Her onscreen husband Matt Bennett has happily moved on since their brief relationship on Married at First Sight.

And now Lauren Huntriss has flaunted her own fledgling romance, after she was spotted getting cosy with 36-year-old marketing executive Ria Gan.

The couple were snapped hand-in-hand enjoying a night out in Sydney, with Lauren stealing several kisses from her new female flame.

Despite their relationship being in its early stages, the reality TV star has reportedly told friends she sees Ria in her long-term future.

“There’s absolutely a connection – not just physical, but an emotional one as well. I’ve never seen her so happy,” an insider told New Idea.

“She feels like this might be The One.”

Lauren previously revealed the last time she had been with a woman was in her late teens – following a bad breakup with a boyfriend.

During the series, her decision to tell Matt she ‘used to be a lesbian’ caused tension in their relationship – as Matt was famously a virgin before appearing on the series.

“The fact that I have had relationships with girls definitely shocked Matt and he went silent. He just won’t talk,” Lauren said at the time.

“I’m not impressed to be honest. He should have a thousand things to ask me, I’ve got a thousand things to ask him. So it makes me question like, does he really want to know about me?”

The pair eventually called it quits just two weeks into the series after Matt told the show’s male contestants he wasn’t attracted to his onscreen wife.
