MAFS Australia has certainly delivered when it comes to the 2024 cast, the expert's chosen couples and of course, the drama.

Alessandra Rampolla, Mel Schilling and John Aiken paired up Andrea, 51, and Richard, 62, this season's oldest couple.

After some shocking TV moments during the early Married At First Sight scenes, including a terrible best man speech at Sara and Tim's wedding, it was nice to see Andrea and Richard have such a beautiful meet.

However, things began to crash and burn after Richard's crude personality gave Andrea the 'ick' and their initial spark was found difficult to recover.

So did Andrea and Richard managed to survive the MAFS experiment and stay together? Or have they split? Here's what we know and prepare yourselves, there are spoilers ahead.

Are MAFS Australia 2024 couple Andrea and Richard still together?

Andrea and Richard are not together, the pair didn't make it to the end of the social experiment.

Andrea had been reportedly dating fellow co-star Timothy who was originally paired with fan favourite contestant Lucinda Light during the experiment.

A video has circulated, that was taken by Andrea and then posted on a Married At First Sight gossip Instagram page.

In the video, Andrea was on the couch with her daughter watching the Final Vows episodes that had just aired in Australia.

“We’re watching Jack and Tori’s final vows, Indi and I,” Andrea said before she panned the camera to reveal Timothy asleep on her couch.

“With Timmy,” she said, “And, he’s so into it he’s fallen asleep. He’s that bored.”

Andrea has now spoken out to put any rumours to rest, she clarified to New Idea, that she and Timothy are just “beautiful friends.”

“There's nothing romantic there,” she said. “I adore him, and he adores me." According to Andrea, Timothy had been “a rock” and making friends had been “the best part of the experiment.”

“The people with kind hearts found each other in the experiment which has been really special,” she finalised.

Chattr spoke to a supposed ‘close friend of Andrea’s’ who revealed that she was dating someone new after she and Richard called it quits.

Not only that, but the source revealed that fans “would be familiar with this person.”

“This man calls and texts her almost every day, he’s coming to see her this weekend they’re having a secret little catch-up and have planned to stay together for a few days and then in a week or two she’s going to go and see him again!!!”

According to reports since the show finished filming, Richard has been spotted with numerous brides from the show leaving Andrea feeling "humiliated".

A source said: "You really have to feel for Andrea. It can’t have felt good watching her groom drape himself all over these younger women."

However, those rumours remain, simply rumours as in early March, the pair were photographed walking hand in hand together, and kissing each other in the sunshine.

So thankfully, everyone's favourite couple seems to have made it through the worst of it.

Here's hoping this series has a better success rate than MAFS Australia 2023.
