Speaking to B105 Brisbane’s Stav, Abby and Matt on Tuesday, an anonymous friend of Courtney’s revealed that not only were the pair “full blown dating and loved each other,” but that they were still in regular contact until “the last few weeks” of the show.
The Married At First Sight contestant, who also had a small stint on Home and Away back in the day, allegedly moved to Canberra in May or June and then went to film the show in September. This means that, according to the anonymous friend, “he would have met her just weeks after moving there.”
