MAFS' Alyssa Barmonde speaks out about romance with famous 'new man'

EXCLUSIVE: The pair have reportedly been ‘spending a lot of time together lately’.

Married At First Sight’s Alyssa Barmonde appears to have well and truly moved on from her short-lived ‘marriage’ to Duncan James on the reality show earlier this year.

A source tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the mum-of-one has grown close to fellow reality star Nick Chamberlain, who fans may remember from Elly Miles’ season of The Bachelorette in 2020.

“They’re not official or anything like that, but they have been spending a lot of time together lately,” our insider shares.

Alyssa first hinted at a romance between the pair last month when she posted a selfie with Nick on her Instagram Story at RNB Fridays Presents Fridayz Live alongside the caption: “Look who I found 🥰”

After the snap circulated in various reality TV groups on Facebook last week, with fans assuming they are a couple, Alyssa told Yahoo Lifestyle she and Nick are “just friends”.


Alyssa also revealed during an Instagram Q&A on Sunday night that she is “not in a relationship”. However, she posted a side-eye emoji when asked if she is currently dating anyone.

Another fan asked her about her “type”, to which she shared that she likes tattoos and “someone with banter”.

“I told [the MAFS producers] my celeb crush was Pete Davidson,” she added.

Who is still together from season 10?

Eight months on from when this year’s season of MAFS finished airing on TV, Tahnee Cook and Ollie Skelton are the only couple who are still together.

Melinda Willis and Layton Mills announced in October that they had decided to “take time apart” and separate after one year together.

“We still care very deeply for each other and this doesn't mean our lives can't come back together, but as of now, we think this decision is for the best,” they wrote on Instagram.


Meanwhile, co-stars Duncan James and Evelyn Ellis are still going strong after they went public with their relationship in May.

The pair moved into a luxury $3.2 million townhouse in Sydney's affluent Balmain in August and surprised fans when they dressed up as each other for Halloween.
