Irena Srbinovska is one of the front-runners to win Locky Gilbert’s heart on The Bachelor this season.

And it’s easy to see why Locky is so smitten with the stunning nurse judging by their physical chemistry together.

In photos taken during a romantic date while filming the show in July, a bikini-clad Irena, 31, straddles the Australian Survivor hunk underneath a waterfall. 

Place your bets now! The Bachelor’s Locky Gilbert shared a passionate kiss with bookies’ favourite Irena Srbinovska during a beach date that was filmed in July

Locky, who was shirtless, flaunted his ripped abs and chiselled chest in nothing more than a pair of boardshorts.

The couple certainly looked hot and heavy as they embraced each other in the water and kissed passionately.

Filming wrapped on The Bachelor six weeks ago, and Locky, 31, claims he hasn’t been able to see his ladylove since their ‘secret rendezvous’ after the finale.

He told The Kyle and Jackie O Show on August 11: ‘We had the rendezvous after the show, but because of COVID-19 and being locked up in a house in Perth, we haven’t seen each other yet and it doesn’t look likely to see each other until after the show.’

With Locky based in Perth, it would be very difficult for him to travel between states due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Irena lives in Melbourne and his other rumoured finalist, Bella Varelis, lives in Sydney.
