Mike Gunner, MAFS star, new novel debut

He could have declared himself heartbroken after separating from his wife, Maridi At First Sight, Heidi Latcham, but Mike Gunner seems to have done well and truly.

On Monday, Women's Day posted photos of Mike, 43, getting cozy with Jessica Williamson, 30, on a Gold Coast beach last week.

According to the magazine, Jessica works as a truck driver fly-out fly-out.
The new couple were kissed and hugged on the beach and holding hands while they swam.

Mike also praised his new love on social media, describing her as "beautiful" when commenting on a series of photos of Jessica shared by a Gold Coast talent agency.

In an interview with U On Sunday of this weekend, Mike confirmed that he was dating a 30-year-old woman for five weeks, however, he did not refer to Jessica by name.

Mike said the two met when he saw her on her porch on the way back from the gym and she recognized him from MAFS.

Despite increasing lyricism about his new relationship, Mike also admitted he still had a strong sexual attraction for his former Heidi.

"If she came in here now my knees would be weak, such was her effect on me. I mean, I'm just a man," Mike said of Heidi.

"As long as I have blood running through my veins, I will probably always find her attractive."

Jessica is not the first woman Mike has been involved with since the MAFS ended, with reports that he was "secretly dating" Casey Stewart, 26.

Casey is the daughter of the Instagram star, Gina Stewart, 49, who is known as the "World's Hottest Granny".

After weeks of rumors that they separated after the swearing-in ceremony, Mike and Heidi's breakup was finally confirmed during the episodes of the MAFS meeting.

During a radio interview earlier this month, Mike said he was single and had no interest in dating.

"I'm just going to lick my wounds a little," he told the Hit96.9 Josiah & Elly of the Goulburn Valley. "I just need to regroup and be me a little."

During his time at Married At First Sight, Mike divided viewers, facing a negative reaction to some of the comments he made during filming, including telling Heidi "I'm not his therapist" when she was recounting her traumatic childhood.

But his most controversial moment came during the final, when he decided to tell the MAFS brides that "biology" caused more conflict between them than men.

"There are differences between men and women, do not confuse that," he said.
"I mean, matriarchy and patriarchy are two completely different things, and there are different dynamics at play.

"We're seeing these girls crumbling and not men.

"Any group of women who are placed in this same type of situation, maybe this (group situations) simply does not talk to their biology … there's really some merit in that."

Despite his somewhat divisive time in the limelight, Mike seems willing to stay in the audience's eyes by launching a Youtube podcast earlier this month.

Mike previously told that the podcast would be "long-running discussions about issues that worry me and that may benefit society in some way."
