During her season on the ratings juggernaut, Melissa, who was paired with Dino Hira, was infamous for her confession that she hadn’t had sex in a decade.
The publication reports that after meeting Jake at a party in Sydney, Melissa broke her celibacy marathon to indulge in a night of passion with Jake shortly after he had filmed the reunion episode.
Confirming the liaison, Melissa hinted to The Wash that the deed wasn’t all she’d be hoping after 10 years of not sharing the sheets with someone.
Quizzed about whether it was “everything she’d imagined it to be”, Melissa replied: “Ummm no, not really. I guess I thought I would play it cool at least. And I was anything but cool guys, as I’m sure you can all imagine.”

Meanwhile, Jake has since moved on with new lady love Sophie Guidolin and spoke to 9 Entertainment about how they fell in love after meeting online.
"It was amazing. I flew up to where she lives and we spent a week together and haven't been away from each other ever since. This was love at first sight and it's been a great experience," he said.
Things are getting serious between the couple too - Jake has also met Sophie's sons Kai and Ryder and her twin girls Evie and Aria.
"She knows this a little bit but she came into my life at the perfect time. She saved me in a lot of ways. She's a remarkable mum, she's an incredible woman, and she's perfect."
His current romance may be heading in the right direction at the moment, but not everyone Jake has dated has enjoyed a “happy ever after”
In an explosive tell-all published by New Idea on Monday, Jake’s ex-girlfriend Paige McCuskey accused her former fiancé of ruining her life.
