The Spill: Monday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. “They’re going to bring it up.” How MAFS’ Michael knew Stacey was lying about Mikey.

Mikey and Stacey’s alleged affair was certainly the talk of last night’s Married At First Sight grand finale, with Stacey continuing to deny the cheating allegations.

And now it turns out Michael actually noticed that Stacey was acting bizarrely before the final dinner party when the news of the cheating scandal first came out.

“Before we got to the dinner party, she goes, ‘I think there’s going to be a rumour coming out that I hooked up with Mikey – but we only went out for coffee.’ I was wondering why she told me like that?” Michael said on Married At First Sight’s YouTube channel.

“It didn’t add up. And I was like, well, if it didn’t happen, it didn’t happen. Then it came out that she slept with Mikey and I thought I’d give her the benefit of the doubt.”

THE END, appreciate your BAD days without them there is no measure of the GOOD days. Onwards and upwards. #MAFS

Michael said that the text message evidence from Mikey’s phone was the final straw.

“Then she says there’s no messages, and out comes the phone,” he said. “I still wanted to defend her and I think the world of her. She’s a great mum, lovely person and sat on a big secret, which would have been really hard to handle.”

The 28-year-old said he was most upset by the fact that Stacey made him feel guilty for hooking up fellow bride Hayley when she was also wrapped up in her own cheating scandal.


“She made me grovel and jump through hoops and feel so guilty, she really crippled me. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to face,” he said. “Especially in front of everybody. It was gut-wrenching.”

So there we have it, Michael had a suspicion about Stacey all along. Yet, something tells us this won’t be the end of this season’s cheating scandals.

Listen to The Spill, Mamamia’s daily entertainment podcast. In today’s episode, co-hosts Kee Reece and Laura Brodnik discuss what a post-MAFS influencer career looks like during the COVID-19 pandemic. Post continues below. 

2. According to Jeff Lowe, Netflix is releasing a new Tiger King episode soon.

In the past month, there have been just two subjects on the minds of everyone around the world – a) the global COVID-19 situation and b) a self-described “gay, gun-toting cowboy with a mullet” called Joe Exotic.

Yep, it seems like just about everyone is obsessed with Netflix’s latest docuseriesTiger King.

Since the show exploded onto our screens, there have been constant rumours about a second season of the show coming to the streaming service.

And now, in another exciting rumour, Jeff Lowe himself has claimed that another episode of Tiger King is coming to our screens very, very soon.


In a Cameo video shared by LA Dodgers player Justin Turner, Jeff Lowe said: "Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. They are filming [at the zoo] tomorrow."

Excuse me, what?

It's unclear whether the episode could be a reunion, or whether it could simply pick up where the last episode left off. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Netflix are also yet to respond to Lowe's claims about the rumoured new episode.

Either way, we're crossing all our fingers and toes.

3. Oh. There's a wild rumour that Married At First Sight: All Stars is happening.

In a twist precisely no one saw coming... John Aiken is allegedly direct messaging celebrities on Instagram to ask them to participate in Married at First Sight: All Stars, and really, this all just seems too good to be true.

Going against rumours that Married at First Sight will not be renewed for a new season in 2021, a source has reportedly told NW that past contestants will be returning to the show alongside celebrities in a bizarre Survivor: All Stars-esque turn of events.

"Producers are changing up the format. They're going to bring back past participants and match them with celebrities," the source claimed.

"They want to provide fans with more twists and surprises."

NW shared a screenshot of an alleged message sent from Aiken to a mystery celeb named Reece and it read:

"Hello Reece... As you know by now from our email conversation you will not be the only celebrity on MAFS 2021. We are currently trying to figure out if we want celebrity marrying a celebrity for the season or celebrities paired up with strangers on the outside..."

Now, as much as we would LOVE for this to be true, there's just something about John Aiken informally DMing an anonymous star such specific information that seems... unlikely.

Either way, we'll be crossing our fingers that this is true because could. you. IMAGINE.

4. Channing Tatum and Jessie J have reportedly split up... again.

In upsetting news, it looks like Channing Tatum and Jessie J have split up for good, following their reunion back in January.

The 32-year-old singer and 39-year-old actor separated for a month back in December after a year of dating.

And now, after a short reunion, the couple have split... again.

"Jessie and Channing really care for each other. You only need to look at the gushing posts they made about each other during their relationship to see that," a source told The Sun.

"That's why they wanted to give their romance another shot, but sadly it hasn't worked out."

"The split was amicable and they're still in contact. They're spending time apart and are open to meeting new people."

5. "He's my naughty boy now." MAFS Michael and KC confirm they're dating and self-isolating together.

After 7547 episodes, this year’s Married At First Sight season is finally over, but that doesn’t mean the gossip is.

The reunion special aired on Sunday night and just hours later, Michael Goonan and KC Osbourne confirmed one of the show’s many badly kept secrets (no seriously, we knew absolutely every spoiler before it happened and we blame the entire cast).

It didn’t work out with their (fake) spouses, but that’s okay because the drama and ratings brought them together and now they’re in love after five weeks of dating and self-isolating together. Because that is the world we now live in.

Although Michael’s reputation post-show was not the best, KC told New Idea she was not concerned about his past partying.

“Before I said yes to being his girlfriend, I asked him to come clean about everything so that no future allegations could rock us and he went into detail about everything. Yes, he was a naughty boy, but he is my naughty boy now.”

It then got serious… very quickly.

“It’s love. We have one hell of a journey ahead of us,” Michael explained. “Everything is on the table. We moved in together last week.”
