Last Wednesday Art Green and Matilda Rice celebrated the first day they met on set at a Karaka mansion a year ago.

Rice won Green's heart after two months of reality television, and obstacles called Chrystal Chenery and Dani Robinson, and the final rose ceremony.

Since then, the couple have attended a large number of events around town plus romantic island and camping getaways.

Green, 27, posted the anniversary to his Instagram account on Wednesday with the message: "It's been just over a year since I met this kid. Thanks for making life great."

Meanwhile, around the traps, speculation has grown that the couple have moved in together. What a perfect anniversary story that would be.

A happy Rice, 25, told Spy they hadn't officially but "we spend pretty much every night at each other's flats".

So who will be the next Bachelor and the next bevy of beauties looking for love?

A TV3 spokesperson told Spy that filming has not begun yet as details were still being finalised.

Spy understands the Bachelor is selected, but the Bachelorettes are not quite settled.

Meanwhile, just days after PJ Harding declared her love for Aussie beau Michael Batty in Woman's Day, Spy can reveal the couple are taking the next step.

Batty has officially quit his radio job in Australia and moved to New Zealand to be with the ZM host and the pair signed a lease on a property together this week.
