Store manager Elizabeth has repeatedly slammed her TV husband's failure to make contact while her travelled for the memorial service, but a MAFS insider is spilling the tea on why Sam didn't call home.
Former MAFS star Telv Williams took to Instagram stories to share his two cents on the subject, claiming: 'I can guarantee you the producers would have told him he wasn't allowed to make any contact with his wife because you're not meant to talk to them.'
The 34-year-old FIFO worker went on to reveal couple's are actively discouraged from speaking to each other off-screen as TV execs want to save the drama for the camera.
'Don't be too harsh to Sam, he's done nothing wrong... f**k you experts!' the father-of-two added.
Telv featured on the 2018 series of MAFS which saw him enjoy wed Sarah Roza and enjoy a short lived romance before officially announcing their split on March 24.
In addition to the honeymoon fiasco, part-time model Sam continues to receive a barrage of backlash over his body shaming comments about Elizabeth.
On seeing his bride for the first time, he told the camera: 'I've never really dated girls as big as Elizabeth before.
'We'll get her running in the mornings or something - we'll be alright.'
