trending 26/10/2016

Two contestants from The Bachelor Australia have ditched the bloke and given each other a rose instead.

Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon met on the hit reality TV show earlier this year, each vying for the affection of Richie Strahan.

The pair has since revealed through a series of gushing Instagram posts that their relationship has "ripened into something bolder".

After posting many photos hugging each other, in bed together and posing for the camera in lingerie and swimwear, official confirmation of their couple status has finally been given.

"I love you," Marx wrote in an emotional post for Scanlon's 30th birthday.

Every adventure we have rivals the other - and continues to make plans for itself. Yesterday I flew this beautiful woman to The Abrolhos islands... I have to admit that I felt so, so proud to be with her, my favourite person.

Scanlon posted her own photo on Instagram, calling Marx her "favourite person" in return and saying meeting her "felt like destiny".
