Married At First Sight Australia star dies aged 72 as emotional tributes pour in

Mel Schilling teases Married at First Sight Australia’s return

Married At First Sight Australia star Trisha Stratford has died at the age of 72.

Trisha’s MAFS colleague, fellow original expert John Aiken, announced her death on Instagram.

“I’m heartbroken and devastated that my friend and dear colleague Trisha has passed away,” he wrote alongside photos of himself with Trisha.

“We shared an amazing seven seasons of MAFS together.

“She loved everything New Zealand, relationships, the All Blacks, the Black Caps, French wine and travelling the world. I’ll miss you, Tish.

“Thank you for all the memories.”

Channel Nine said the network was “deeply saddened” to hear of Trisha’s death.

“Our sincerest condolences and heartfelt sympathies go out to her family and those closest during this difficult time,” the spokesperson said.

The former expert announced that she would be leaving the show in 2020 – and moving back to New Zealand from Sydney.

“After seven seasons of Married At First Sight I have decided to step back from the television series to focus on my writing, research and neuropsychotherapy,” she said at the time.

“The program provides a platform for an ongoing conversation on relationships and I wish the program continued success and hope future participants find everlasting love.”

She was replaced by clinical sexologist, Alessandra Rampolla.
