While it’s still fresh, Poh maintains she and Jono, 39, remain amicable as they work alongside one another.

‘But Jono and I still work together and are the best of friends,’ she said.

She added that it was the most ‘untraumatic breakup possible.’

She joked that Jamface ‘is a catalogue of failed marriages.’

Speaking of the working with ex-husband Matt back in 2017, Poh told Mamamia: ‘He’s my ex-husband. She’s my best friend. And when we broke up, they got together and it’s all dandy.’

In 2019, she returned to the show as a mentor. And in 2020, Poh gave it one more shot as a contestant in the Back to Win series and placed 6th.
