Channel Nine promised this year’s season Married At First Sight would be bigger and better than ever before – and viewers are about to find out why.
Daily Mail Australia can exclusively reveal there will be a ‘wife swapping’ storyline in the coming weeks that is even more scandalous than Dean Wells and Davina Rankin’s infamous ‘affair’.
Sam Ball will leave his ‘wife’ Elizabeth Sobinoff and move on with fellow bride Ines Basic, multiple sources have confirmed.

The tradesman, 26, also sensationally quits the show in the ‘third week of filming’, with an insider claiming: ‘He just says it was the biggest mistake and regrets it all.’
According to a source close to production, Sam wanted to leave the experiment as soon as he ‘married’ Elizabeth and felt he was ‘giving producers what they wanted’ by turning his attention to Ines.
‘It wasn’t serious with Ines, he just felt trapped on the show and wasn’t happy with Elizabeth,’ they added.
Interestingly, on the night the whole cast met for the first time at a dinner party, Ines apparently joked about them having an ‘orgy’.

In the wake of the ‘scandal’, a total of four contestants left the show: Sam and Elizabeth, and Ines and her ‘husband’ Bronson Norrish.
‘Intruders’ were then brought in half-way through filming after producers decided they needed more ‘young, sexy’ cast members to replace them.
Shortly after quitting the social experiment, Sam began a relationship with a woman outside of the show named Akila Ahmunett.
They have been pictured together on social media and are ‘in a relationship’ on Sam’s secret Facebook account, where he goes by the name Roman Winston.
‘They have been together since the start of December but have known each other for a year,’ another source told Daily Mail Australia.

A photo has also surfaced of Sam and Akila cuddling at a house party on New Year’s Eve. In the picture, he appears to be touching her breasts.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Nine for comment.
In a recent Facebook post, Sam thanked Akila for supporting him through a difficult few months, which included suffering a serious injury in December.

‘When you think the roller coaster has ended, yet it continues,’ Sam wrote.
‘Now I’m laying in a hospital bed, thinking how lucky a man I am to have a woman with such a heart that she comes to my aid with a caring, solicitous and genuine concern for my well being.’
Married At First Sight continues Monday at 7:30pm on Channel Nine
