Having failed to find love on the last season of Married At First Sight it seems that one of our favourite contestants is heading for another attempt down the aisle.

Melissa Walsh, who was “married” to fan favourite John Robertson on the reality TV show that aired earlier this year, has revealed that she’s engaged following her split from John a few months ago.

Mel and John were one of the favourite couples from the last season of the show that sees complete strangers meet for the first time on their wedding day but just a few months after the show aired the pair announced that they had split.

“It has been a very difficult decision and it make us both very sad to say we have decided to no longer continue as a couple,” the pair said in a statement at the time.

Two months after this breakup, 53-year-old Melissa announced that she was dating a man named Fred Whiston and now just a short time later it looks like they’re taking the next step in their relationship.


Posting a photo of an engagement ring on Instagram, Melissa wrote, “When the man you are in love with proposes, you say ‘yes’.”

Earlier this year in June, Melissa opened up about her whirlwind romance with Whiston, telling Woman’s Day that he might just be the one.


“It’s been a very quick connection that’s happened so intensely, and I can’t wait to share my life with him,” she said.


We guess when you know, you know! Congratulations to the happy couple and we hope second time’s the charm for this MAFS star!
