The Bachelorette: Sisters Elly and Becky Miles begin filming in Sydney

The Bachelorette began filming its sixth season at the famous Bachelor mansion in Oxford Falls, Sydney, on Wednesday night.

Exclusive photos obtained by Daily Mail Australia show this year’s two Bachelorettes, sisters Elly and Becky Miles, meeting their suitors on the red carpet.

Both women wore glamorous cocktail dresses despite the chilly weather, as a team of staffers made sure the production met COVID-19 safety standards.

Younger sister Elly, 25, who placed fourth on Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor last year, wore a glittering gold dress for the first night of filming.

Meanwhile, 30-year-old Becky, a defence contracting specialist who has never appeared on reality TV before, looked stylish in a red frock.

The siblings met a variety of handsome suitors during the shoot, which went on until the early hours of the morning.

A common theme of the introductions was the men chivalrously handing over their jackets because Elly and Becky were so cold.

Several of the men greeted both women at once, while others were seemingly only introduced to one of the sisters.

This may be because some suitors were cast with one sister in mind.

It’s unclear if the contestants were told ahead of time they would be greeting two Bachelorettes, as previous seasons have only ever had one lead.

While The Bachelorette New Zealand had two women searching for love earlier this year, two sisters is a world first for the franchise.

The pair reportedly went into lockdown ahead of filming.

Elly, who works as a nurse, said on Tuesday: ‘I’m looking for a man that is keen to keep up with my adventurous lifestyle.

‘I’d love to find a best mate who has a positive attitude, kind nature and who is motivated to be the best person they can be.’

The bubbly blonde, who was a fan favourite on The Bachelor season seven, added that she would like to meet ‘someone who is always up for a laugh’.

For Becky, it was her sister who encouraged her to try the reality TV route to dating.

‘I never thought I’d do anything like this, but Elly’s always pushed me outside of my comfort zone so with my sister by my side – I thought why not, let’s give it a crack at finding love,’ she said.

Becky, who has recently suffered a heartbreak, is looking for someone honest and loyal, and who has good ‘banter’.

After appearing on The Bachelor last year, Elly was linked to Love Island star Adam Farrugia, whom she stepped out with at a fashion show in Brisbane.

However, they said at the time that they were ‘just mates’.

Late last year, she was also spotted on the dating app Bumble.
