The road to true love has been a long and winding one for MAFS duo Tracey Jewel and Sean Thomsen, both 35, from Perth. But the lovebirds are convinced they have found love and will be together – no matter what.
So what’s happened?
TRACEY: After ending it with Dean I was upset over the whole experience so flew back to Perth. Telv was in Melbourne with Sarah and I needed to speak with someone who understood what I’d been through, so I texted Sean and we met for a drink.
SEAN: It came as a massive shock but it was a pleasant surprise hearing from Tracey. I’d planned to ask her out before she even contacted me. I didn’t know if it would work out with Dean, but if it didn’t, I’d decided that I really wanted to ask her out.
So what does the future hold for you both?
TRACEY: We are moving to Melbourne! When we move there, I want to focus on my writing and Sean’s almost qualified as a personal trainer. I’ll travel to Perth regularly to see my daughter and she’ll come here on school holidays.
That’s full on! So you’ve said the ‘L-word’ then?
TRACEY: I went overseas for Christmas and New Year and really missed Sean. As soon as I landed I told him I loved him. He felt the same way. We’re deeply in love.
What about the text messages that made Sean blow up at Dean?
TRACEY: Sending those texts when we were no longer together was inappropriate. It made it worse that Dean knew I was with Sean. I’ve no idea what was going on in Dean’s head. If he was trying to make me jealous it didn’t work. I’d sent Dean shots of me in lingerie but that was while we were in a relationship. It just underlined to me that I’d made the right decision to leave Dean. The texts stopped after the Reunion.
Dean and Tracey's sexy texts revealed
They’re the texts Australia has been desperate to see, and finally New Idea can exclusively reveal exactly what was in them. While there are some details and photos which need to be left out because they are too scandalous for print – including Dean in his budgie smugglers – the saucy conversation is shocking!
