One of the most successful Married At First Sight couples from this year’s season have confirmed that they have split up.

Belinda Vickers, 29, has officially addressed the rumours she and Patrick Dwyer, 27, called it quits after eagle-eyed fans spotted on Sunday that he'd unfollowed his girlfriend on Instagram.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, Belinda shared a statement that read: "We would like to address the current rumours of our split and can confirm we have gone our separate ways. 

"We have enjoyed a relationship together for over nine months however we do not want the same things in love and life. We appreciate all the love and support we received through our journey."

Followers of Patrick first noticed he'd unfollowed Belinda when he reduced his ‘following’ count to zero.

Meanwhile, Belinda is still following Patrick on the social media platform.

Fans of the quirky couple noticed they are appearing less and less on each other’s profiles with Belinda’s last post with Patrick on her page, a fun outfit reveal video, was shared over a month ago.


Meanwhile, Patrick’s most recent post with his girlfriend is an edited montage of their MAFS TV journey from the end of June.

“Bel is currently in quarantine, so I can’t see her for a while,” the personal trainer captioned the clip. “But here’s a short cute video of our time on MAFS.”

It also appears that neither one of them have liked each other’s Instagram posts since June 28.

MAFS stars show off brand new looks

Recently, both Patrick and Belinda have undergone dramatic transformations that they’ve documented on social media.

Patrick had a total teeth overhaul in May by celebrity dentist Dr Deepan 'Dr Dee' Duraisamy.

The former TV groom had 12 porcelain veneers installed, which are thought to have cost a minimum of $24,000.

“Not going to lie, after seeing my teeth on MAFS I realised how bad they were and started to get self-conscious about my smile,” he wrote online after revealing his new look.

“I did get a lot of negative comments about my teeth but it was when I personally started to dislike them that it started to bother me.”

Meanwhile, Belinda unveiled her hair transformation last month after dying her signature curly brown locks a fiery orange colour.

“When you thought my hair couldn’t get any more extra,” she remarked on Instagram.

MAFS' Melissa and Bryce share big news

Patrick and Belinda’s break-up come just as another couple from this year’s experiment have revealed their own news.

MAFS season 8 stars Melissa Rawson and Bryce Ruthven stunned fans on Monday by announcing that they’re not only engaged, but expecting twins.

The couple's twins will be a world-first for a Married At First Sight couple.

“It's been a whirlwind but we're so incredibly happy,” Melissa told the publication.
