Brand-new Bachelor couple Matt Agnew and Chelsie McLeod have been spotted at Sydney airport, and it appears that the gloss of their budding romance may have already worn off.

In photos taken on Friday, one day after the astrophysicist declared his love for the chemical engineer in the epic finale of the reality TV series, Matt, 32, can be seen chatting up a storm with two unknown women.

Elsewhere, his lady love Chelsie, 28, was seemingly left to carry their bags.

Matt, dressed in a casual denim shirt and black jeans, smiled and looked to be enjoying his conversation with the pair of brunettes.

It appears that old habits die hard for the handsome academic, who until recently spent his time schmoozing with a bevvy of beautiful bachelorettes in the Bachelor mansion.

Meanwhile, Chelsie - sporting a matching baby pink top and singlet combo - juggled her chic purse as well as a large duffle bag.

Not only was Chelsie in charge of luggage, but she was also left to face the awaiting paparazzi alone.

Matt eventually rejoined Chelsie as they made their way through the terminal, no doubt on the way to their shared home city, Melbourne.

Has our dashing Bachelor forgotten his manners so soon? Here’s hoping he gave his number one lady the window seat on the plane.

Earlier that same day, Matt confessed to Yahoo Lifestyle that he deliberately started rumours about himself ahead of the show’s finale.

In another exclusive, runner up Abbie Chatfield - who Matt dumped on national TV - revealed how both the Bachelor and producers duped her into believing that she had won.

Abbie also opened up about the ‘horrible’ run-in she had with Matt at a radio station that left her in tears.
