The Bachelor’s Locky Gilbert has shocked fans of the franchise by hitting back at split rumours with a very revealing comment.
Amid rumours that the Survivor turned reality dating star is hitting up women outside the franchise, the 30-year-old hit back in, of all places the official Bachelor Instagram comment section with, of all things, a forbidden spoiler.
In a since-deleted surprise tell-all, the adventure tour guide from Perth told a concerned fan that he is both ‘madly in love’ and ‘happier than ever’.
The comment was made on a birthday tribute to the reality star by a fan who was concerned he was acting ‘fake’ for the cameras.
Locky says he is ‘madly in love’ in deleted comment
“Cheers happy bday,” the fan wrote. “Just hope [you’re] not fake! Been reading in magazines the whole show is fake!! If it's true I don't like it because you are playing with innocent victims unless you are all acting!”
In response Locky put the fan and the rest of us at ease, assuring her the rumours were just rumours.
“I can happily tell you I am madly in love and we are still happier then (sic) ever together,” he wrote in response.
Punctuating his response with three red love hearts, Locky clearly didn’t get the all-clear from Nine before-hand, with the comment disappearing within an hour of it being shared.
Flirty chat included when another female fan asked: “Where are your clothes, mister?”
Locky said that he’d “lost em” to which the woman responded: “not gonna lie, I’m not complaining”.
Another observed: “Bach has made you soft, need to get back in Survivor mode on a beach”.
“Give me a machete haha,” Locky joked.
The latest spoiler comes after screenshots of a zoom call were leaked that purported to reveal the final four ladies, one of whom clearly caught Locky’s heart and kept it.
With revelations being dropped left right and centre it remains to be seen if any mystery will remain buy the time Locky chooses his winner once and for all.
