Matthew, 29, appeared on Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa on Thursday for his first interview since leaving the show, debuting his new girlfriend and talking about his split with Lauren. 

‘There’s been relentless contact towards me and I actually asked her to stop contacting me a couple of weeks ago,’ he claimed, when asked whether he’s been in touch with Lauren since filming the show. 

When asked whether Lauren seemed aggressive and upset in the messages, Matt said ‘yes’.

Matt claimed he began receiving Lauren’s messages before MAFS went to air, and that the content of the texts had nothing to do with the way they were being portrayed on the show.

Rubbing salt into Lauren’s wounds, Matt also used the interview as an opportunity to debut his new girlfriend Annabelle, who he met not long after leaving MAFS last year. 

‘It’s ironic, I got everything I asked for in the experiment, I just had to leave the experiment to get it,’ he mused when quizzed about his new love story.

British-born Annabelle revealed she met Matt at wrestling training in December, and has still never watched MAFS.

The brunette beauty also revealed that Matt told her he was starring on MAFS by showing her an advertisement for the show, in which he was seen running through a hedge maze looking for a bride. 

‘We started getting on and he showed me a video of [the MAFS contestants] running through mazes and I’m like, ‘What is this, a gardening show?’

‘It’s a bit weird’, she explained when asked how it feels to be dating a reality star.
