‘I dumped him’: Shock MAFS split

MARRIED At First Sight couple Tracey Jewel and Sean Thomsen have called it quits, less than two months after the finale aired.

The couple wasn't originally matched on the controversial dating show, but ended up together after Tracey dumped cheating "husband" Dean Wells over trust issues following his dalliance with Davina Rankin.

Tracey and Sean went public with their relationship during the reunion episode, which was filmed just five months ago and aired in late March. After the season wrapped, the Perth-based pair went on a media blitz to flaunt their new-found love, even discussing plans to move to Melbourne together.

But it's all over now.

In an interview with New Idea this week, mum-of-one Tracey, 35, revealed the "brutal" way she'd dumped "fly-in, fly-out" worker Sean.

"Because he works away and I've been away a lot, I had to wait until when I picked him up from the airport and I just told him straight away," she told the magazine. "I couldn't even wait for him to get into the frigging car."

Tracey also explained that her life had had "no stability" thanks to his FIFO status, and that she was relieved they'd scuppered plans to move to Melbourne together.

"There's a multitude of reasons and we both could see the writing on the wall for the last couple of weeks," she said.

"I think we've both been in denial, wanting it to work so badly, but it's just not ... I just had to call it because I'd rather leave on good terms and still be amicable rather than it turn nasty and bitter."

In a bombshell twist, she also revealed she couldn't stop thinking about her ex, Dean.

"I hear what he's up to - it's hard not to [think about him]," Tracey said. "I'm sure he'll be happy to hear about this breakup. I reckon he will call me ... Dean will always have a soft spot in my heart and who knows? The way me and Dean ended things, you never say never. Some couples can take a break and have some space and come back.

"I'm ready and I know what I want."
