The Biggest Loser's Leigh and Lara call it quits

Leigh and Lara call it quits

They lost a total of almost 100kg on TV and their love was growing by the day... or so we all thought.

With a truly incredible transformation and their whole lives ahead of them, Leigh Westren and Lara Whalan were dubbed the “hot couple” on this year’s The Biggest Loser. Openly talking about their plans to marry, the pair won the hearts of viewers everywhere.

The happy couple were expected to make their engagement official in last week’s finale – Lara referred to Leigh’s parents as the “in-laws” throughout the series and confided in friends that she wanted to start a family with the man of her dreams – but the announcement never came. In a shocking twist, speculation is now rife that Lara, 25, called it quits on her relationship with Leigh, 23, within days of The Biggest Loser: Families finale.

What happened? She has told friends she believed Leigh may have “spent the night with another woman” since leaving the show, revelling in being “hot” for the first time in his life. Lara has also apparently kicked her DJ boyfriend out of the home they shared with her parents in the northern Sydney suburb of Turramurra.

When contacted by Woman’s Day, Leigh denied cheating or splitting with Lara, and maintains he hasn’t moved out of her house. But his mother, Sharlene Westren, confirmed the couple are now living separately. Leigh and Lara, who are believed to have sold their engagement story for a substantial fee, had previously spruiked their relationship on the back of The Biggest Loser.

“[Leigh] has to save for an engagement ring. We have to save for a wedding,” Lara recently told reporters. “If we get any help from the magazines, we will consider all offers.”
Lara is said to be devastated by the break-up but thought she had no option but to end their three-year romance.“Lara is absolutely heartbroken,” says a close friend. “All she has ever wanted is to marry Leigh and start a family and now she just doesn’t know what to do.”
