MAFS' Tayla caught on intimate 'date' with Jackson Lonie: 'Didn't take long'

This year's Married At First Sight's 'villain' was all smiles during a night out.

MAFS fans were relieved when Tayla Winter and Hugo Armstrong decided to call it quits during Wednesday night’s dinner party. The outspoken bride has been slammed online for her treatment of Hugo, with viewers labelling her as a “brat” and “rude”.

While cheating rumours have been swirling around Tayla and Lyndall Grace’s ‘husband’ Cam Woods, she was recently spotted with Olivia Frazer’s ex Jackson Lonie from MAFS season nine. Daily Mail reports that the pair got ‘cosy’ as they got to know each other in a Gold Coast bar in late January.

Photos of their night out here reveal how close the MAFS contestants have become, with Tayla smiling as Jackson entertained her inside the bar.

The Tasmanian nurse showed off her figure in a plunging black dress, with a triangle cut-out sitting just under her bust. The satin dress also boasted a see-through lace detail, and she held a small black clutch in one hand.


The contestant, 29, left her long hair loose and accessorised with a dazzling set of earrings and delicate jewelled bracelets.

Jackson, 31, stepped out in a more low-key look, wearing beige shorts, a black Stüssy hat and a loose black short-sleeved shirt. He finished his look off with a pair of casual black converse shoes.

The potential new couple then linked up with controversial groom Dan Hunjas as they headed outside. Dan and Jackson supported Tayla by linking arms and keeping her upright, as she tottered forward in a pair of sky-high nude heels.

MAFS fans were surprised by this new development, however many agreed that Tayla was definitely Jackson’s “type”.


“Oh god. He is a magnet for psychotic self-absorbed drama queens,” one person wrote.

“He always did have bad judgement concerning women,” another added.

“They suit each other!” a third remarked.

“That would be right! Didn’t take her long,” another pointed out.
