Just last week, Laura took to her Instagram to gush over Brittany, calling their friendship the ‘most unlikely love story to come out of The Bachelor’.

“It fills me with oodles of pride that each week we get to sit down and chat about the big things, the small things and all the weird life things in between,” she asid, talking about their podcast they have together, Life Uncut. 

“Thank you to everyone who has listened to our podcast, written in, left reviews and found some comfort and belly laughs in our unqualified but heart felt and enthusiastic advice. 650,000 DOWNLOADS.... no you hang up!!! I bloody love creating @lifeuncutpodcast with this Wonder Woman. New ep is out now loves.”
