Ciarran Stott slammed by fans over 'disrespectful' photo of girlfriend

We're only four days into the new year, but Bachie drama is already kicking off on Instagram after Bachelorette star Ciarran Stott shared a photo of himself with his new girlfriend Ruby Burciaga to Instagram.

The photo sees the pair posing in front of a mirror, with the reality star covering Ruby's bare chest as she wears nothing but underwear.

"Disrespectful, so last century, unfollow," one person commented, while another called it "tacky".

"Hand bra. Everyone needs one," another added.


One sarcastically called it "classy", while others were all for the snap, with one user writing: "Happy for you brother."

"Dying over you two," another follower wrote.

The reality star first shared a snap of himself and Ruby late last month, writing, "Life with you is pretty damn good."

He had previously hinted to fans that he was seeing someone in November. When asked during a Q&A if he was single, his answer was simply, "No."

It comes after he surprised fans by flying to Europe to battle it out on the Swedish Bachelorette and win the heart of Julia Franzén.

"I’m gonna steal the show, and probably steal her heart too. I definitely feel like the boys should be threatened by me, being from Australia with an English accent. Hot, heavy, ready. Let’s go," he said on the show.

Despite his confidence, Ciarran was eliminated during episode 10 of the show.
