For any Married At First Sight fans who were hoping Matthew and Lauren would work things out, think again.
In a chat with Fitzy and Wippa on their Nova breakfast radio show on Thursday morning, the 29 year-old videographer revealed that not only has his relationship with Lauren well and truly ended, but he also has moved on with a band-new girlfriend.

Matthew, who was more commonly known on the show as The 29 Year-Old Virgin or The Ex Virgin, even invited his new lady, Annabelle on the show with him who he has been dating since December last year.
"We met through wrestling, so we both train at UPW [United Pro Wrestling] on the Sunshine Coast," she said on the air.
Annabelle, who hails from the UK, confesses she hadn't even heard of the show, let alone how popular it is around Australia.
"Yeah it's pretty crazy. We started getting on and he showed me a video of them running through mazes and I was like, 'What is this, a gardening show?'"
The couple made the decision to not watch the show, but Annabelle is well aware of all the drama surrounding his on-screen bride Lauren.

Matthew also dropped the bombshell that Lauren is allegedly sending him texts, and not in a nice way.
"The context of the messages is, well, to put it bluntly, it's abuse. That's all it is," the MAFS groom stated.
However, Matthew's new lady love is taking all the drama with a grain of salt.
"I guess that my spin on it is the fact that sometimes people just aren't buying what you're selling and that doesn't make you a bad person, and for her I just think that it's hard and it's tough and I kind of feel for her a bit to be honest."
"I don't think it says anything about her, the way that your [Matthew's] feelings manifested in the way that they did."

Matthew's not the only one to go on air and spill some juicy MAFS goss.
Lauren also opened up about her Married At First Sight experience to Jackie O and Beau Ryan on their KIIS FM show.
Not only did the make up artist reveal that she was forced to tell Matthew she was a lesbian by producers, but she added that she felt that she was merely the bride married to a 29-year-old virgin and it was all about him.
"We all have a role to play, this whole story with Matthew and I, was about Matthew and his virginity.
"You could see it from day one. It was all about him. His struggles, his issues, his self-development."
