Everyone's talking about the return of Married At First Sight Australia and whether last season's couples of Domenica and Jack and Olivia and Jackson have gone the distance. We reveal all.

Shouting matches, smashed wine glasses, a nude photo leak - and that's just from the dinner parties. The down under version of Married at First Sight UK has plenty of drama to keep viewers entertained. And it's safe to say that UK audiences were particularly invested in season 9's Married at First Sight Australia cast. Be it the hideously attractive Ella and Mitch, the fiery Tamara and Brent or the surprise pairing of Carolina and Daniel.

Similar to Netflix's popular Love is Blind couples, many want to know who is still together from last year's Married At First Sight Australia. In addition to whether the marriages are legally binding. So we've done the research and are finally able to confirm the contestants' current relationship statuses.

Married at First Sight Australia: Who is still together from season 9?

In what may come as a shock to some, we can confirm that Olivia Fraser and Jackson Lonie are no longer after Married At First Sight Australia season 9. On August 9, 2022, a joint Instagram post was shared telling fans that the two had decided to split.

"After a wonderful 10 months together we have decided to go our seperate ways," read the caption. "There has always been a lot of love in our relationship and there will continue to be as we transition into a friendship."

The post also specified that no one was to blame for the end of the relationship - something that the two have continued to insist in interviews since news of the split.

At the beginning of September 2022, Olivia took to her Instagram stories to rubbish rumours Jackson 'dumped' her. "I understand people like to think that I got 'dumped' but it wasn't like that at all," she wrote. "We're adults. We had an adult conversation about how the relationship wasn't working for either of us and we both came to the resolution that splitting up was the only thing left to do.

"There's no 'juicy' story. There's no truth to the 'haha he dumped you' comments people say. It was a peaceful, joint decision."

Two weeks later on a Q&A on his Instagram stories, Jackson acknowledged the dumping rumours too. He explained that "Us splitting had nothing to do with the haters... We had just drifted apart". 

Fans were taken by the two's strong connection that began pretty much as soon as they first locked eyes on each other on their wedding day. The two were arguably the most solid couple throughout the experiment, and post-MAFS we learnt that Melbourne-born Jackson moved to Sydney and to live with Olivia in the beachside town of Avoca (per The Daily Mail)

Olivia - one of the show's more controversial brides - also credited Jackson with having helped her with negative public perception post-filming. The 27-year-old lost her teaching assistant job and was the subject of an online petition for her involvement with the leaked nude photo.

"I’m a shell of a person, honestly" she told 2Day’s Hughesy, Ed & Erin. "Thank God for Jackson, as I would not have survived this without him, and my mum and brother. It’s been hell."

As for their relationship statuses now, we know that Olivia signed up to dating app Hinge and has also been running a successful Only Fans account. Meanwhile Jackson has thrown himself into his new Boxing career.

2. Domenica and Jack

Did they say I Do? Yes | Are they still together? No

It's safe to say that Domenica Calarco and Jack Millar seemed pretty smitten from day one with each other. Bride Dom even went so far as to call Jack "perfect" as they bonded over their love of dogs, vegetarianism and Italian family heritage instantly.

They encountered a few bumps along the way though. Most notably THAT leaked nude photo scandal which came to light at one group dinner party. Though Jack admirably defended his wife - even when the two were on less than great terms.

Sadly the reunion revealed that the two were no longer together and the split is definitely permanent, with no news of a reconciliation in 2023. It was one coupling that fans were particularly sad about as the pair still showed strong signs of chemistry. Dom even admitted that she was "sad" seeing Jack that night and them not being together.

Jack has since moved on with new girlfriend Courtney Stubbs - who appeared on Love Island Australia season 3. He described the new lady is his life as "the woman of my dreams" in one sweet Instagram post.

As for Domenica, a quick scroll through her Instagram suggests she's enjoying the single life still. Whilst Domenica didn't find romantic love, she did come out of the show with a new best friend for life. She and fellow MAFS Australia season 9 contestant Ella May Ding seem thick as thieves and have teamed up together for new podcast Sit With Us.

3. Ella and Mitch

On-off-on-off. Ella May Ding and Mitch Naud's relationship was a real rollercoaster ride on the show. And just when we thought they'd finally decided to stay together once and for all - post-experiment insights suggested otherwise.

According to Ella, Mitch "cut her off" two months after the reunion show was recorded. "I haven’t seen Mitchell since the reunion," she told radio Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa in April 2022. Though it wasn't "straightaway" she said things started to "fizzle out" when “articles hit the media".

She elaborated on The Handbags podcast, that it was an article showing photos of her and fellow groom Brent hanging out at the beach that proved to be the final nail in the coffin.

