In news that would be absolutely wild if it turned out to be true, there are reports this weekend that wayward Bachelor Nick Cummins has found love and is in the throes of a new relationship with chicken heiress Lucy Steggles.
We’ve been burned by rumours about the Honey Badger‘s love life before – like that time we were all convinced that he was dating Brittany Hockley – so we’ll take these latest rumours with a grain of (chicken) salt.
Having said that, the Sunday Telegraph is saying that Cummins and Steggles, who have been friends for “a number of years”, took their relationship to the next level when they walked the Kokoda Track together recently.
Nick Cummins reportedly met Lucy Steggles through her sister’s boyfriend, who is his trainer, who swallowed the spider to catch the fly. I guess we’ll die.
The Honey Badger was in Papua New Guinea when the Bachelor finale aired, and caught some significant backlash when he returned home to Brisbane, with fans and media disappointed that he did not choose either Brittany or Sophie.
He granted several interviews to Ten‘s The Project, and addressed the backlash in an Instagram video, saying he hopes we can all move on.
The former Wallabies star was previously in a relationship with Martine Thomassen, an artist from Norway, and it was rumoured that he may have reconnected with her after the show, although we’ll wait and see how this current one plays out.
