After months spent navigating one of the most tumultuous breakups ever to appear on reality TV, former Married At First Sight stars Stacey Hampton and Michael Goonan are finally putting the past behind them.

In photographs shared by the Daily Mail, the pair were spotted enjoying a round of drinks at Gold Coast’s Burleigh Pavilion over the weekend. They both looked relaxed and elated to be in each other’s company, sharing multiple jokes as they sat side-by-side at the bar.

The businessman wore a black dress shirt, white jeans and a gold wristwatch for the occasion, while the single mum-of-two opted for a casual pink mini skirt and white tank. She completed the laid-back look with a Louis Vuitton handbag, designer sunglasses and strappy black sandals, her hair styled in loose waves.

Given their troubled relationship – which began when Michael cheated on his bride with co-star Hayley Vernon during filming – the happy reunion has come as a huge surprise to fans. Still, both parties are adamant there’s no unfinished business between them.

“He had a fun time. He was hooking up with multiple girls,” Stacey told The Kyle And Jackie O show on Monday, adding that she acted as Michael’s “wing-woman” during the outing.

“We’re just good friends,” Michael reiterated. “She’s not that stupid [to get back with me.]”

The couple officially ended their “marriage” at the cast reunion in January, when Michael accused Stacey of sleeping with a fellow groom – something she vehemently denied.

While the 26-year-old hasn’t been romantically linked to anyone since, Michael has dated a string of women, including *MAFS* star KC Osborne and bikini brand founder Mahala Lincoln.
