Married At First Sight’s lesbian brides Amanda Micallef and Tash Herz call it quits

Published

After weeks of bickering, Married At First Sight‘s lesbian brides Amanda Micallef and Tash Herz reached breaking point at Wednesday’s dinner party.

The drama started before they’d even left their apartments, with Amanda telling a producer that she wanted to arrive to the dinner party alone.

‘I figured there was no point trying to be fake about the situation,’ Amanda, 34, said.

‘I don’t feel the need to walk in as friends… Let’s take off the mask and let’s cut the bulls**t,’ she continued.

Tash, 31, was less than impressed with the arrangement, fuming over her runaway bride as she drove to the dinner party alone. 

‘I would never have made her walk into this by herself,’ Tash said. ‘Passive aggressive s**t… she will regret her behaviour.’

'I would never have made her walk into this by herself!' Tash was stunned after a producer informed her that Amanda had requested they arrive to the dinner party separately

Amanda didn’t hold back once she arrived to the party, quickly getting into an argument with Hayley Vernon, who was on Tash’s side.

After Hayley, 32, continued to lecture Amanda about her relationship, the strength coach eventually ended the conversation and vented to producers behind the scenes.

‘Hayley hasn’t given me the time of day since I’ve been here, so to feel that this Amazon was coming at me on the couch, I was ready to knock her out,’ she seethed.

‘But I thought, “Nup, a real woman doesn’t need to create a scene to get her point across.”‘

Once Tash arrived, the pair shared a frosty hello before quickly parting ways.

Amanda remained outspoken during dinner, telling anybody who would listen about her disastrous marriage to Tash.

‘I just can’t be bothered being fake,’ Amanda said. ‘There’s no friendship there with her and I.’

'She will regret her behaviour': Tash was frustrated by how Amanda was acting

After she started discussing her failed marriage to Tash with Chris Nicholls and Vanessa Romito, Tash finally got fed up and jumped in.

‘If you don’t feel chemistry you don’t feel chemistry, full stop,’ said Tash.

‘I don’t know why we’re back here talking about this anyway,’ she added.

'I don't know why we're back here talking about this anyway!' Tash quickly shut down a conversation about her relationship with Amanda

As they continued to bicker, the show’s relationship experts deemed the marriage over.

‘Neither of them are taking any accountability in the breakdown of this relationship,’ mused Mel Schilling.

‘It’s over for these two and I feel really sad about it,’ John Aiken added.

Married At First Sight continues on Sunday at 7pm on Channel Nine.

Greg James failed to show up to his Breakfast Show on Radio 1 on Wednesday morning, after a wild night of partying at the BRIT Awards 2020.

The presenter was a no-show when his show came on air at 6:30am, leaving his colleague Adele Roberts to take over, after presenting her own early show from 4am.

Adele told listeners Greg was ‘a dirty little no-show’ as the team desperately tried to track down their star.

‘Good morning everybody it’s Radio 1 Breakfast with Adele Roberts,’ Adele began the show. ‘I can’t actually believe this is happening. Greg James is a no-show, a dirty little no-show, has anyone seen him?’

‘I’ve been trying to keep an eye on all of our little Radio 1 chickens this morning,’ she continued revealing she had been keeping tabs on her colleagues on social media as they partied.

‘The last time I saw him was on Grace, who used to work on Radio 1 Breakfast, on her Instagram about six hours ago, around midnight. If you do spot him please do send him our way.’

Later as it became apparent Greg was not on his way in, Adele joked she’d be filling in for all of Radio 1’s schedule of shows after fellow presenters Matt Edmondson, Mollie King, Scott Mills and Nick Grimshaw all spent their night partying at the BRITs. 

‘We can’t find anybody, I’ll be on for everybody!’ she laughed. 

Radio 1’s Arielle Free turned up to the studio at 7am in her dressing gown to help out along with Jordan North, with the pair surviving on a couple of hours sleep.

This year it was Mabel’s turn to accept the prize, with the up and coming star giving Ellie and Jorja an emotional hug as she arrived on stage.

Lewis Capaldi, Stormzy and Billie Eilish led the winners on Tuesday evening in a largely male dominated BRIT Awards shortlist. 

Lewis, 23, claimed two awards from four nominations, triumphing in the categories for New Artist and Song of the Year. 

The latter nomination was awarded for hit single Someone You Loved, a track Capaldi insisted was written for his late grandmother – not former girlfriend and current Love Island star Paige Turley.

Meanwhile Stormzy, 26, picked up the award for Best Male Solo Artist in front of a star-studded audience that included ex-girlfriend Maya Jama. 

Accepting his award, the grime star was quick to reference the gender disparity at this year’s ceremony by thanking the team of ‘brilliant women’ who form his management team.       

Rising superstar Billie Eilish, 18, received a nod in the International Female Solo Artist category alongside the likes of Lizzo and Ariana Grande

And after performing new James Bond soundtrack No Time To Die live for the first time, she claimed her first BRIT Award from former Spice Girl Mel C.  

Despite Billie’s success, only four nominations out of a possible 25 in the categories which are not gender-specific featured women. 

There were no female performers included in the shortlists for best group or album awards, although English singer Mabel, 23, was nominated for three awards and ultimately claimed one of the biggest of the night – Best British Female Artist.
