What was arguably Married at First Sight’s greatest love story has sadly come to an end, with Troy Delmege and Carly Bowyer deciding to go their separate ways.
The unlikely couple, who got together after their onscreen marriages collapsed, announced the news on Instagram on Wednesday night.
“We’ve had an incredible 9 months together and it hurts to walk away from,” Troy captioned a photo of the pair taken in happier times.
“I knew way back when we met at the first dinner party that Carly was a special girl. She captured my heart in so many ways… She was my rock during the experiment and has been ever since…”
There was just as much love in Carly’s post, in which she called the Sydney-sider “my darling” and described him as her “best friend”.
“We threw ourselves head first into a relationship, that despite all odds, felt like it was destined to be,” she said.
“We fell in love and experienced some of the most real and amazing moments together that I will never forget.”
Carly also hinted as to why things went awry, and explained that despite fighting for their love, “our lives no longer align and we are unable to make this work.”
