Claims Locky 'ghosted' ex-girlfriend Brooke Jowett   

Locky made headlines in March after his ex-lover, Survivor star Brooke Jowett, accused him of 'ghosting' her to become The Bachelor. 

Posting to social media after Locky was announced as The Bachelor, Brooke wrote: 'Yes, I'm hurt and a little blindsided (excuse the pun) but I wish the best for Locky. I always will.'

The Melbourne-based personal trainer jokingly said she hopes her ex 'stacks it and splits his pants on day one'. 

'I guess we had different things planned in our heads for what was to come over the next few months, but you can't be mad at someone for doing what they feel is best for them, even if it does sting a little,' she said.  

'In no way am I or is my Survivor experience defined by Locky or any other man. I was never hiding in his shadow in the game and I won't be hiding in his shadow now.'

She went on: 'I know I have bigger and better things in store (maybe not bigger actually, Locky is pretty bloody big) but definitely better.'

Brooke also revealed they had planned to visit Bali together in April, after their journey on Survivor was filmed last year. 

However, Locky has told multiple publications that he and Brooke were 'never an item'.
