scandal 21/05/2018

Married at First Sight's Tracey Jewel has revealed the reason behind her shock split from castmate Sean Thomsen.

In an interview with Hit Far North Queensland’s Shad and Carly show, Tracey explained: “Sean’s on a different page and that’s never going to change ... You can’t change a man, so I thought it’s better to call it now.”

Tracey added that she had given the relationship her “best shot” and that it was “better to call it early than drag it on for another six months”.

Late last week, Sean responded to the breakup by sharing a video on Instagram, thanking fans for their support.

“I just want to say thanks to everyone, anyone, who sent a message or, y’know, is just asking how I am ... That’s really nice, so thank you,” he said.

“Second of all, I just want to say that I’m kind of laying low for now, just reassessing future goals and moving forward. Just keeping it on the down-low.”

Tracey and Sean went public with their relationship during the reunion episode.

But last week, Tracey revealed to New Idea that she’d “dumped” Sean after just six months of dating, complaining that she’d had “no stability” in her life due to his being a “fly-in, fly-out” worker.

“There’s a multitude of reasons and we both could see the writing on the wall for the last couple of weeks,” she said.

“I think we’ve both been in denial, wanting it to work so badly, but it’s just not ... I just had to call it because I’d rather leave on good terms and still be amicable rather than it turn nasty and bitter.”

And in a MASSIVE TWIST Tracey also revealed that she couldn't stop thinking about her ex, Dean. 

“I hear what he’s up to — it’s hard not to [think about him],” Tracey said. “I’m sure he’ll be happy to hear about this breakup. I reckon he will call me ... Dean will always have a soft spot in my heart and who knows? The way me and Dean ended things, you never say never. Some couples can take a break and have some space and come back.

“I’m ready and I know what I want.”
