Married At First Sight Australia's Mike goes Instagram official with new girlfriend after bitter split from ex Heidi

MARRIED At First Sight Australia's Mike Gunner confirmed he's in a new relationship on Instagram after his bitter split from ex wife Heidi Latchman.

Mike, 45, revealed he's dating Sonja Marcelline as the pair cosied up in a photo on a night out.

He captioned their snap: "My girl" and tagged Sonja in other photos on his Instagram story.

Mike married the mum-of-two on series six of the reality TV show, which is only now being aired on E4 in the UK.

They managed to go all the way on the show and were fan favourites, but at one point Sea FM radio presenter Heidi, who was 38 when she married Mike, got upset over the way Mike had spoken to her.

Heidi claimed Mike had spoken to her aggressively: "This morning I was asleep, I coughed, the cough woke me up, and I coughed about 10 times, and then you went, ‘Can you put a pillow over your mouth when you cough?'"

Fighting back tears, she added: "I’m so shocked at how you spoke to me!"

Though the pair decided to remain married after the show ended, they eventually split with Heidi saying that they "didn't share the same values".

Following the split, Mike said in an interview that he "couldn’t make Heidi happy".

But she hit back on an episode of Talking Married and said: "I don’t ever look for someone to make me happy.

"That’s not why I go into a relationship. I make myself happy, and then I look for someone to enjoy my life with, so that’s not true."

Despite their fallout, Mike is still hugely popular with viewers.

Seeing his newfound happiness on Instagram, one said: "Watching from the UK; loving you on the show. Hope you’re keeping well and keep being you x"

Another said: "You deserve to be happy Mike , ur a good guy !"

And one more wrote: "I am in UK and addicted to MAFS, so glad to see you are happy and in love, you so deserve it. You are one of my favourites, true to yourself, one of the few x"

It comes after Married At First Sight newcomer Billy quit the show last night after being bullied by "most hated wife" Susie.
