The now infamous former Australian Bachelor Blake Garvey and his second runner up Louise Pillidge, have officially called it quits after 18 months together.

In an exclusive interview with New Idea, Blake described the issues they were facing in their relationship.

“We were walking on eggshells around each other, always trying to say the right thing,” Garvey said.

Pillidge said it was Garvey's decision to split in the end, but said deep down she knew Garvey was right.

“Weirdly, we’re supporting each other through this”, Pillidge said.

Many remember Garvey for proposing and then breaking up with future Bachelorette Sam Frost.
