldn’t believe it” when he saw Laura on an ad for The Bachelor.
“I thought ‘what is going on here’. There was no hesitation in reaching out (to her) and I said ‘wow, I wish you all the best’ and it obviously did work out amazing for her, she met an incredible guy. She’s given me some advice and been incredibly supportive of me finding the same type of person.”
Woah! What are the odds…
