Former Married At First Sight star Dean Wells sent fans into meltdown yesterday when he shared a photo of himself cuddling up to The Bachelor's Emma Roche.
Although the captioned implied the pair were an item, the controversial reality star has since set the record straight, revealing they're actually just friends.
Talk about being misled!
After his former MAFS co-star Melissa Walsh congratulated Dean on his "new romance", he later replied: "ha thanks Mel.
"Emma and I are just good friends btw! Not sure why everyone thinks were dating or whatever. All I said was that its great that I know her. Shes an awesome human!"

The delightful Melissa went on to apologise for assuming they were an item, writing: "Sorry I was also one to jump on the 'love' bandwagon!! I had a feeling it might have been a bit hasty lol. Anyhow that's reality TV for you haha. Hope you're well and happy regardless of your relationship status. Be great to catch up soon."
"ha, that's ok. You know me Mel. Never rush into anything," he responded, adding a winky face.
Although Dean acted like he was surprised to hear people thought he was dating Emma, one fan called his bluff, writing: "I'd guess it's probably the extremely intimate pose."
"She had something caught in her throat. I was giving her the Heimlich maneuver," Dean weirdly responded.
After Dean shocked fans with the cheeky snap, many of his other former MAFS co-stars added more fuel to the dating fire when they left congratulatory comments on the posted.
"Ohhhh yay!!! Congrats lovebirds," Sarah Roza wrote alongside two love heart emojis.
"Congratulations champ," his close friend Jesse Konstantinoff added.
Then John Robertson weighed in on the snap, writing: "Great to see big Dean."
