Stu Laundy makes long-awaited arrival on The Bachelorette

He is set to make his debut on The Bachelorette next week.

And Stu Laundy, one of four ‘older’ bachelors entering the mansion as intruders to vie for Sophie Monk’s heart, makes an impressive arrival in the series’ new trailer.

The 44-year-old can be seen showing up in a helicopter as Sophie, 37, remembers him as a familiar face from her past, much to the dismay of the other contestants.

Stu, who is heir to a $500 million pub fortune, appears to leave an immediate impression on Sophie as she walks up to the helicopter to welcome him to the show.

‘I think I recognise him from somewhere,’ an obviously smitten Sophie tells the camera as she reflects on the moment in her video confessional.

As he exits the aircraft, he kisses Sophie on her cheek and appears to hand over a small gift, with the blonde beauty gasping in delight.

‘I’m really concerned about this one,’ describes Mackane, another contestant.

According to OK!, Stu definitely ruffled feathers upon his heralded arrival – particularly when it was discovered he already knew Sophie before the show.

‘[Stu] wanted to keep a lid on the fact he already knew Sophie, because he predicted things would get out of hand and they did,’ a ‘source’ recently told the magazine.

‘The guys were already annoyed [about the intruders] and the bombshell discovery just added to that,’ they continued.

‘Some guys thought they’d been wasting their time and contemplated walking out,’ the ‘insider’ added.

Prior to the show Stu, who shares four children with his ex-wife Rachel Laundy, reportedly asked Sophie out on a date, although she declined.
