Married At First Sight Australia's Matthew Bennett told told Lorraine he hopes he has found the one in new girlfriend Bella after his doomed relationship with Lauren Huntriss.

The TV star admits he was naive to think that he would find true love on a TV show and live happily ever after.

Speaking via video link, Matthew said: "Honestly, I was kind of sincere in that I thought I may be matched with my perfect partner and I might fall in love, but there was a lot of naivety with it.

"It was a trial by fire. I learned a lot and it is because of those lessons that I got the confidence to approach Bella."

As his girlfriend playfully admitted she thought it was she who made the first move, he laughed: "OK, well there is debate who approached who but the other thing about that show it showed me exactly what I didn't want and what I was looking for.

"It was a painful thing to do through but it was good in the long run."

Asked how she is finding her partner's fame, Bella told Lorraine: "I am from the UK so I didn't even know what the show was.

"He told me on our first date he had been on TV… i thought oh whatever. Men come out with stuff.

"I thought it was going to have been on Sky 800 and not a big deal and then it turned out to be the most watched show in Australia.

"I am aware now but it was difficult for me to get my head round at first. It was a shock and I think I am still in denial about how big it was."

Asked if he has seen the series, Matt insisted he would not be able to watch any of the programme.

He firmly said: "I can't, it is to triggering.

"There are some things better left in the past.

"I have a theory that this feels like they matched some of the polar opposites and that is where the drama sparks from.

"I see the wedding as a soap wedding. The amount of times we had to retakes, I don't count it as a proper wedding."
