‘Some days are just days but some days are life changing. On this day last year I received the phone call to say I was getting married. I was going to be on MAFS,’ she wrote.

‘After six months of auditioning, what I had hoped for everyday had finally come true. I never thought I’d be chosen.

‘I was told at the start of this week that if I was getting married I would receive a phone call by Friday. 

‘All day that day I stared at my phone just waiting for it to ring. I said to myself if it doesn’t ring by 5pm then I’ll give up.

‘When 5pm hit I felt so disappointed the phone did not ring. 

‘I put my phone down and went for a walk. I let go of the dream, I was like Kate move on they are not calling you.

‘Then at around 8:30pm that night my phone rang. I expected to hear a voice rejecting me but instead the voice said we found you a match, you’re getting married!! (a reminder to never give up).

‘I honestly was in shock! iIt really wasn’t until I went to bed that night that it sunk in and I cried with joy.

‘I truly hoped for love. A journey of a lifetime had just begun.

‘I may do a few little look backs over the next couple of weeks just stand out memories.’

Kate was paired with Matt, 40, on Season 9 of the series, but the couple failed to hit it off and decided to call it quits before the final vows.

'I'm doing the OnlyFans to show people other sides of me and what I'm really about, as it wasn't shown on MAFS because of my bad edit,' Kate told Daily Mail Australia

In August, the nutritionist revealed she had joined OnlyFans with her twin sister Bec.

The 39-year-old  said she was excited to ‘express all the different sides of her’ on the adult website after her portrayal on MAFS didn’t reflect her true personality.

‘After my MAFS experience I found myself lacking in confidence and afraid to show the real me due to fear of judgement,’ she wrote on Instagram.

‘The show portrayed a character that I felt did not reflect who I truly am as a person. 

‘This is why I’m so excited to be launching my OnlyFans. It will be my opportunity to express all the different sides of me, the unedited version of me.

‘It’s time to show you guys what I’m really about.’
