Remember this day.
It’s a day you’ll want to tell your grandchildren about, a moment that shall go down in history as the day Louise Pillidge and Blake Garvey (Great Lovers Of Our Time) took part in a break-up photoshoot to formally announce the death of their relationship.
However, the practicality of break-up photoshoots has not been the subject on everybody’s lips since the news broke. Which, to be honest, says a lot about how we are failing as a society.
Instead, it’s all been about Louise.
Poor, stupid, victim Louise who was tricked by Bad Guy Blake into moving to Perth and shaking up in a ‘trendy’ two bedroom apartment and tending to his every disgraced reality TV star needs.
It’s true that Louise and Blake’s relationship was born out of tragic beginnings as, much like Romeo and Juliet, their love started out as a forbidden affair.
The Bachelor star Blake proposed to Sam Frost during the show’s finale, only to change his mind and profess his undying devotion for second-runner up Louise instead, once filming had wrapped.

But since the couple announced their split via the New Idea photoshoot, the general feeling is that Louise is the patsy who has been taken for a ride on free-to-air television and then tragically dumped. Instead of a complicit accomplice in the kind of love affair that magazine editors have dirty dreams about.
