The ‘texting scandal’ between Davina Rankin and Dean Wells during the last season of Married at First Sight set the tone for a particularly salacious season of reality television.
But according to Tracey Jewel, from the moment the ‘affair’ (who even knows what to call it, really) was exposed, the experiment took a turn.
Once Dean came clean about texting Davina, Tracey decided she and Dean should be separated from the rest of the group – including Davina, who was still in the experiment after her partner Ryan was duped and chose to stay.
“We were separated from the group a lot of the time off camera so we didn’t have much of a chance to socialise with everyone like a lot of the couples did,” Tracey told Mamamia. “That was quite bonding for Dean and I as we only had each other.”
