In a joint statement, John and Melissa said: ‘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.

‘We still have the utmost respect for each other but have found significant differences in our lives and expectations in relationships.

‘We have spoken at length about how to make it work and have been spending time with each other to let our relationship unfold but both agree it doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere.

‘We still care deeply for each other as friends and will never forget the incredible times we have had together,’ they concluded.

Following a string of post-show breakups, it appeared that Melissa and John were the ‘success story’ from this year’s Married At First Sight.

However, Melissa insisted that she wanted to be ‘fully transparent’ with viewers and confirm they were no longer together. 

In her own personal statement, she wrote: ‘We know there’s been a lot of speculation about whether we are together any more and wanted to be fully transparent and let you know where our relationship is at.’

Melissa also praised John as ‘wonderful and kind’, claiming that she ‘could not have gone through this process with anybody else.’ 

She added: ‘I am very disappointed that it hasn’t worked as I went into the experiment looking for true love.

‘I had been through hell with my last marriage as you know and thought I wasn’t meant to have a relationship ever again. 

‘Being part of this experiment was the best thing I have ever done as it reminded me that perhaps there is a love out there for me and I thank Married at First Sight for opening my world again to love.’

JOHN’S STATEMENT 

‘I had a fantastic time with Melissa on Married At First Sight. We really loved spending time together and getting to know each other and had an instant connection. We lived together so easily and it reminded us both how wonderful it is to be with a partner. We thought there would be some issues when we got into the real world outside but decided to give it a go and see it there was true feelings between us.’ 

MELISSA’S STATEMENT 

‘As you can all see, John and I have had an amazing experience together over the past six months. You have followed our journey and saw our caring for each other grow over the experiment… We know there’s been a lot of speculation about whether we are together any more and wanted to be fully transparent and let you know where our relationship is at as you have all been so encouraging and supportive of the two of us.’
