Heidi Latcham went into Married At First Sight hoping to find her happily ever after with the man of her dreams.

Instead, the bubbly radio host left the experiment heartbroken and humiliated after her marriage to gas-lighting husband Mike Gunner imploded just two days after she relocated to the Gold Coast to begin their lives together.

Since their split was revealed, Mike has enjoyed romances with a bevy of beauties.

However, it’s Heidi who’s ultimately getting the last laugh, as NW can exclusively reveal that she’s moved on too… with Australia’s very own Prince Charming, Dr Chris Brown.

Talk about trading up!

“It’s still early days, but word is they’ve been on a few sneaky dates while she’s been down in Sydney visiting Cam and Jules,” an insider divulges.

As NW understands it, Heidi and Chris were introduced by a mutual friend after they realised the blonde bombshell is very much Chris’s type.

The former Bondi Vet star definitely appears to have a thing for bubbly, outgoing blondes.

He dated Unreal star Kassandra Clementi from 2014 to 2015 and more recently was linked to The Loop host Liv Phyland.

Their romance was revealed last November, but by late January it was being reported that the pair were already on the rocks – reportedly due to Chris taking off to South Africa to film I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

“Heidi is so done with all the Mike drama. She’s ready to put that chapter of her life behind her and move on,” the insider admits.

“Despite everything that happened on MAFS, she hasn’t been put off marriage. She’d still love to meet someone and she’s hopeful that the right man is still out there for her.”

Perfect match?

Heidi and Dr Chris certainly seem to be perfect for each other, at least on paper.

The celeb vet, 40, has previously shared that he “absolutely” wants children – and Heidi, 38, has also expressed a desire to have a brood of her own.

“I wanted to start a family definitely,” she shared with NW after being left heartbroken by Mike.

“I also talked about having kids with a few of my ex-boyfriends. We would say, ‘Oh, you know I want this many kids’ – but it never happened.”

After leaving home at 16, Heidi had a difficult time getting into foster care and was eventually forced to live in government housing on her own – so the thought of a relationship with such a dependable guy like Chris would have Heidi hooked.

“Chris comes from a stable family, something that Heidi craves. It was one of the major things she found so attractive about Mike,” tells a source of the reality star.

The truth at last

But while the pair are believed to be keeping their budding romance on the down-low for now, Heidi is said to be excited to finally move on from her on-screen hubby Mike – especially after new details about their split recently came to light.

“She and Mike basically imploded,” an insider reveals to NW of the former couple, whose break-up left many MAFS fans scratching their heads.

“He had no interest in her after the show. He ghosted her as soon as she moved in to his home, ignoring her until she moved out two days later.”

But now that Heidi’s washed him right out of her fabulous head of hair, Mike’s certainly been left feeling like the fool!

“Producers said he had to say ‘I love you’ in the finale or leave – and he agreed as he wants a TV presenting career,” adds the source.

“So hearing Heidi’s possibly moved on with Dr Chris – who has one – would no doubt make his blood boil!”

Aww, too bad, so sad, Mike!
