Locky apologises to Irena after SAS confession

It comes after Locky was forced to apologise to Irena after shocking SAS viewers by bragging that he hasn't worked in over a decade.

The reality star took to his Instagram Stories to apologise to his girlfriend and his mother, who both work in healthcare.

"I just want to clear things up with the comment I made last night," he began. "I never meant it in the way it was edited. What I meant was that I am so lucky that I get to do what I love each and every day.

"I said I haven't worked a day in the last 10 years because 'when you do what you love you don't work a day in your life.'

"When I said I don't know how people go to work every day, they left out the part where I said to a job they hate. Unfortunately this came across the wrong way."

He added that he had worked countless 12-hour days, seven days a week "working my ass off in the last 10 years of my life".

Locky continued saying he doesn't believe what he does is work, simply because he loves it so much.

"I pinch myself every day and I am so grateful that I have the life I have," he said.

"My beautiful partner and mother both work in healthcare and they are both so passionate about their jobs, I love that they get to do what they love. I never meant for it to come across the way it did and I am deeply sorry if my comments offended anyone."

During the episode, Locky said that he couldn't imagine why anyone would choose to "get up and go to work" every day, with social media users slamming the former Bachelor star for his "white male privilege".

Locky owns an adventure tourism company in Bali that hasn't been in operation since the beginning of the Covid pandemic.

Since then, he's hopped from one reality show to another and earns money as an influencer.

"In the last 10 years, I mean, I really haven't worked," he said. "It blows my mind people get up, they go to work every single day, living a mundane and boring life."

"I've just done whatever I wanted to do, and it's got me this far," he added.
