Are Jay and Luke from MAFS UK 2023 still together?

Jay and Luke are no longer together after meeting on Married at First Sight, despite becoming one of the strongest couples early on in their journey. And recently Luke has gone public with a new girlfriend.

The pair confirmed their split at the final dinner party when Jay told her co-stars after arriving solo: "He literally, basically just said, like, we are better off just being friends. I asked him what he wanted, but he couldn't answer the question."

After the reunion aired, they each took to Instagram to address their split, with Jay switching her profile to private in the process. She wrote on Stories: "Thank you for the journey we’ve been on together, for the many ups and downs we’ve had along the way but most of all, thank you for the memories. @lukeworley1 You have been my rock throughout this whole experiment!"

Meanwhile, Luke said in a post: "I’m sorry that our journey in the experiment was cut short and I will always feel guilty for that. I’m so happy I met you and I believe fate brought us together to teach us some life lessons. Thank you for everything Jay, you will always be special to me and I will always be there for you whenever you need me. I’m glad we can be friends because I couldn’t imagine you not being in my life."
