Brooke shared the news of her loss a few weeks ago, taking to her Instagram stories to explain.

“I do like to think I live a very private life but I kinda felt like I wanted to share with you where I’m at,” she shared.

“On the 11/8 I had just received news that my sister passed away. I’ve been trying to process that on my own being stuck in a Sydney lockdown without my family, off-country, and by myself.

“I’ve thankfully had huge support from production and friends working tirelessly to get me back into WA.”

“I truly believe in life that when there comes good, comes bad. This felt like one of those moments, but I can’t believe the huge support I’ve had,” she said.

“I feel, honestly, so grateful. I wouldn’t be coping if it wasn’t for production, my friends, my loved ones and (my dog) Cobar.”

With Brooke leaving Sydney during the filming of the upcoming Bachelorette season, it’s unknown when we might see the proud Noongar Yamatji woman take on her quest for love.
