Some followers in the comments section believe that the woman in the picture could be season 1 contestant Michelle Reddy, who is also a keen horse rider. 

But previously speaking to Channel24, Lee revealed that his new girlfriend is a doctor and that he had met her before being cast on the reality TV dating show.

"We recently got in touch and starting hitting things off again," Lee told Channel24 in July. 

This is the second time Lee has shared a photo of his girlfriend, in a previous Instagram post, he shared a photo of the mystery brunette lounging poolside, with a large-brim hat covering her face.
