Married At First Sight’s Duncan finally confirms that he’s split from Alyssa and admits that the single mum won’t even return his messages
Married At First Sight’s Duncan James and Alyssa Barmonde have called it quits.
Duncan, 36, confirmed the sad news at the unofficial MAFS reunion hosted by Nova FM’s Fitzy & Wippa at the Grounds of Alexandria restaurant this week.
‘During the week I reached out to Alyssa to check in on how she was,’ he told Nova host Kate Ritchie.
‘I said that I would be there for her and have a phone call, or if there was something I could do to help I would, but I didn’t get a reply.’
Duncan and Alyssa started off as one of the strongest couples in the experiment.

But this week, Daily Mail Australia revealed that the cyber security sales director is set to brutally give the mother-of-one the boot at their final vows.
According to an on-set spy, Alyssa was left in tears as Duncan blindsided her when he revealed his decision to walk away from their relationship.
The love-struck bride is understood to be shattered that she was ‘strung along’ when it seemed the producers knew Duncan had no intention of sticking by her side.
A source close to the devastated bride revealed, ‘Alyssa just didn’t understand why she was strung along.’
‘Alyssa knew things were never going to work out with Duncan, as much as she wanted them to. They both live different lives.’

The source claimed that Alyssa was pressured her to say ‘yes’ by producers, when they ‘clearly knew Duncan would be dumping her. It wasn’t fair’.
Duncan’s bombshell confession left Alyssa visibly crushed, as he coldly told her, ‘I don’t want to hurt you, and I don’t want to continue getting hurt.’
Daily Mail Australia understands that Alyssa and Duncan have only exchanged texts ‘once or twice’ since the show wrapped filming, and things are worse than imagined.
‘They’re not even on talking terms at the moment,’ another source let slip.
‘They both agreed that it was for the best not to do any joint interviews and aren’t even pretending to be together.’
Despite odds stacked against them, Tahnee Cook and Ollie Skelton and Melinda Willis and Layton Mills are the only two MAFS couples to continue their relationship outside of the experiment.