"The article came out of Brent and I at the beach. Mitchell was waiting for one little thing for me to do wrong for him to just tap out," Ella said. "As soon as they came out, he showed a really ugly side".

Ella clarified that friend and fellow bride Domenica was with Brent and Ella that day. And nothing romantic occured. Nonetheless Mitch went on to block her "on every platform".

After her stint on the show Ella caught the attention of Made in Chelsea star Miles Nazaire. The Brit slid into her DMs and the flirtation led to Ella appearing on the famed E4 show. However, in October 2022, she confirmed that she and Miles had split amicably.

Ella remains single for now, as does Mitch who had uploaded a number of solo photos to his Instagram since Married at First Sight Australia ended.

4. Tamara and Brent

Did they say I Do? Yes | Are they still together? Absolutely not!

Opinionated bride Tamara Djordjevic certainly put husband Brent Leon through his paces on Married At First Sight Australia. And things ultimately looked like they fell apart between the two during the final romantic date before their renewed vows.

Asked if she had any regrets whilst appearing on the show, Tamara quipped: "Probably this whole experiment. From start to finish". It went from bad to worse from here when Brent said that his wife was "always moody". To which she replied: "If you don't want to be somewhere with someone, of course you are going to get p**sed off." Unsurprisingly Brett disembarked the yacht after this admission telling her "I think I'm done, mate."

Any hopes of a reconciliation between the two looked unlikely when the two arrived separately during the reunion filming. And further hopes were dashed when it came to light that bride Tamara had tried to hook up with another groom...

During the final dinner party, a jilted Brent revealed to the group: "Tamara, you tried to pick up Mitch when we got out of the experiment and he rejected you! We saw the call logs and we saw the messages!"

Off-screen Ella also confirmed that Tamara had tried to come between her and Mitch.

"She did a few things in the experiment that didn’t make it to air," Ella shared. "One example, at the retreat it was the final dinner get together and you know, we were all having a drink and stuff and by the end of the evening she’s like, 'Ella and Mitch you guys haven’t had any drama this whole retreat... What about if I said that Mitchell grabbed my a** in the pool today when you weren’t around'."

Tamara denies ever going after Mitch - though it seems the two remain friendly, with Tamara sharing a post of the two in October 2022. As for her dating life, it appears the blonde bride is still single in real life. 

Brent is also newly single after confirming his split from Australian fashion model Taylor Davey. The two began dating in May 2022 after meeting in Las Vegas whilst  attending the Electric Daisy Carnival, a famous electronic music festival. Brent and Taylor shared a number of loved up snaps during their 7-month relationship. However in January 2023, Brent told Daily Mail Australia that the two had gone their separate ways 'a while ago' but remain 'good friends'.

5. Cody and Selina

Did they say I Do? Yes | Are they still together? No

For Cody Bromley, it wasn't instant love - or attraction - with bride Selina Chhaur. And it proved to be quite the hurdle in the couple's first few weeks together, as Selina struggled to come to terms with his confession. But never-the-less intimacy week proved to bring a breakthrough for these two, and by the 7th day the pair happily shared that they had successfully consummated the marriage. Hurrah!

Whilst the rest of their journeys did involve some additional ups and downs - *cough Cody and his untidy dwellings cough*. The two seemed to be really solid by the end of the experiment. But sadly there's no happy ever after to report...

Cody and Selina put on a united front at the reunion dinner party. However groom Cody was the one to call it quits just hours after the cameras stopped rolling.

"I'm gonna call it," he told Selina in the car ride back to the hotel. The words came as a shock to Selina who said that the two had been discussing living together. She told Yahoo: "I was a little bit rattled, like, 'Wait, what's going on? What did you just say? What do you mean you're calling it? Calling what?'And he's like, 'Yeah, I've decided we're just going to break up.'"

Cody confirmed his decision to the experts on the couch, adding that he felt the relationship felt 'forced' and he wanted to end it. In a Instagram post later, he wrote: "The path we walked wasn't an easy one but it was our story and all I'll ever wish for her is happiness."

Selina similarly confirmed her single status in an Instagram post and reflected on her journey. "Although I didn’t find my soulmate I ended up finding the greatest love of all which is Self Love. This #MAFS journey has been an incredible one, to say the least, and I am so grateful for all the blessings and lessons I’ve learnt along the way."

A look at their social media accounts confirm that there's been no reconciliation in 2023. And Cody revealed on his Instagram stories last August that the two haven't talked since the split. 

Responding to a fan's question on whether he was still in contact with Selina, Cody said: "Nah man, Selina's way of dealing with the breakup is to just cut all ties and that's her way of moving on.

"But, it's a damn shame after the experience we went through. It would have been great to have touched base, laugh about the memories but - not my decision."

