Who could ever forget the moment Matt Agnew revealed his "heart belongs to someone else" as Abbie Chatfield immediately let go of his hands and walked away.

On Thursday, Abbie shared several loved up shots from a wedding with her boyfriend and former Channel V presenter, Danny Clayton.

In one snap, Danny, 34, can be seen poking fun of Abbie's Bachelor ties as he hands her a rose.
"FYI I was nine when I had a crush on @dannyclayton. Dreams come true," Abbie captioned her story, in reference to the fact she watched Danny on Channel V as a kid.
Romance rumours between Danny and Abbie first began swirling back in June when the pair were spotted on a very flirty date in Sydney.
