“I gave up my life, I gave up my kids,” she said, adding: “My mum gave up her job… I went into this experiment with all my walls down because I wanted it to work so badly.

“Why did you set us up? Clearly my instructions were strong. We had a big chat, you know, about what I wanted and then… this is what I got delivered.”

Luckily, Jo cooled down after the show ended and made up with Sean.

Speaking to her partner, Jo said after the show: “I’ve had a blast – literally, I’ve had a blast – and haven’t laughed as hard for years and years. So, don’t ever think that you’re a disappointment to me.”

But she recently reflected on her experience on Instagram, writing: “What a fantastic experience even though the groom would think differently lol.

“I wouldn’t have change it for the world as I have totally made lifelong friendships out of the show.

“MAFS has taught me one thing, never try to convince somebody of your worth. If a person doesn’t appreciate you, they do not deserve you. Love yourself and always listen to your gut instinct because it’s always right.”

It looks as if Jo is still single, although she recently sparked speculation she could have a special someone by sharing a photo before a ‘date night’.

She spends her time taking care of her two children, and modelling for a fashion range.

The star also still hangs out with her MAFS co-stars, recently sharing snaps with Alycia Galbraith and Sarah Roza.
