Dean Wells of Married At First Sight Australia has revealed text messages from his ex-wife she explicitly asked him to keep private.
Tracey Jewel dumped her husband at the end of the show's 2018 season, following his on-camera cheating with Davina Rankin.
In the private messages leaked by Dean, a drunk Tracey - who recently split from another boyfriend - asks if it's "too late" to save their marriage.
Although he promised to "never show anyone" the messages, Dean appears to have sold them to the Daily Mail.
The full transcript of the messages is as follows:
Tracey: Can I text you something you promise never to show anyone because I'm drunk
Dean: Ha ok sure
Tracey: You really got under my skin the last few days
Dean: Awww oh well. Too bad u broke up with me at the final vows
Tracey: Is it too late?
Tracey: I'm only going to ask once
Dean: Tracey... u know that boat has sailed babe
Dean: I wanna be friends and I care about u a lot but that boat has sailed babe
Tracey: Yep I'm drunk
Tracey: Please keep this between us
Following the publication of her private messages online, Tracey took to Instagram with an inspiring message about sitting up strong "against hatred and lies".
