STOP. EVERYTHING. (Except breathing – don’t stop that. Just… look.)
The most recent TV appearance from newly crowned Bachie lovers Sophie Monk and Stu Laundry has all of Australia asking, ‘Are they, or aren’t they?’ (Absolutely everybody in this country watches The Bachelorette, right?)
That’s because when the new couple appeared on The Project last night, things looked a little… uhhh… awkward.
Fans were quick to point out that the couple’s ‘lack of physical contact’, and snide jokes and looks at each other throughout may be evidence that the pair are not together or in love at all.
It’s a question panelist Meshel Laurie was quick to ask within seconds of the pair taking their seats.
“Are you two still together?” she prodded, prompting Sophie and Stu to exchange an uncomfortable glance.
“I’d like to think so…” began Sophie, as Stu joked, “Well… it’s been a rough afternoon”.
The pair quickly clarified that “of course” they were still an item, with Stu adding they were “very happy”.
But it wasn’t quite enough to convince the die-hard Bach fans (oh, and radio star Kate Langbroek, who had interviewed the pair just hours earlier) playing along at home.
Well that was awkward don’t look like a couple in love to me!
