You can say goodbye to any hopes you have of matching crocheted getups or couple workouts on Insta because Married at First Sight Australia’s favourite whacky couple Patrick Dwyer and Belinda Vickers have split. Sad emoji.
The MAFS stars, who met on the latest season of the infamous social experiment, both shared an identical statement to their Instagram stories where they confirmed they “have gone [their] separate ways”.
“We have enjoyed a relationship together for over 9 months, however we do not want the same things in love and life,” the former couple wrote. “We appreciate all the love and support we have received through our journey.”
The news comes after fans noticed that Patrick, 27, and Belinda, 29, had been missing from each other’s socials. Patty even unfollowed the sales manager on Instagram – way to rub salt in the wound, Pat!
And while we are absolutely devo at the news, another MAFS contestant told So Dramatic! with Megan Pustetto that they aren’t as surprised as us by the split because “[Belinda] was never into him”. Yikes!
Maybe the personal trainer was too immature for her or maybe he finally put up a fight about the OTT couples outfits they’ve been sporting lately.
Unlike many of the other couples on the show, Patrick and Belinda chose to take things slowly throughout Married at First Sight, especially when it came to intimacy. This wasn’t helped by the fact that Bel allegedly had never been in a relo before, but a little birdy told us Little Miss Not So Innocent had a 73-year-old boyfriend prior to filming the reality show!
While the couple decided not to move in together following their stint on MAFS, the pair both live in Melbourne, so that’s sure to make for some awkward run-ins at the local Woollies.
We wish both Patrick and Belinda all the best moving forward.
