Married at First Sight bride Samantha Jayne opened up about how she discovered her ex-husband had been cheating on her, after the pair were married for 10 years.

"It was all great at the start," she explained.

"But one day I actually had my baby on my hip and my toddler running around, and I was decluttering."

That's when she made the shocking discovery, which ultimately led to her divorce.


"I discovered sim cards, for lots of different numbers. That was pretty much the evidence of my husband cheating on me for more than five years.

"It was so humiliating. I packed my bags, grabbed the kids and I was out."

Samantha and Cameron 'well suited'

The mum of two was matched with crane operator Cameron by the MAFS relationship experts, and by all accounts seemed to hit it off quite well on their wedding day.

Relationship expert at eharmony Sharon Draper also believes the pair are "well suited".

"I’m keen to see how Samantha and Cameron move through their journey together," Sharon tells Yahoo Lifestyle.

"They hit it off straight away, the only bump was more a communication issue as Cameron digested Samantha’s personal situation.

"If he can be open about how he is feeling and let go of his controlled way of living, I think their personalities are very well suited and their values align beautifully."

And yet, a teaser clip for the show has some fans believing things may not end well for Samantha and Cameron despite their initial attraction.

MAFS editing fail accidentally ruins affair storyline

During the first episode of the 2021 season, the show revealed there would be an affair at some point and while they blurred out the couple, Tuesday night's MAFS episode has appeared to confirm who that groom is.

In the footage, you can see a muscly arm with a huge tattoo that is seen stroking a brunette woman's leg and that tattoo seems to match Cameron's ink.

At this stage in the show, there are only two brunettes, they are Coco Stedman and Belinda Vickers, however, it's possible the woman is an intruder who will join the cast later in the show.

Married at First Sight continues on Channel Nine on Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30pm.
