They were Australia’s favourite Married At First Sight couple, but the tyranny of distance proved too much for loveable Melissa and John, who lived in the Mornington Peninsula and Altona (apparently a couple of hours’ drive apart) respectively.
Just one month after confirming their post-show breakup, Melissa Walsh has found a new man: artist Fred Whitson, the Daily Mail reports.
She went public with her new relationship on Instagram this week, posting the below photo showing the pair on a romantic fireside date:
Whitson has also flaunted his new flame on Instagram:
The world Australian reality TV devotees mourned when Melissa and John announced their breakup in March.
“It has been a very difficult decision and it makes us both very sad to say we have decided to no longer continue as a couple,” their statement read. “We still have the utmost respect for each other but have significant differences in our lives and expectations in relationships.”
We look forward to seeing John again in season three.
