The Bachelor’s Laura Calleri was ‘gutted’ for pal Bella Varelis when she was dumped for her arch-nemesis Irena Srbinovska during the finale episode this year.
But Laura had nothing but love for the winning couple while on a night out in Fremantle, Western Australia on Saturday.
The 24-year-old shared photos to Instagram of herself embracing Irena and Locky at the event venue, with Locky even planting a kiss on her head in one of the pictures.

‘Sorry Irena, can I just grab Locky for a chat?’ Laura hilariously captioned the post.
In one photo, Laura, dressed in a white frock, slotted herself in between the couple, as Locky, 31, planted a kiss on her head and Irena, 31, beamed for the camera.
While in the second, Laura rested her head against Locky’s chest, closing her eyes.
Back in September, Laura told Perth Now that she was ‘gutted’ for ‘best mate’ Bella, 25, during the finale episode.

‘I was never actually that into him; just supporting Bella pretty much,’ she said.
‘Bella is one of my best mates. I was pretty gutted. I actually sat at home and bawled my eyes out feeling for Bella.’
During the gut-wrenching finale, Locky told Bella and Irena he was in love with both of them – but then had the tricky task of sending one home.

He broke down in tears as Bella arrived to face the music, telling her he ‘fell in love’ the first day he saw her, before coming up with a rather feeble excuse to end things.
‘I know you don’t, like, sort of see where your future is at the moment. I think I need just a little bit of certainty,’ he said, as Bella looked at him in utter disbelief.
‘I just don’t know if I can see us working,’ he added, to which the brunette replied: ‘I just don’t get it. Yesterday, you told me you were in love with me.’

As Locky tried to explain himself, a furious Bella stormed off and snapped: ‘My God… Can I leave? I’m going.’
She later told producers: ‘Who does that to someone? Who tells them they’re in love with them and then… I just want to get out of here.’
After the emotional break-up, Locky composed himself and then professed his love for Irena, telling her he couldn’t wait to spend the rest of his life with her.
