Why did Sara and Tim break up?

Sara and Tim reportedly broke up due to him being seen on a dating app and making comments about not picking Sara during final vows.

According to So Dramatic! fellow MAFS contestant Jade confronted Tim at the reunion after she discovered he was on a dating app, despite him being in a relationship with Sara.

A source told the site: "Jade dropped a huge bombshell that her friend had recently seen Tim on Tinder.

"Sara was completely caught off guard. She was embarrassed because they had been sitting there all loved up all night."

However Tim is said to have defended his actions, saying: "he was on there because he works in marketing, and it’s a marketing thing."

Whilst Sara chose to believe him, this wasn't the end of their issues.

Fellow groom Jonathan McCullough, 38, is said to have revealed that Tim told him: "If he had more time, he might have made a different decision about staying with Sara at the Final Vows."

The source then added: "Sara was completely blindsided and hurt because they were still together and doing so well. She was really upset and crying."

This apparently was the final nail in the coffin, with the insider explaining: "Tim and Sara were so strong once they got into the real world and there were no cameras or the pressure of the experiment.

"But then Sara was made aware of Tim’s conversations with other cast members, and this essentially broke them up.

"Behind closed doors, Tim was telling Sara how into her he was, how happy he was with her, how glad he was that she made it up to him and how much effort she had put in, and that he could really see himself being with her. But then he was saying something completely different to the rest of the cast."
