Bachelor fans appalled as magazine cover shows Matt Agnew holding hands with Elly Miles
He’s currently head over heels for his Bachelor winner, Chelsie McLeod.
But despite the pair’s constant loved-up updates, one magazine has falsely claimed Matt Agnew has actually dumped his champion for Elly Miles – with a clearly edited image of the duo on the cover sending fans into meltdown.
The Photoshopped Woman’s Day snap, showing a beaming Matt, 32, and fifth-place finalist Elly, 24, holding hands, featured the the caption: ‘Bachelor bombshell! Yes! He’s with Elly!’
‘Yes! He’s with Elly!’ Woman’s Day shared an image of Matt Agnew and Elly Miles holding hands (bottom right) – despite Matt being blissfully happy with Chelsie McLeod
While the front image implies the duo are now a couple, inside, the article only speculates that the pair could reunite one day following rumours he and Chelsie are over.
It claims Matt was ‘beside himself’ when he eliminated Elly, and says the move was more to do with producers wanting Abbie Chatfield to be a ‘successful TV villain’.
Understandably, the image didn’t go down well with Bachelor fans, who were quick to comment on the ‘disrespectful’ nature of the shot – especially since Matt and Chelsie are still together.
One disgruntled fan wrote: ‘You can see that pic has been Photoshopped, even the lighting on each person is completely different, what a joke! That’s ridiculous.’

‘What a joke!’ Fans were left furious by the edited image, which appeared to show Matt Agnew had dumped his girlfriend Chelsie McLeod for fifth-place finalist Elly Miles
A second wrote: ‘Even Elly said she’s been travelling in her posts, and wants to move on from the whole thing!’ while another fan raged: ‘What a s****y Photoshop job!’
‘Hahahahaha good try!’ a fourth chimed in, while a fifth added: ‘When you’re really upset about the outcome.’
Despite the rumours, Matt and Chelsie have continued to show fans how happy they are in a number of press appearances following the airing of the finale.

On Friday, the genetically-blessed pair put to bed rumours of a split during an appearance on The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
Radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson asked Matt and Chelsie: ‘We were wondering yesterday if you’ve already split up, because that was such a strong rumour going around…
‘You can say on the record, definitely not?’
‘Definitely not!’ Matt and Chelsie said in unison, before the astrophysicist added: ‘We’re not just pretending.’
