Nikki responds to rumours she’s now dating Richie

LAST year's Bachelor runner-up, Nikki Gogan, has confirmed she is not dating her former TV love interest, Richie Strahan.

The rumour mill ran wild yesterday after reports suggested that Strahan had reached out to Gogan following his break up with Alex Nation who is now allegedly dating a woman.

Gogan was asked about the rumour on Instagram by a fan and made it clear there is no truth to it whatsoever.

"Are you and Ritchie dating now?" the fan asked.

"Hi no, we aren't x," Gogan replied.

Other Instagram users continued to speculate though with one writing, "I'm sure he has reached out to you for another chance by now. I'm glad you didn't give in".

Earlier this week New Idea reported that Alex Nation had dumped Strahan and was now dating Maegan Luxa, a 31-year-old chef and landscaper from Victoria.

The glossy publication had pictures of the female pair kissing and holding hands during a night out in Melbourne.
