MAFS star Mike Gunner reveals just how much producers influence contestants

1 min read


It's been floating around the rumour mill for some time now but Mike Gunner, of MAFS and that one terrible short-film thing, has revealed to Nova that he and wife Heidi are still together.

Mike joined Ash, Kip, Luttsy & Susie O’Neill, where he mentioned his deep regret for controversial “I am not your therapist” honeymoon comments to Heidi.

“It was a catastrophic brain failure. No question. I am not that kind of guy.”

Cutting straight to the chase, Luttsy asked “Do you have your wedding ring on now?”, to which Mike indicated that he did. But it was when Luttsy asked about a requirement from MAFS producers to wear the ring for publicity purposes that Mike perhaps revealed more than he should have.

“You do (have to wear it for the producers) actually, but I’ve got it on because I’m still with her”.

Hold the phone.

When asked to clear up his answer, Mike may have realised he revealed something he wasn’t supposed to:

“…yeah, well emotionally (we’re still together) yeah. If not physically, I mean we’re living apart but we’ve got a good relationship and things are going well.”

Bombshell, right?

Earlier in the chat, Gold Coast-based Mike said he wasn’t worried about Heidi’s new gig on Sunshine Coast radio as “it’s only a couple of hours away.”

Curiouser and curiouser.
