Laura Byrne admits that she had a regular fling with a Bachelorette star before meeting Matty ‘J’ Johnson: ‘He was my Wednesday guy!’
Laura Byrne and Matty ‘J’ Johnson are one of the most successful couples to come out of The Bachelor.
But Matty isn’t the first star from the franchise that Laura’s enjoyed a relationship with.

‘The best friends with benefits that I ever had, is a guy who I dated, many years ago,’ she told co-host Brittany Hockley.
‘I dated a guy who was on The Bachelorette,’ she added, leaving Brittany shocked.
‘I used to call him my “Wednesday night guy”. It was never a weekend relationship,’ she explained.
‘It was never good enough to be a Friday night or a Saturday night. We both just knew, on a Wednesday, we’d go and get sushi, we’d have some great sex, we’d have a great time, I’d have a sleepover, I’d get up in the morning and I’d go to work.’

Laura said that it lasted for six months before fizzling out, but refused to give any details on which season of The Bachelorette he starred on.
Matty J appeared on Georgia Love’s season of The Bachelorette in 2016, before becoming The Bachelor himself in 2017.
The only seasons of The Bachelorette to air before Laura joined the franchise were Sam Frost’s and then Georgia’s, with Matty.

However, it’s unclear if Laura’s mystery fling had already been on The Bachelorette when they were hooking-up, or if he appeared on the show much later, after Laura had already found love with Matty.
Matty and Laura share daughters Marlie-Mae, two, and Lola, one, together.
They got engaged while on holiday in Fiji in April 2018.
Laura co-hosts the popular podcast Life Uncut for ARN, and Matty hosts a financial podcast called The Penny Drops.
