Bill Shorten’s wife, Chloe, has been touted as his secret weapon on the campaign trail this election, and there’s no doubt her presence was a boon for the 6pm news bulletins. Now photographer Tim Bauer has shared a more intimate moment between the pair on his Instagram profile. Bauer writes: “Had a shoot last week with Bill Shorten for a magazine cover that’s coming out this week I think. I asked if his wife and bestie Chloe if she would like some together and this is what happened. A cute couple putting politics aside.”

Posted as a video, the image looks like it could be on the poster for a romantic comedy.
