Bach runner-up Bella Varelis was as furious as the rest of the nation by Locky Gilbert’s double “I love you” in last week’s dramatic finale.

The 25-year-old Sydneysider didn’t just stop at her iconic “Can I leave now?” line after being dumped on national television, revealing to fellow Bach alum Laura Byrne and Brittany Hockley that she also vented her frustrations in a text to Locky two days after the finale was filmed.

Opening up on their podcast Life Uncut, the marketing manager said she was “pretty angry” when she fired off a strongly-worded message to the former Survivor star, going on to reveal part of what it said.

It had been a tumultuous time for Bella during the season. After clashing with former house bestie and winner Irena Srbinovska, Locky had told her he was “falling in love with her”, leaving her shocked when he broke her heart in the finale.

Locky has since admitted – in a first for the franchise – that he was in love with both women, but saw a stronger future with Irena, 30.

Since the finale aired, Bella has opened up about her heartache, explaining today that she couldn’t help herself in messaging the reality star.

“I’ve sent him a message, I haven’t told anyone that,” she told the Life Uncut podcast.

“I did send him a message after just to be like, I mean, it was like two days after, I was devastated, I was shattered, I was upset, I was angry.

“It was a pretty angry text, to be honest.

“The first part was like, ‘I feel like I’ve lost my best friend not just my boyfriend. It was a relationship for me.’”

Elsewhere in the podcast, Bella revealed she is no longer in love with Locky, but has her moments when emotions bubble over.

“Obviously … there are moments, when I thought on Friday, ‘I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine’. Go to dinner with the girlfriends, had champagne and three minutes later I was bawling my eyes out,” she said.

“I think I just genuinely thought he was in love with me and I think watching it back was a lot.”

Her candid admission today comes after she revealed a chunk of her final conversation with Locky was left on the cutting room floor.

In a follow-up interview with Pedestrian, when asked if Locky gave her a proper goodbye after his teary break-up and her “Can I leave?” line, she said it was a lot more R-rated than we saw.

“Yeah, he just let me walk off. I did actually hear him scream, “F**k!” (laughs). As I was walking off, halfway up the driveway, he screamed, “f**k” at the top his lungs and I didn’t turn around. I remember my producer looking at me and I was just like, ‘Don’t’,” she said.

Viewers watched as Bella was completely blindsided by Locky dumping her in the end.

“This is it? I just don’t get it. Yesterday, you told me you were in love with me,” she said tersely when Locky confessed he couldn’t see things working with her.

“Who does that to someone who tells them they’re in love with them and then …?”, Bella wondered when she returned to the limo to take her home.

Locky and winner Irena – who he confessed he felt had a better idea of what she wanted out of the relationship – are still together and as loved-up as ever.
