Georgia Love Lee Elliott

"Our second night as a couple was spent with him literally holding me as I screamed and shook for hours and hours and hours."

Bachelorette star Georgia Love has spoken to The Thinkergirls about what it was like for her relationship with Lee Elliott when the finale aired and her mother tragically lost her battle with pancreatic cancer a day later. 

The couple didn't really enjoy a honeymoon period after their relationship finally became public knowledge, the news presenter told the hosts:

"Our second night as a couple was spent with him literally holding me as I screamed and shook for hours and hours and hours."

Georgia praised Lee for the way he supported her as she grieved, adding:

"I really can’t imagine anyone else in the world having been like that with me then... And he didn’t freak out, he stepped up, he messaged everybody I knew that day to say, 'Hi, I’m Lee, I’m Georgia’s boyfriend, I’m just letting you know that his has happened.'"

She also added that while she was obviously going through so much Lee probably also needed some support as well:

"Lee is there, two days into a new relationship, he didn’t know any of my family. He had met my dad and my sister, he had met my mum in hospital, [but] he knew none of my friends, none of my friends even knew I was with him until 24 hours before. No one was there checking on him, no one asking how he was doing.”

Despite what we see on Instagram, things were very tough for the pair during their first six months together:

“It was really hard on him, and it was really hard on our relationship… We had a very rocky first six months, and I’m not afraid to say that.”

She was also asked what she thought the situation would have been like had she chosen Matty J:

"People often ask like sliding doors, what if you’d chosen Matty J, what if you’d chosen someone else? [But] I cannot imagine anyone I’ve ever met in my entire life, being as good as Lee was even just that night."

We somehow love George and Lee even more than we did before!
