Where are Claire and Jesse from Married at First Sight Australia now?

Claire initially denied the allegations and the pair exchanged some tense words but, in scenes that have not yet aired, they then sat down for another commitment ceremony and opened up about how to handle the situation. Jesse told the experts and his fellow contestants: "Claire cheated on me.

"I have stretched myself so much. I came into this saying that my fight or flight kicks in real quick and I'm quick to end things early on so I really stretched myself... but this comment really brought back a lot of things that I had been pushing to the side."

Eventually, the pair decided to part ways and they both decided to opt for "leave" when asked about their future on the show. It's safe to say they won't be reuniting anytime soon…
