Locky Gilbert professed to have fallen in love with winner Irena Srbinovska on Thursday’s finale episode of The Bachelor, and it’s now quite clear, that he’s smitten.
The 31-year-old former Australian Survivor star warmly embraced Irena on a night out in Sydney on Friday, after finally being able to go public with their romance.
Locky passionately locked lips with Irena, 31, on an inner city street, and pointed to a sign on the wall that read ‘school of nursing’ – in a nod to her chosen career path.

‘Douglas is Locky’s middle name so that’s where I got it from and no one picked up on that!’ she explained.
