The “journey” is over for another Bachelor couple. Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell – who met on the 2016 season of the show – are officially done.

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go our separate ways,” the couple told People Magazine. “We feel fortunate for the time we had together, and will remain friends with much love and respect for one another. We wish nothing but the best for each other, and ask for your support and understanding at this time.”

The couple had been battling breakup rumours forever with Ben posting this photo on Lauren’s bday.



The good news for Bachelor nation? Rachel’s season starts next Monday. Here’s a trailer to tide you over.
