Married At First Sight Australia hotties Evelyn Ellis and Duncan James have finally announced that they are in a very passionate relationship “with a sprinkle of best friend” following a load of dating rumours.
And since the two have confirmed their relationship in what seems like the hardest launch in history, I can’t seem to scroll my timelines without seeing a gushy post about the loved-up couple!
With that being said, let's jump right into the juicy deets of the Duncelyn (yes, I just made that up) relationship launch.

In a TikTok posted by the official @mafs account, the couple finally answered the question on the tip of everyone’s tongue: “Are you in a relationship?”
Without hesitation, Duncan confirmed: “Yes, I am. Well, yes we are.”
“We are in a relationship,” the two repeated with smiles beaming ear to ear.
“It feels good to finally just say it and it feels kind of exhilarating in a weird freeing way,” Evelyn said.
Duncan explained how the relo came to be: “Everyone's sort of friends in the cast, and obviously, me and you live in Sydney we probably hung out a little bit more. All of a sudden we went out on a couple of nights, and some of the warm fuzzy feelings happened in my stomach and I thought, 'What's this? How we going here?'”
“Some of the warm fuzzy feelings happened in my stomach and I thought ‘Ooh what’s this, how are we going here,’ and then yeah, one thing led to another.”
Well, I could almost guarantee some of those “warm fuzzies” were in his tummy after we saw that spicy footage of our two favourite MAFS AU stars dirty dancing in the club a few months back.
In contrast to his turbulent relationship with MAFS bride Alyssa, Duncan describes his chemistry with Evelyn as “passion, just straight up passion with a sprinkling of best friend.”
Now, in case you’re wondering what the pair's other halves on ‘MAFS’ have to say about this new relationship, it turns out they actually got the blessing… of Rupert, at least.
The couple revealed in an interview with 9Entertainment: "Obviously [we] gave Rupert a call as well, and got the blessing from Rupert! He was very supportive as well.”
As for Alyssa, there has been no word on her thoughts as of yet, but boy are we waiting to hear what she has to say!
