Bach­e­lor brings his love home

The Advertiser - - CONFIDENTIAL -

THE Bach­e­lor star Matty “J” John­son brought his re­al­ity show love Laura Byrne to his home­town for the first time yes­ter­day for the Peo­ple’s Choice Undies Run.

The pho­to­genic cou­ple were swamped by ea­ger fans at the an­nual char­ity event in the East End, which raises aware­ness and funds for bowel can­cer re­search.

“It’s our first trip to­gether in Ade­laide, which is nice... tak­ing her to my home state, where I was’s great to be here,” says Port Au­gusta-born Matty. The ladies of Ade­laide were kept in sus­pense as hunky Matty ini­tially de­cided to keep his shirt on.

“I didn’t know if it’d be a lit­tle too self-in­dul­gent to take the sin­glet off,” he ex­plains. “But I will be tak­ing it off dur­ing the race; min­i­mal cloth­ing for max­i­mum speed.”

Laura adds with a laugh: “I was sur­prised he wanted to run in a shirt, peo­ple won’t recog­nise him.”

It’s set to be busy year for Matty, who’ll be fill­ing in for The Liv­ing Room co-host Dr Chris Brown when the TV vet is away for Ten’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

“It’s mas­sive shoes to fill,” he says.