Whilst he didn't find a wife for life, Cody has found a best friend in Jackson (who is also newly single). The two MAFS Australia castmates have shared a number of snaps of each other hanging out together on Instagram. As for Cody and Selina's relationship statues now - both appear to remain single.

6. Carolina and Dion

Brazilian bride Carolina Schimidt certainly made her mark in season 9 of Married At First Sight Australia. And fans of the show will know that her and Dion Giannarelli did not make it as a married couple after she fell for another contestant. Eeek.

In a shock MAFS twist, the 33-year-old got cosy with co-star Daniel Holmes. And the two hit it off on a few secret behind-the-scenes dates. During a particularly awkward episode the two came out to their fellow contestants and asked if they could rejoin the experiment as a new match. But alas after a cast-wide walk out, the experts agreed that this wasn't to be.

Whilst they weren't matched together, Daniel and Carolina carried on dating post-MAFS. Though in August 2022, it was later confirmed by both parties that the two had parted ways. As of 2023, Carolina appears to still be single - though she's kept in touch with fellow cast mates Olivia, Tamara and Mitch.

As for Dion, he's also moved on since the show. The 34-year-old rekindled his relationship with ex Nikki Walton and seem to be going strong. The two called it quits mere weeks before Dion's stint on the programme. And many accused the entrepreneur of having her as a 'secret girlfriend' whilst filming.

Dion denies this to be the case though. He told Yahoo in March: "No, that's definitely not the case at all. I was single when I entered the show and I was single when I signed up."

Career wise, Dion announced the exciting news in October 2022 that his development company the Giannarelli Group in partnership with the Pelligra Group will be behind the new luxury Ritz-Carlton hotel opening on the Gold Coast in 2026.

7. Jess and Daniel

Did they say I Do? Yes | Are they still together? Absolutely not

Unsurprisingly Jessica Seracino and Daniel Holmes are not still together from Married at First Sight Australia. With Jess losing her groom at the time to fellow contestant Carolina.

Though the two were the last to say 'I Do' in the series, they were one of the quickest pairings to fall apart. At their first dinner party outing, Jess slammed the car door on her husband. And the rest of the night pretty much went downhill from there. Jess came to blows with fellow bride Domenica for calling Daniel a "little bitch". To which Dom replied that Jess was being 'petulant'.

At a later commitment ceremony they called it quits. Jess told the experts: "It clearly isn't working, and I'm not going to fake it and it's never going to work." The florist has been keeping a low-profile since the show and doesn't appear to be dating anyone. Though her social media suggests she keeps in contact with fellow MAFS bride Tamara.

Daniel reflected on his relationship with his ex-bride saying that the energy he experienced with Carolina was "completely different to being around Jess".

"To me, Carolina's vibe is kind of warm. We have a bit of flirtatiousness towards each other, I like that," he said on the show. "There's just chemistry, I don't know."

It was Daniel who confirmed that Carolina and he had split in August 2022 in a note posted on his Instagram account.

"I think it's been obvious for a while we have gone our separate ways," read the caption. "There's no right way to deal with these situations. There's a huge pressure to just hold off going public for as long as possible cause you know all the hate that's gonna come."

He wished Carolina nothing but the best. And like his ex, it seems that Daniel currently remains single.

8. Sam and Al

Bride Samantha Moitzi was looking for a rugged, older gentleman as her perfect partner in the experiment. Instead, the experts paired her with the young but loveable Al Perkins. And it was their age difference and Sam's concerns around his maturity levels that was ultimately the nail in the coffin for these two.

A final make-or-break date led to the couple leaving the experiment at the following commitment ceremony. But it seems that the split was amicable and the two have remained friends.

Whilst he didn't get his happy ending, Al told 9Entertainment that he learnt a lot: "After coming out of the experiment, I do feel confident that I will be a great husband one day. I've grown as a person in this experiment. I need to talk a lot more deep, I've got to be not so surface level."

Following his stint on MAFS, Al went on to join the cast of Love Island Australia 2022. He left the villa with Jess Lursodo but sadly the two are no longer dating. Talking to Taku Chimwaza on the Back To Reality podcast in January 2023, he shared that that it was him who called it quits.

"It was actually me that broke it off with Jess," he said. "We did speak for probably I think it was like over a week and a bit. Once we left the villa. I did go over to her place, I met her mum. And we watched some anime together.

It seemed distance was the issue for the couple, with Al asking himself of the 40 minute journey between them: "Do I want to do this?". It seems Al is currently still single post-breakup.

Back to bride Sam now, who seems very in love with a new mystery man. The two have been linked since July 2022 and Sam has been keen to share snaps of the pair on her social media. 

Replying to a fan's comment in one Instagram post, the reality star said she had finally found a 'genuine connection' with someone who wants the 'same things' as her.

