scandal 13/12/2018

Her attempt at finding love on reality TV didn't work out but now Married At First Sight Australia's Melissa is going to walk down the aisle in a more personal and private setting.

Melissa Walsh was paired up with fan favourite John Robertson on the latest season of the show, but the couple split just a couple of months after the finale.

Less than two months later, the journalist, 53, revealed she was dating Fred Whiston.

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday night, Walsh shared a photo of a diamond and gold engagement ring alongside the caption: “When the man you are in love with proposes, you say ‘yes’.”

Many expected the couple to go the distance but their split shocked fans.

“It has been a very difficult decision and it makes us both very sad to say we have decided to no longer continue as a couple,” they said in a statement at the time.

About her new love, Melissa said to Woman's Day: “It’s been a very quick connection that’s happened so intensely, and I can’t wait to share my life with him.”
