This is too much. But we love it.

We thought that Married At First Sight couple Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli were one that actually liked each other.

That the show actually worked for them…

But it seems they have split up since the show stopped filming, and Martha’s rebound hottie is Sam Ball.

We have seen exclusive reports from NW that reveal the couple have been seeing each other for the last four months, with talk of a super romantic date in Byron Bay, where Sam was living.

A source spoke with NW saying they pair “only had eyes for each other”.

Another witness spotted them in Sydney in February.


“Even though they were doing their best to fly under the radar, at one point Martha got up and sat on Sam’s lap. They were being really affectionate with one another.”

“Martha and Michael’s lives were just too different… I hate to say it, but their marriage was never going to work.”

On top of these anonymous reports, it seems that Sam has opened up about how he feels about Martha too!

Sam has told NW, “Martha is attractive and she knows what she wants.”

“I love how confident she is in her own skin… Not to the point where Elizabeth was [which was] an arrogant way… but in a beautiful way, where she can just be someone who can stand by my side and we conquer the world together.”

Apparently we’ll see a little preview of their romance in the two-part MAFS reunion which was filmed just a few weeks after Martha and Sam caught up in Byron.
