He's been linked to a bevy of beauties since his split from Sophie Monk, but it seems The Bachelorette winner Stu Laundy, 45, has set his sights on yet another blonde reality star!

According to a source close to the Sydney publican, the father-of-four made contact with 28-year-old Married At First Sight bride Ashley Irvin after her onscreen "marriage" to Troy Delmege fell apart.

"Ash is Stu's type, so he reached out to her on Instagram and they've been in contact for weeks. He's keen to see if their online spark translates in person and is desperate to take her on a date," revealed the source.

It's thought Stu has now 
put the pressure on the Brisbane-based flight attendant to lock in a date for a face-to-face meeting – before another millionaire sweeps her off her feet!

The onscreen couples all had failed relationships. But could there be a spark between *The Bachelorette*'s Stu and *Married at First Sight*'s Ash?

But is Stu too late? Ash was recently spotted enjoying 
a very romantic evening in Sydney with her fellow MAFS star Justin Fischer.

The 41-year-old millionaire, who's onscreen wife Carly is now in a relationship with Ash's onscreen husband Troy, picked Ash up from the airport in his BMW convertible, before they sat down for 
an intimate dinner at the waterfront Park Hyatt Hotel.

The couple then 
took a romantic harbourside stroll, where Justin – known for being somewhat reserved when it comes to showing 
any affection – couldn't keep his hands off the blonde bombshell.
