With Matty getting closer and closer to the final rose on his season of The Bachelor, the rumour mill is in full swing with speculation about which woman wins his heart.
Sydney-based jewellery designer Laura Bryne has been picked as a frontrunner from day one, with many of the contestants confirming they think she has a good chance of taking out the show.
But over the past few days, there's been reports that Laura and Matty J met long before the first episode - with publications reporting the pair had even been on a few dates in Bondi, where they both live.
Now, Laura has put an end to the gossip, saying that while she'd crossed paths with Matty before, the pair had never met prior to the show.
“We both live in similar areas and I had seen him before in public, but we had never exchanged a word,” she told The Daily Telegraph.
“The first time we spoke was on that first night.”
Laura also revealed her sister was the person she confided in while in the mansion.
"[She] knows everything ... She was the only person who I spoke to while I was in the house."
Someone get the Bryne sister on the phone!
