She was left brokenhearted in 2019 after The Bachelor’s Matt Agnew dumped her on national television. 

But Abbie Chatfield, 25, has proven that time really does heal all wounds by extending an olive branch to Matt, 34, on Instagram.

On Thursday, astrophysicist Matt uploaded a photo of himself patting a horse as he fed the creature at a paddock.

The post, which Matt captioned, ‘Horsing around’, amassed plenty of ‘likes’ from his fans, but it was a double-tap from Abbie that really sent tongues wagging.  

Just last month, Abbie revealed she ‘still cries’ about Matt, who famously chose her love rival Chelsie McLeod during The Bachelor’s tear-jerking finale. 

Speaking on her tell-all podcast It’s A Lot, the blonde confessed:  ‘I told a man that I loved him after like, two months on The Bachelor. That’s quite unwell. That’s not right in the head.

‘I still cry about him sometimes. That’s going to be a Daily Mail headline – that’s fine. Give me free advertising for the podcast, thank you!’

Despite being thoroughly confident he would chose her, Matt said his ‘heart belongs to someone else’ during the final in South Africa – chose fellow chemical engineer Chelsie instead. 

However, the two weren’t meant to be, and broke up just three months after the final episode aired.

Last May, a year after her on-screen heartache, Abbie penned an emotional Instagram post thanking the Matt for the journey they shared together.

She wrote: ‘Finale was filmed a year ago, how?! It’s been the toughest but most rewarding year of my life and I’ll forever be grateful to the experience and also to Matt.

‘It changed my life, and the adversity faced during and after the show is the reason I get to do what I love, and also the reason I got to look the hottest I will ever look.’

She went on to admit that she ‘loved’ Matt and was panicked before she faced him in the finale.

‘I was so scared of what eventually did happen, but I wish I could go back in time and tell little 23-year-old Abbie, ‘Everything will be f***ing great, and your value does not lie in the validation of a man, even if you love him.’

‘Clearly I was shocked at the final result, I didn’t see a need to doubt myself because I didn’t want to ruin any remaining time with Matt second guessing myself, I don’t regret this.

‘When I applied for The Bachelor it was honestly, for a laugh. I didn’t have any way of comprehending what I was about to go through.

‘Even at finale, after I was dumped on le rock, I thought it was the worst thing to happen to me, but now, because of my resilience, I’M FINE!!!!’ she concluded.
