Shona Manderson recently told fans she was dating ‘someone new’ after leaving Married at First Sight UK, and she's now confirmed she's in a new relationship with co-star Matt Pilmoor after they were pictured together.

Matt was paired with bride Adrienne Naylor on the show, and while their first few episodes showed them getting on well, their relationship wasn’t meant to be and he's found love with Shona instead.

Shona’s Married at First Sight UK experience was cut short when she and now-ex husband Brad Skelly were advised to leave the experiment when concerns were raised over his behaviour towards her.

Are Shona and Matt from MAFS UK dating? Here's what we know.

Are Shona and Matt from MAFS UK together?

Shona and co-star Matt are dating after all, after they were spotted together in Starbucks ‘looking very relaxed in each other’s company’, weeks after Shona said she’d found love again. They confirmed they were officially together in a joint interview with OK! magazine, sweetly declaring on Instagram they can finally be 'free'.

After leaving MAFS UK and splitting from Brad, the performing arts teacher confirmed she was seeing someone new.

She wrote in an upload reflecting on her MAFS UK journey: “I realised deep down I needed to love myself more. I did just that, I filled myself up with self love and when I was ready fate kicked in and I met the kindest soul who loves me just the way I am and it’s what I deserve.”

Shona and Brad were together for around a month and a half after leaving the show, but called time on their relationship after a tumultuous time together.

Meanwhile, body builder Matt and project support officer Adrienne seemed to hit it off straight away, with fans hoping they’d gone the distance. However, the new pictures of Matt with Shona seem to clarify they didn’t last after all.

Typically, the newlyweds must wait until after the show has finished and viewers have seen the final commitment ceremonies to reveal whether they’re still together.

Over on Instagram, they’d given fans hope their relationship was still going strong after they both shared some cute photos from their honeymoon to Tenerife.