9. Selin and Anthony

With such a strong start at the aisle and throughout their wedding day, fans were hopeful these two would make it. But things started to crumble on the honeymoon after a few disagreements. Anthony Cincotta accused Selin Mengu of bullying behaviour, emasculating him and his vulnerability by calling him "Princess" and asking if he needed a "boo hoo". This was followed by the first dinner party, where a solo Selin gained the girls support for having being 'left' by Anthony on their honeymoon. And let's just say a few co-stars - Tamara and Domenica - weren't afraid to get vocal with Anthony.

Despite the tense situation, the two later apologised to one another. And they decided to stay and work on the relationship at the first commitment ceremony. During intimacy week the two grew close again, with Anthony even moving back in with his bride. But sadly it was antics at another dinner party which proved to be the last straw.

Both voiced their frustrations on the sofa, with expert John Aitken agreeing their outburst at the dinner was "heated" and "full on". Anthony revealed he wanted to leave, as did Selin who said: "Honestly, I don't know what else I can say. I wrote 'I'm done'."

A quick peak through their social media accounts and it seems that Selin is focusing on mum life. Meanwhile, Anthony has an exciting 2023 ahead of him.

The dad-of-one made his relationship with new girlfriend Katie public in April 2022 and eight months later the two are expecting their first child together. Anthony shared the exciting announcement on Christmas Day 2022, alongside a photo of Katie and Anthony with his daughter Gabby holding up the ultrasound.

Anthony confirmed they were expecting a baby boy - who they can't wait to meet. He suggested that Katie fell pregnany shortly after their trip to Italy, blaming the romance of Venice.

10. Holly and Andrew

Holly Greenstein and Andrew's union was the first to come to an end on Married At First Sight Australia. And so ugly was the parting that motivational speaker Andrew decided against returning to the sofa to let his bride know he was leaving.

Things turned sour on the honeymoon when Andrew said that he wasn't feeling the intimacy and connection with Holly in the bedroom. In one brutal blow he told her he had experienced more passion with a one night stand than with his new wife between the sheets. Ouch.

Hurt but willing to overlook his comments for the sake of the relationship, Holly gave Andrew another shot. But it was during confessions week when Holly shared her desires to have children ASAP that Andrew realised it wasn't for him.

A blazing row followed. And at the dinner party, Andrew managed to persuade his fellow contestants that Holly was the one in the wrong. Which made for some uncomfortable viewing. A solo Holly at the next commitment ceremony shared how she was disappointed that the group didn't have her back and shared her side of the story. In a heartfelt letter she shared that Andrew "took her voice" and that she was now reclaiming it by leaving the experiment.

It's safe to say the two haven't reconciled. And rather interestingly Holly's Instagram doesn't feature a single photo of Andrew or her together. But in good news, Holly has found someone and seems much happier with her new beau. She and her new partner seem to enjoy travelling the world together, frequently posting images of their trips away.

11. Matt and Kate

Did they say I Do? Yes | Are they still together? No

No sadly, Kate Laidlow and Matt Ridley are not still together from Married At First Sight Australia season 9. The marriage was awkward with a capital A from the offset - with the two having very different tolerance levels when it came to being affectionate and intimate. And it's safe to say that Kate - whose never been in a relationship - felt it was moving too fast.

The blonde bride accused Matt of being delusional when he surpised her with perfume to to celebrate their "three-week anniversary". They struggled through another week but a rejected Matt hit the booze hard one night, which left Kate furious.

At the commitment ceremony, Kate and Matt both wrote to leave. Matt told the experts he was a "realist" who didn't see how the two could make it work.

MAFS fans will be pleased to learn that Matt has since found love with a new lady. In December 2022, he confirmed he was happily in a relationship, describing the last three months with girlfriend Dominique as 'the best of his life'. The two recently enjoyed a trip to Noosa in Queensland.

As for Kate, she reflected on her Married at Frist Sight Australia experience one year on. Posting on October 12, 2022, she shared a montage of her journey and gave insight into the realities of what that entailled.

"The way the wedding was edited was a surprise to me," read the caption. "I knew then that this experience was not going be in my favour. I felt like like I was set up to be bullied. I felt betrayed by people I trusted my life with. The nasty comments started flowing in.

"I’m not saying this to get sympathy and definitely don’t won’t to dwell on things," she continued. "But I think people should know the reality of reality tv isn’t always amazing.

"So in summary the last year hasn’t been easy. Yes the experience did leave me broken but I refused to let it beat me. I was determined to stay strong. I have looked at the positives where I can. I am grateful for the people I’ve met and the experiences I have had. I have definitely grown as a person and have become stronger. I will still have my down days and the experience will be with me forever but I am hopeful for brighter days ahead."

Kate conclued that she as yet still had not found love but "YES I still have hope".
