Things are heating up in reality land after a Bachie star took to Instagram to take a swipe at a Married At First Sight’s Dean Wells. 

Lee Elliott, who found love on the 2017 series of The Bachelorette with Georgia Love, didn’t hold back when he discovered that Dean Wells, from the 2018 season of MAFS, is set to appear on Channel 10’s Dancing With The Stars.

The 38-year-old took to his Instagram stories to post a photo which showed all of the cast blurred out apart from Dean, alongside the text: “When did this country start celebrating intolerable, sexist, chauvinistic bigots?”

The story has now expired but not before a plethora of fans screenshotted it after being shocked at the outburst. 

Dean Wells became one of the breakout stars of Married at First Sight in 2018 after he cheated on his wife, Tracey Jewel, with Davina Rankin. 

In a shock twist, Dean then desperately tried to win Tracey back towards the end of the show.

Earlier this week, Ryan Gallagher, who was married to Davina Rankin on the show before she cheated with Dean Wells, spilled all the beans about the affair in the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!.

He also revealed his shock when Davina dropped a bombshell on him as they were on the way back from their luxurious honeymoon. 

“We were on the honeymoon, and we were intimate and stuff on the honeymoon. You sort of get lost in the moment,” Ryan told his fellow campmates. 

“And as we were flying back from the honeymoon, as we were landing, she goes: ‘You know, when we get back we meet other people and you can hook up with anyone’.

“And I was like: ‘I don't think that...!’”
