Despite committing to each other at the final vows ceremony, electrician Mike Gunner and radio personality Heidi Latcham saddened fans when they arrived solo at the show’s dinner party reunion.

And while Mike’s emotional final chat with Heidi the night after had viewers pondering whether they’d rekindle their love, it appears the controversial groom was only playing up for the cameras – as Woman’s Day can reveal he’s long since moved on!

Mike was previously linked to Casey Stewart, 26, who’s the daughter of Gina Stewart – aka “The World’s Hottest Grandma.”

“She’s a great-looking girl and I’m sure she’s a lovely person, but I’ve got nothing to do with her.”

News of Mike’s new relationship is said to have come as a shock to his former bride, with a source close to Heidi Latcham, 38, telling Woman’s Day she had much bigger hopes for their relationship.

“She’s been left heartbroken by the entire process,” the friend reveals.

“She really put herself out there for him, but just when it seemed the right time to give things another shot, he’s involved with someone else.”

Last week, once-smitten Mike and Heidi unfollowed each other on Instagram, while Heidi has taken time out from posting anything on social media.

The friend goes on to explain that Heidi has vowed to wipe Mike from her life entirely and has avoided all forms of contact with him.

And while Heidi tried her best to put on a brave face at her close friends Jules Robinson and Cam Merchant’s engagement do, the insider says her messy split from Mike has made things a bit awkward for Cam, who was good friends with the Gold Coast surfer.

Meanwhile, since the show wrapped Mike has been busy trying to launch his podcast career.

Last week the electrician went live with the Mike Gunner Podcast but the response has been lukewarm.

Mike asked his followers to send in questions, some of which he answered during a casual sit-down chat in front of a brick wall, covered in graffiti.

But don’t expect him to be dishing the dirt on what really happened behind the scenes on MAFS.

“Oh by the way, in case you were wondering, I can’t really talk about you-know-what, the thing that rhymes with GAFS, because I’m just not allowed to,” Mike said.

As for Heidi, she’s returned to her successful career in radio and has been posing up a storm and showing off her killer body.
