It seems two reality TV worlds have collided, with Married At First Sight’s Connie Craydon reportedly hitting it off with former Bachelor Matt Agnew. 

After shocking fans last night when she wrote stay on her card at the MAFS commitment ceremony, it seems Connie has her sights set on another reality hunk. 

According to a source, aspiring marine biologist Connie and astrophysicist Matt Agnew met at an event in Melbourne a few weeks ago and they “really hit it off”.

"Connie was chatting with Matt for ages,'' the source told OK!

"They seemed to really hit it off. There was definitely some serious chemistry between them."

Matt Agnew appeared on the last season of Channel 10’s Bachelor Australia, picking Chelsea McLeod in the final, before the pair called it quits just a few weeks later. 

And it seems things also go south for 27-year-old Connie and her on-screen ‘husband’ Jonathan, with the Melbourne woman admitting that she was “forced” to write stay at the commitment ceremony last night. 

"I was forced to write 'stay' when clearly Jonnie and I were nothing more than friends," Connie told NW.

"They tried to convince me for 12 hours to write 'stay' again. Finally they convinced me to write 'stay' as I felt awful holding him against his will."

She also took to her Instagram account to address her decision to stay in the experiment.

“As I was sitting on that couch, I wanted it to swallow me whole. I couldn't breathe or talk. I was so terrified to open that card to reveal my answer. All I could think is "What will people think of me?" But it's not about hope anymore, and it's not about him either,” she started. 

“ I'm not chasing after something that isn't there. It's much deeper than that now. This wasn't a decision that was made lightly. Thank you to the experts and the group for accepting and supporting my decision but most importantly to Jonethen for standing by me.”
