Are Tom Powell and Tamara Joy still together?

The Love Island and Married At First Sight Australia stars went public last year

Married At First Sight Australia Tamara Joy Love Island Tom Powell romance

by Nathan Katnoria |

Here at heat there’s nothing we love more than a cross-reality romance, so we were thrilled last July when a couple of stars from two of our favourite dating shows have confirmed they’re an item.

It appeared to be the real deal too as one half of the couple, Married At First Sight Australia star Tamara Joy, upped sticks and moved from the Gold Coast to the UK to be with her new fella.

So, just who was the lucky guy? None other than Tom Powell of Love Island series two (and err, rating fans’ genitals) fame.

The Welsh lad confirmed the romance during an interview when asked who the “love of his life” was.

“Well I'm dating someone off Married At First Sight,” he revealed during an appearance on Love Island Extra with Holly Burns and Simon Gross last summer.

"Do you know the Australian Married At First Sight? So, Tamara off there.

“She's flown over from Australia. She's been here for a month, six weeks now. She's in the other room over there."

Sam Ball and Elizabeth Sobinoff

Sam and Elizabeth might not have lasted, as Sam seemed far more interested in Ines. But Lizzie was the true winner - she was so popular with viewers she appeared on the next series of the show, finding love with Seb Guilhaus. But, sadly, they split earlier this month after a year together.

Tom and Tamara later went Instagram official when he shared a group photo of his pals on Instagram, with the Aussie reality star seen in the background.

Tom’s revelation comes just weeks after Tamara revealed she was secretly dating someone new.

“I am dating someone, it's going well but I am going to keep that to myself. It is quite fresh, you’ll have to just wait and see,” she told The Sun at the time.

And having traded in Australia for a new life in the UK, Tamara added, “I have some work coming up, just little bits and pieces really. I definitely want to be here long-term."

Tamara rose to fame on series six of Married At First Sight Australia which, although filmed three years ago, only aired in the UK earlier this year. On the show, she was paired up with Dan Webb, but their marriage came to an end when he cheated on her with fellow star Jessika Power.

Despite all the on-screen drama, Tamara admitted that a huge row with Dan which left her "terrified" was never shown.

She explained, "We had loads of beers, it was a great day. But Dan started to get loud and aggressive. I could see a switch flick in his head. It switches on when he drinks and he says really nasty things.

"[Later, back at the apartment] I started cooking eggs on toast. Suddenly he stormed out of the bedroom. I was holding my plate, trying to walk out nd he pushed me back and slam­med the fridge door closed.

"My plate smashed on the floor. I was terrified. He’s a big guy, I didn’t know him well. I ran out of the apart­ment crying. I went to the resident producer and demand­ed she get me another apartment."

Are Tom Powell and Tamara Joy still together?

Tom and Tamara are either sadly no longer an item or are keeping their romance extremely lowkey as they haven't been spotted on each other's social media since the 2016 Islander posted the first snap of the pair with friends back in July. However, if they have split it seems there's no bad blood as the snap is still live on Tom's profile and Tamara is still tagged.

However, the pair no longer follow each other on Instagram which is probably a major clue that they've broken up.

Despite appearing to have ended things with Tom, Tamara still lives in the UK and is currently based in Leeds.
