Blake, a 33-year-old auctioneer from Perth, has announced in an interview with New Idea that after 3 months of relationship counselling he and Louise chose to split.

‘We were walking on eggshells around each other, always trying to say the right thing … It was suffocating,’

However, 28-year-old Louise has said that it was his decision to end the relationship

‘We sat down recently and Blake said: “It’s just not working – I feel like we’re treading water”. I knew deep down that he was right but I would never have been strong enough to say it,’

‘It feels surreal and since then I have gone through so many emotions. I’ve been crying, numb and angry.’

Their relationship was always going to be challenging, with the public openly condemning Blake and Louise’s reunion due to his shock treatment of 27-year-old Sam after The Bachelor had finished.

Another one bites the dust.
