We’ve known that Survivor hunk Locky Gilbert is going to be our new Bachelor for less than a week and there’s already rumours going around about him.

And if true, no doubt this is going to cause some serious drama for Locky both in and out of the Bachie mansion.

The wild rumour claims that Locky dumped his girlfriend just two days before signing on the be Channel 10’s leading man on the reality dating show.

And no, we’re not talking about Brooke… It’s ANOTHER girl!

A friend of Locky’s alleged ex has spoken to Woman’s Day, claiming that Locky dumped her friend two days before being placed into lockdown by The Bachelor producers.

This basically insinuates that he only broke up with the girl so that he could go on the show…

“She was devastating! Getting dumped by any means is horrible, but finding out he’s The Bachelor… it was a big blow to her,” the anonymous friend reportedly told Woman’s Day.

“She was absolutely smitten with him – they shared a really special bond… she thought he was The One.”

This comes after Locky has already copped some heat for the way he apparently handled things with his romance with his Survivor co-star Brooke Jowett.

While the pair seemed smitten on the show, it seemed that things didn’t eventuate in the real world after Locky was named Bachelor.

But then Brooke came out on her Instagram account to say that she was completely “hurt” and “blindsided” by the news of Locky’s new TV role and even seemed to claim that she’d already booked a holiday to go and visit him in Bali, where he lives.
