Married At First Sight's Carly Bowyer has lashed out at MAFS groom Nick Furphy after she says he fueled rumours that the two were in a relationship by posting a suggestive photo to Instagram.
Speaking exclusively to NW on Wednesday, Carly was determined to set the record straight.
"I am not and will not ever date Nick Furphy," she stresses.
Carly added: "His Instagram story was a joke and an attempt at stirring the pot, but I do not find it funny whatsoever given it's at mine and Troy's expense."
On Wednesday Nick uploaded a photo of himself and Carly to Instagram stories, sparking further speculation that the pair were dating.
"I'm furious that people think this is a game that they can make gains from," Carly said to NW.
"There are real people and real emotions involved. I'm sorry to Troy who had to see any of this, particularly in already tough circumstances."
Last week Carly announced that she had split from MAFS groom Troy Delmege after nine months together.
Carly, who was originally paired with millionaire Justin Fischer, and Troy, who was matched with flight attendant Ashley Irvine, were the couple we never saw coming. Yet the two have seemingly ended their realrionship on great terms.
"Troy, my darling, you are something special. You're my best friend and I will always be here for you. It's the end of this chapter but it's not goodbye," Carly posted on her Instagram.
