Married at First Sight’s Olivia Frazer and Jackson Lonie have been spotted at a luxury jewellery store together, so are they about to take the next step and get engaged?

New photos of the duo visiting House of K’Dor jewellers in Double Bay, Sydney showed Olivia trying rings on her left ring finger while Jackson watched on.

The controversial MAFS bride was snapped grinning at her on-screen husband with a massive diamond ring on her finger, supposedly worth over $100,000 in photos shared by the Daily Mail.

Jackson was then seen paying for jewellery and the couple left with a white bag, sharing a kiss as they walked away from the store.

It probably shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Jackson and Olivia are thinking about taking the next step in their relationship, given how strong their connection was on the show.

Despite emotional ups and downs, the pair remained in the experiment until the very end, when Olivia told Jackson she loved him at their final vows.

Though Jackson wasn’t quite there yet, he assured his on-screen wife that he was very much falling for her.

Now the photos of the pair supposedly shopping for engagement rings seems to confirm that Jackson has well and truly fallen for Olivia, despite the controversy that surrounded her on the show.

Olivia faced massive backlash after sharing a nude photo of fellow bride Domenica Calarco taken from her OnlyFans account and refusing to apologise.

But some fans claim the new photos of Jackson and Olivia were staged to shift the conversation away from Olivia’s “villain edit” on the show.

Fans pointed out that all the photos seemed very clear and “posed”, especially shots of Olivia and Jackson smiling and kissing outside the jewellery store.

“The pap had to be standing right in front of them to get that shot, there’s no way they’re real,” one superfan told Now To Love.

Another fan took to Facebook to insist the photos – and the jewellery Jackson appeared to buy – “had to be sponsored”.

There’s a long history of celebs staging paparazzi photos in a bid to “have control of their own image”, New York City paparazzo Justin Steffman told Cosmopolitan in 2016.

“Many setup photos include a paid product endorsement, where a photo agency works as a middleman between a celebrity and a company who has a product to sell,” he said.

“It could be … something as simple as them being seen shopping at a certain retail outlet.”

But the couple has been going strong since the show ended, even moving in together, so it doesn’t seem too unbelievable that – after being fake married on the show – they’d be ready to consider a real engagement.

Perhaps the photos were just a case of a photographer being in the right place at the right time?
