“If they let you swap, would u (sic) do it?” Mikey asks Stacey, suggesting that he would ask the show’s producers to begin the process of a couple swap.
As their exchange continues, Mikey tells Stacey how much he would like to kiss the 25-year-old mother of two, the stars appearing to discuss staying the night together behind their spouses’ back.
The incriminating evidence is undoubtedly Stacey’s message to Mikey, where she asks, “are you coming tonight?” before calling him out for leaving the next morning without giving her a proper goodbye.
After the story got out, Mikey confirmed to news.com.au that the pair did in fact have a "one night stand".
“I can confirm we did have sex, but it was clearly after Natasha and I had agreed with producers that our relationship was over, and Natasha knew we weren’t together,” he told the outlet, although he remained tight-lipped on the details of the encounter. “I actually didn’t want this (story) out as it’s not the best way to end my time on the show, but it did happen.”
Although Stacey later told Woman's Day, “Nothing happened between Mikey and I. No sexual relations. Nothing. I can guarantee that".

Last week, Mikey was quizzed after he hinted to an affair occurring on the show while speaking to Fitzy and Wippa. When the radio duo asked the star whether he would make a move on Stacey in a ‘cheating’ scandal, he instantly downplayed the affair, without ruling the possibility out completely.
"You know what? Probably not. She's not my kind of girl. Like, I did say I didn't like high-maintenance girls that are a lot of work. But she's still attractive,” he said.
He then cheekily added: “[But] give me a few beers and I'll go out and there's not much I wouldn't hit!”
Pembroke then confirmed that after incidents in past seasons, there is now protocol when it comes to partner-swapping on MAFS. Participants must now ask producers for permission and are also required to ask the other person in the relationship if they’re ok with them making advances on their spouse. Talk about awkward!
