Married At First Sight's Telv (real name Telverne Williams) and Sarah Roza have ended their relationship following the end of filming on the popular dating show.
Sarah confirmed the sad news in an emotional Instagram post. "On the back of what has been such an extraordinary experience it is with great heartache, regret & sadness that Telv & I are no longer together. As you undoubtedly saw, my heart was completely committed to this before I even met my husband & it was absolutely set on fire once I did meet him," she regretfully announced.
Roza continued: "Like all relationships, no one but the couple involved know exactly what goes on behind the smiles & the tears, so respecting the dignity of both Telv & myself I am wanting to be completely transparent with you; the dedicated, much loved & appreciated viewer. Being surrounded by friends & family is providing a safe haven for me now. This is so I can heal & continue to carry on living a upstanding & happy life.
"An experiment like this forces you to reveal exactly who you are. For me; I’m so proud of my resilience, decency, compassion & my loyalty. I know that nobody is perfect yet I am at that stage in my life where the foundation of basic respect & support from my partner is crucial. As a woman I know what I truly deserve & I just can’t allow my innate standards to be compromised," the vivacious red head wrote.
"There were so many heartfelt moments that we shared together which I honestly will treasure forever. I truly wish only the absolute best for Telv because I undoubtedly will always love & care very deeply for him, but ultimately I deserve someone who shares the same life goals & aspirations as I do.
Whilst I didn’t find lasting love it has surprised me that I did in fact find something much more important; my inner strength. This honestly was the most challenging & intensely emotional undertaking that I’ve ever committed to. I’ve ‘walked through fire’ more times than I ever imagined I would. While it saddens me that it didn’t work out, I do know the right man for me is out there somewhere looking for me too. I still believe in my happily ever after & that I’m deserving of a pure & committed love.
I will always be eternally grateful that our paths crossed in this way as I feel that I have learnt so much about myself & grown exponentially as a person. I’m honoured to have been a part of this incredible life changing journey & I’m thrilled to embrace the next exciting chapter in my life... @telv1"
The couple's relationship has been under close public scrutiny over recent weeks, with reports first emerging that they had split after Telv's emails were allegedly leaked. According to an email from Telv, 33, to one of the show's producers, the machinery technician calls his wife "crazy" and confesses to blocking her phone number.
However, in a story posted to his Instagram, Telv spoke to the camera and confirmed that the couple is still very much together. "Hey guys, please don’t believe everything that you read – this woman is not crazy she’s just crazy about me!" he quipped.
A sad Sarah appeared in the footage, adding: “It hurt my feelings.”
"Had a chat to Sarah... I have blocked her number and refuse to have anymore talks," writes Telv in the email dated February 17 and published via Daily Mail.
Telv continues: "I wanted to try and get along strictly for publicity... I no longer want anything to do with this crazy woman."
The couple then continued to keep up appearances on social media, appearing to be more loved-up than ever. Only two couples in MAFS history have found lasting love, therefore Telv and Sarah would have defied the odds if they made their relationship work beyond the show.
