They were the indignant victims when the MAFS’ cheating scandal exploded last night.
Tamara Joy and Mick Gould could barely contain themselves as their partners Dan Webb and Jessika Power declared their infatuation for each other, and – to add insult to injury – were allowed to re-enter the experiment as a legitimate couple.
Off-screen, it had been believed that Tam and Mick had found comfort in each other’s arms after they were seen getting touchy-feely at Tam’s 30th birthday party earlier this month.
However, last night Tam set the record straight.
Posting an image of herself and Mick from that same party to Instagram, she clarified that they are, “JUST FRIENDS”.
In the photo, Mick is pulling the brunette close and they’re both smiling. He’s previously said, “I wish I was paired with Tamara. Great chick – and real!”
Is there more to the affair than we saw?
Both Mick and Tam needed to leave the room at different times during last night’s dramatic commitment ceremony and they seemed completely shocked by Jess and Dan’s betrayal.
However, in explosive comments made last week, Jess claimed that she had both Tam and Mick’s blessing to pursue her affair.
Speaking on Talking Married, Jess claimed, “At the girls’ night, Tamara said, ‘You like my husband? If you like Dan, go for Dan’.”
“And Mick sat at the dinner table and said to Dan, ‘If you like Jess, have her’.”
Jess added that despite that, “I feel horrible about Tamara, I trashed girl code and I was disgusting.”
