Despite the fact that intruders have appeared in every season of The Bachelor, it seems it always comes as a shock to the contestants – and it was no different on Thursday's episode when Bec Cvilikas arrived (to her own house because contestants were still stuck in lockdown).

But one thing that has seriously upset fans is the fact Bachelor Locky Gilbert chose to keep Bec along with the two girls who are seemingly responsible for all the drama in the house: Juliette Herrera and Roxi Kenny.

Fans took to social media to share their feelings about Locky keeping Juliette, Roxi and Bec and choosing to send fan favourite Nicole Campbell home.

It shocked fans as Nicole seemingly had good chemistry with Locky and even scored the Triple Threat Rose at the beginning of the show, while Maddy Carver, who hasn't had a single date just yet, stayed.

One Twitter user wrote: "Okay I’m pissed, I thought Nicole was the only genuine and nice one in there, I already didn’t like Locky but OMFG Nicole you are so much better without him."

Another added: "Wait what. No! Nicole, my beautiful summer bird! You were too glorious for this place."

Someone else responded: "Is there a GIF of Roxi saying, 'This is total bulls***!' Because sending [Nicole] home was 'total bulls***!'"

"Lost interest now that Nicole was sent home," someone else said.

Many were upset that producers were manufacturing so much drama with one fan writing: "So weird just tacking on another girl like that I mean like why... And sending the sweet Nicole home was a mistake. Too much obvious manufactured drama this year... As usual."

Another said: "I absolutely did not see Triple Threat Rose Nicole going home tonight. she really should have gone further I thought they had good chemistry. I thought it was Maddy for sure, but really needs to be Juliette and Roxi - done with their BS."

Many also pointed out that Locky seems to fall for every girl he meets. One user said: "Locky is like a magpie. Oh, shiny, here's another girl I'm going to spend the rest of my life with. He knows he doesn't get to keep the harem, right?"

Another added: "Locky literally falls in love with anyone who pays attention to him.... I feel sorry for whoever won and has to watch this....haha if they are even still together... his attention span is worse than Homer."

Proving she's one of the loveliest girls in the house, Nicole wished Locky all the best as she left, saying she hoped he found what he was looking for.
