Becky confirmed her split with Pete just hours after the finale aired, taking to Instagram, she wrote, "Unfortunately things didn't work out with Pete and I.

"Although I wasn’t lucky enough to find my person this time around, I am grateful for this opportunity and leave with fond memories and no regrets.

"I wish Pete happiness and all the best in his search for love."

Pete has deleted all but one of his posts from his time on the Bachelorette, saying, "I'm truly grateful for the experience."

He also thanked Becky and Elly Miles, "Thank you both for having me as part of your journey. You are great people with hearts of gold and I know that the moments we shared were authentic and genuine. I’m confident you feel the same."

However, it would seem as though the girls don't feel that way.

Speaking to Nova's Fitzy and Wippa after the finale aired, Becky said she was "angry" at Pete.

Elly, meanwhile, told the Daily Telegraph her sister felt a "bit cheated" as Pete wasn't transparent, adding, "I don't think he was really in touch with himself."

While Elly and her chosen man Frazer Neate were together at the time the finale aired, the pair recently split also.
