‘The Bachelor’s’ Matt Agnew And Chelsie McLeod Have Called It Quits

"It is with a heavy heart I write this..."

Just a few months ago, we watched as Matt Agnew picked Chelsie McLeod in The Bachelor Australia’s finale episode – seeing Abbie Chatfield walk away broken-hearted. Now, the seemingly picture-perfect couple has decided to call it quits. 

Taking to Instagram to share the news, Matt writes: “These past six months since filming has been a very unique experience. Chels and I have made some beautiful memories together that I’ll always cherish, and I wish her nothing but the absolute best.

“However, it’s with a heavy heart that I write this. For Chels and me, our relationship hasn’t translated from filming to the real, everyday world as we had hoped. Chels is a very special woman and I want her to find the happiness she deserves.

For those who may wonder if there’s someone else for me right now, there absolutely is not.” 

He finished, “It’s no one’s fault, it’s just life.” 


Chelsie took to her own account to share the news. 

“Thank you so much to everyone for your support and kind words over what was an incredibly exciting, rewarding, challenging, and emotional journey.

“Your words have not gone unnoticed. Matt showed me what it was like to be respected in a relationship and I am so thankful for that. However, it saddens me to say that we are no longer together.

“I wish him nothing but the best. I’m sorry to those that were invested in our relationship. Please remember to be kind online as you don’t know what is going on behind the screen. All my love.” 

Abbie is yet to respond.
