The Gogglebox star disappointed the nation when she chose personal trainer, Carlin Sterritt.

Now fans have flocked to social media to post the sunflower emoji in support of Hanly.

Why sunflowers? Hanly appeared on the series opener of the show with a big bunch of sunflowers for Angie and even showcased one he has tattooed on his hand.

The TV star actually said he views sunflowers as a cosmic sign from her grandmother, Nanny Fae.

In what could be the most heartbreaking farewell we’ve seen on The Bachelorette, a crying Angie told Timm that he just isn’t for her.

“I love everything that we’ve had and a piece of me is like, I can’t picture my life without you, I can’t,” she said through tears.

“I don’t want you to not be in my life.”

And while Timm maintained a straight face, it was clear he was devastated.

“I’ll be sliding the DMs,” he joked, trying to lighten the mood.

Soon after Angie confessed her love for Carlin at the Fig Tree Restaurant in Byron Bay.

She said: “I’m just gonna be honest, you’re usually not my type of guy. You’re very put together and I’m not put together. I’m not perfect.”

“I get dressed up in pretty dresses and stuff but I am a f**king mess… I’m just a bit of a grub.”
