MAFS EXCLUSIVE: Timothy and Andrea 'spending an increasing amount of time together'

The pair have been spotted out together several times since filming wrapped on Married at First Sight.

In another bombshell twist for this year's season of Married At First Sight, rumours are flying that participants Timothy Smith, 51, and Andrea Thompson, also 51, may now be dating.

Yahoo Lifestyle understands that the pair, who both split from their partners on the show, have been “spending an increasing amount of time together” recently, and although neither of them has confirmed or denied being in a romantic relationship, fans have also started speculating that something may be going on between them following several sightings out in public.

Yahoo Lifestyle obtained a picture of the pair shopping and running errands together on Chapel Street last week, joined by a younger woman, believed to be Andrea's daughter Evie.

The rumours come after Timothy's match from the show Lucinda Light shut down speculation that they have reconnected since filming ended.

“[We] support each other and make sure we’re checking in. I’m so grateful for Tim in my life, actually,” Lucinda told Woman's Day last week.


Timothy has also sung Lucinda's praises post-experiment, saying the two are still close friends.

"It's amazing when we go to random pubs in the middle of nowhere. How many people actually love Lu. She's just one of the most amazing people I've ever met," Timothy said to Star 104.5’s Gina and Matty. "You can't help but soften and just be a better person around Lu."

Lucinda praises Andrea: 'Soul sister'

The dating rumours come after Lucinda's recent Instagram post celebrating her close friendship with Andrea.

"I changed my flight to Byron Bay right after leaving the experiment and headed straight to Andi’s place on the Sunshine Coast," she captioned the images of the pair. "What an amazing time we had, talking day and night, dining, going to the beach, doing our hair, giggling, and just being silly soul sisters."

Lucinda went on to say the two established a close bond from the moment they met on the hen's night.

"Andi has been there for me since the hen's night, and I adore her! Andi~ you’re incredibly beautiful, both inside and out! You’re a quirky, kind, and a creative soul, just my type of sweetheart," she continued.

"Thank you for welcoming me into your beautiful boho beach shack and embracing me with open arms, angel. You feel like home after this unique experience we shared. Love you!"
