The award for the most up and down relationship on the most recent season of Married At First Sight definitely goes to Aleks and Ivan.

After leaving the show early this year rather abruptly, the pair returned for the reunion episodes hand-in-hand, declaring their love for each other.

But it seems that this love was short lived, as Aleks has since taken to Instagram to announce her split from Ivan.

Sharing an image from last night’s reunion episode, Aleks told her followers that her and Ivan dated until February this year, but have since called time on their relationship.

“Ivan and I dated until February when the relationship ended,” she wrote. “Our values, wants, needs and lifestyles din’t align, and that’s ok. I wish him nothing but the best.

“Please respect my privacy on the matter as just like anyone out in the ‘real’ world, some relationships just don’t work out.”


Aleks added that she doesn’t regret her time on the reality TV show and says that she was lucky to learn so much about herself and what she’s looking for in a partner.

“I do not doubt that my soulmate is out there somewhere,” she concluded.

Ivan also posted to his Instagram account following the MAFS reunion last night, alluding to their break up and saying that he will be “filling in the gaps” for those confused soon.

“Mine and Aleks’ relationship is a magical one that I’m sure everybody wants answers on and one I can only speak about in the highest light,” he wrote.

“Stay tuned as I will be sharing my true experience in time… Our relationship is one that I pay a high level of respect and gratefulness towards. I plan on filling in the gaps in due course of the most humble and pleasant nature.”


This comes after Aleks told the experts during the reunion last night that she realised she loved Ivan after the pair left the experiment.

“What we found when we got home was, I had this light bulb moment, crap I miss him,” Aleks explained. “And that’s when I realised I fell in love with this man so much.”

“So you’re in love with him?” Dr Trisha asked Aleks.

“I’m 100 per cent in love with him,” she replied. “And it took me exiting the experiment in the real world to realise that.”


But now the pair have gone their separate ways, meaning that the only couple still together from this season is Liz and Seb.

There are also rumours that Michael and intruder bride KC have started dating after splitting with their original partners from the show.
