Cam spoke to 9Entertainment about the end of his relationship with Coco, where he said: "There was a conversation to see if we could come back to the experiment together, but it just wasn’t the case.

He has also been working with a mental health charity to raise money for ‘people battling addiction challenges’.
Alana and Jason
While the couple did make it all the way to the end of the show, they decided to call it quits when the cameras stopped rolling.
Things looked good for teacher Alana, 30, and construction estimator Jason, 35, and at the final commitment ceremony, they chose to remain in their marriage.
In April, Jason confirmed the sad news they had split, telling his Instagram followers: “Unfortunately, we couldn’t make it work outside of the experiment.
“Without outside influences I think we could have been an amazing couple but that wasn’t to be… maybe in the next lifetime hey.
“Alana is every bit the amazing woman Australia has seen and she deserves all the love and happiness in the world. As much as I wanted to give her that happiness I couldn’t. I’ll always have a place for you in my heart… Later crit.”
Alana moved on with new boyfriend Ben Michell after the show.
After the show, Jason went on to date MAFS season seven star KC Osborne, but the pair have now broken up.
Liam and Georgia
Things started out well for these two who bonded on their wedding day, but things ended in the final week.
Liam – who was the first openly bisexual groom on the show – fell out with his bride during the final dinner party.
Following their bust up, Georgia said at the last commitment ceremony: “Without warning, you turned on me, you humiliated me, and you degraded me in front of everyone.
“It was obvious how devastated I was, and yet you chose to abandon me that night when I needed you the most. I've never felt so small, inadequate, and confused.”
Liam was left furious by her comments as he slammed: “As much as I want to make this work, that just shows you don't know me, and I'm not gonna have a partner who doesn't know me.
“So, let's just call it quits. I'm done.”
He then stormed out of the room, before Georgia threw her wedding ring on the floor and burst into tears.
Liam is now happily loved up with former Married At First Sight New Zealand star, Samuel Levi.
Georgia decided to take some time for herself after the show and is seemingly single.
She now takes part in dressage competitions with her horse.
