He sure does like the blondes!

Is there a rule that reality TV contestants can only hook-up with fellow reality stars post-show? 

It’s starting to feel like it with yet another new happy couple confirmed. This time it's a Married At First Sight/The Bachelorette crossover.

One of Stu Laundy’s mates has told New Idea that the multimillionaire is seeing Troy's "ex-wife" Ashley Irvin following his break-up with Sophie Monk and is “blissfully happy.”

“Stu had never met Ashley before, but he saw her on MAFS and was very interested to see if there was a spark there. He was then approached by a mutual friend who told him Ashley was keen to meet. He was a little taken aback with Ashley’s bold approach as he is used to making the first move.”

We’d chalk this up as an unsubstantiated rumour, but the mag has pics of the couple getting VERY close on a romantic date.

Stu’s made no secret about looking for a new girlfriend since his split with Sophie, telling the Daily Telegraph, “sadly for me I may have had the love of my life in my ex-wife and wasted it, but I’ll keep searching.”

Ashley’s also made it clear she’s open to new love, writing on social media after her break-up with Troy, “unfortunately I didn’t meet the man of my dreams, but at least I put myself out there and hopefully I will meet my soulmate soon!”

And maybe she finally has!
