The Bachelor's Richie and Alex leave Sydney holding hands

Rumours have been flying that Bachelor winner Alex Nation and Richie Strahan aren't even together IRL.

But it turns out that's a pile of doodoo because they've been snapped looking pretty darn loved-up at Sydney airport.

Beaming from ear-to-ear, single-mum Alex looked like the cat who'd got the cream as she clutched her new man's hand.

And Richie looked equally stoked about his new missus!

But despite their super cosy display, rumours that Richie's going to pull a 'Blake Garvey' and revert to his number two - aka Nikki Grogan - are continuing to fly.

However, Nikki's revealed that even if he did come calling, she wouldn't want a bar of it.

“I believe that the person meant for me would choose me first in every possible version of reality. We obviously weren’t meant to be," she told the Kyle and Jackie O Show.

Asked what she'd say if he came back groveling, she replied: “I would say, ‘no thank you... I don’t feel like I’m in love like I was three and a half months ago.”

Onya Nikki!
