They pledged to stay friends after they split.
But reality TV soon just became reality for Married at First Sight’s Michelle Worsley and James Webster, with Michelle revealing that the pair haven’t spoken in nine months.
The Sydney-based communications manager said James cut all ties with her after she broke it off with him.
“He won’t, he refuses, to talk to me at all,” the 34-year-old told The Daily Mail.
“We’re not friends, and it would be desperately unfair on [Michelle’s new husband] Rob.”
Michelle, who “married” James in a beach commitment ceremony on screen, called off the relationship about a week after filming finished.
She then married ex Bulldogs NRL player Rob – her former flame of two years – just a few months later.
“It was wonderful, like we had never been apart,” she told The Daily Mail of her and Rob’s renewed romance.
“I wasted seven months of my life not being with Rob… He’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”
But while the pair are celebrating their six-month wedding anniversary, Michelle also said her new husband found it difficult to watch her on-screen romance with someone else.
“He [Rob] saw the first few episodes of the show but then walked out and said he couldn’t stomach watching anymore,” Michelle said.
“The hardest thing about the show for me has not been the backlash I got after James and I broke up but seeing Rob have to watch his wife on television kiss another man.”
