MAFS Australia 2024 is back on our TV screens in the UK so what better time to reflect on the 2023 cast and who is still together?

From Tahnee and Ollie to Melinda and Layton, Married At First Sight Australia managed to create some seriously strong couples with viewers hoping they would last a life time.

But now, almost a year on, has anyone from the Aussie experiment managed to stay together and strong? Or did they all end up just like Caitlin and Shannon and Bronte and Harrison who dramatically split on the show?

Here's all the MAFs Australia 2023 couples who are still together and who split.

Tahnee and Ollie - split

The youngest couple of the experiment and Tahnee and Ollie showed promise from the very beginning.

Shining throughout all the challenges, these two confessed their love and future plans before the MAFS experiment was even over meaning they left fully committed to one another.

And while things did go really well for Tahnee and Ollie, they very sadly confirmed in December 2023 they had split.

So why did they break up? Ollie explained on a podcast: "I think Tahnee has some great qualities and I have so much respect for her and I still have love for Tahnee but at our core we are just really, really different."

It was a relationship doomed from the starting line as Taylor made her struggles very clear to her husband.

With no intentions of trying to make things work, this halfway couple only lasted a couple of weeks in the experiment with rumours even circulating that she was sexting co-star Cameron.

Melinda and Layton - split

A couple with their ups and downs throughout the whole experiment, proved everyone wrong when they emerged from the final vows together and determined.

Fast forward almost a year after the experiment was filmed and the couple confirmed in a joint statement they had parted ways.

It read: "Hi all – we wanted to keep this private for the time being, but we have a lot of supporters that are invested in the relationship and owe it to you to be transparent.

"After a lot of thought and consideration, we have sadly decided to both take time apart.

"We still care very deeply for each other and this doesn't mean our lives can't come back together, but as of now, we think this decision is for the best."

Everyone was cheering on this fairytale couple who seemed to be perfect for one another but it became clear there might not be a happy ending as cracks began to show halfway through.

In one of the most brutal commitment ceremonies, Duncan decided to step away from Alyssa who was willing to keep working on their relationship.

Duncan is now with MAFS co-star Evelyn.

Fiery and turbulent, they eventually stormed away from one another a few weeks before the end of the experiment.
