The split may come as a shock to FWAW viewers as Ben and Leish fell into a passionate love affair this season, often sneaking away to steal kisses.
The hospital administrator fell into some hot water with the other women vying for the farmer’s heart after they caught her sneaking into his bedroom late at night.
She caught the NSW dairy farmer’s eye right off the bat, and was invited to come to his farm 24 hours ahead of everyone else.

And this favouritism was obvious to all the contestants when Ben gravitated towards Leish and shared sneaky goodnight kisses with her.
In the finale, Ben confessed to Leish: ‘We’ve shared so many firsts with one another. The first date, the first to come to the farm and the first kiss.
‘From the moment I met you, you’ve always been on my mind. Leish, I’ve fallen madly in love with you and I’d love for you to run away with me and start this next chapter of our lives together.’
