The Bachelor Australia’s Laura Byrne may have revealed she had a fling with a former Bachelorette Australia star before finding love with Matty J Johnson, however, she never told us who it was with.

Now, after some investigating, we can confirm that Laura used to hook up with Luke McLeod from Sophie Monk’s season — and they both admitted it over five years ago!

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph back in 2017, Luke revealed that he had “dated” Laura, however, it was a “complete coincidence”.

What was also coincidental, was that their seasons were running simultaneously on Network Ten and we completely forgot they even did this!!

“We did date for a couple of months, I swear to God it was a complete coincidence,” he told the outlet at the time.

“She’s an amazing woman, we dated for a couple of months and realised we were better off being really good friends and that’s where things are at now. She’s been so supportive of my journey.” Woweeee!

What Did Laura Byrne Say About the Hook-Up?

“I dated a guy who was on The Bachelorette,” she added.

Laura also explained that it was “never a weekend relationship” and that he was her “Wednesday night guy”! LOL!
