After weeks of hints, two contestants on The Bachelor Australia have confirmed they are in a relationship.

Rumours had been swirling for some time that Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlan’s close friendship may actually be a blossoming romance, thanks to a lengthy series of bizarre naked photo shoots and “couple shots” with gushing captions.

To mark Tiffany’s 30th birthday, the pair took their union out of the dark with Megan declaring “I love you” in an emotional Instagram post during their holiday on the Abrolhos Islands.

The 27-year-old admitted they’d met in “strange” circumstances on the dating reality show, but that they’d had an instant connection.

“From that first cocktail party, it was like this instant calibration between souls, as if we had known each other once before,” she wrote.

“Friendship ripened into something bolder, trust in a very strange situation was formed, and now every adventure we have rivals the other – and continues to make plans for itself.”
