Farmer Ben also revealed why he hadn’t taken to social media sooner, especially since Leish had announced their split on her own Instagram account just days after the reunion episode aired.
“I wanted to get out and have my voice and say hello but I just haven’t been able to,” he explained, before sharing that Channel Seven had been running his account.
Leish posted to her Instagram stories to announce news of the split earlier this month, sharing text that read: “I am completely heartbroken to announce that sadly Ben and I have parted ways."
“I tried everything I could to make our relationship last after the show (including wanting to move to the farm earlier, YES everyone I was always planning on moving) but unfortunately it wasn't there for Ben anymore and I was left absolutely shocked and heartbroken.”
“I gave it my all and fell in love with ben, his daughter and family (which hurts a little bit extra).”
“I am thankful for the support I have had these past few months from the other girls on bens farm and the other farms. They have been true selfless legends in helping me heal.”
“I wish Ben all the best.”
