Stop it. There are rumours of another Married at First Sight partner swap.

So it’s seeming more and more like Married At First Sight might as well be Love Island – with a slightly older group and a less tropical location.

There’s speculation that another duo are going to ditch their matched partners on the show and hook up, after Sam Ball and Ines Basic repeated last year’s texting scandal.

Fans have noticed clues on social media that Lauren Huntriss and Mick Gould may have ended up together.

Clues aside, things aren’t looking good for either person and their matched partner.

Lauren and ex-virgin Matt Bennett are going to have a hard time getting over that he isn’t attracted to her. And the makeup artist’s latest Instagram comments give us very little faith it’s going to happen.

Meanwhile, Mick and his “wife” Jessika Power seemed like a bad fit almost immediately, and fought at the dinner party when the farmer refused to defend the 26-year-old.

But what makes viewers think that Lauren and Mick might end up together is their flirty exchanges on Instagram.

Under a photo Mick posted of himself in a suit for the show, Lauren wrote “#stud”.

And on Thursday when the 31-year-old posted a photo of the view from his farm, Lauren commented “Wish I was there”, to which he replied “and how”, with a pizza emoji.

Maybe because they ate pizza at that very spot on a date recently?

It only got more suspicious when Lauren posted a photo of herself also on Valentine’s Day with the caption “Date ready”, before quickly changing it to “Quick selfie before hubby comes back with dinner”.

But – wait for it – there was also a pizza emoji, suggesting there might be some kind of in-joke between the pair.

Mick’s Instagram Story did feature photos with Jessika, but we also know those snaps could have been taken at any time.

Jessika posted a Valentine’s Day photo of her own that also adds fuel to this speculation firestorm.

Despite mentioning her “hubby” in the caption, the photo suspiciously didn’t include Mick.


Jessika has already denied rumours she’s dating former Love Island star Eden Dally after a fellow MAFS alumnus posted a photo of them together.

The model dismissed any suggestion they were a couple as “ridiculous” in a chat with the Daily Mail.

“This is ridiculous! Me and Eden are not together, we are friends,” she said, adding that the reason they were hanging out was because he was friends with her brother Rhyce.

What do you think? Are Lauren and Mick together?
