Australia’s original Bachelorette, Sam Frost, and her beau Sasha Mielczarek have decided to call it a day. 

“After 18 months together, Sam Frost and Sasha Mielczarek have come to a mutual decision to end their relationship,” the statement released via her manager on Tuesday said.

“It is important to stress that there is no bitterness or scandal. They have just come to the realisation that the best way forward, is to separate.

“They wholeheartedly respect and cherish the friendship they have for one another which will continue moving forward. They wish to thank everyone for their love and support over the past 18 months.”

They had met on the first season of The Bachelorette after former star of The Bachelor, Blake Garvey, unceremoniously dumped Frost in 2014.

Recent photos of Mielczarek with another “mystery” woman on the Gold Coast drove rumours of infidelity, but the couple say that was not the cause of the break-up.
