MARRIED at First Sight Australia star Samantha Harvey has given a glimpse inside her “squalid home” that she shares with her two kids.
The property developer, 31, is one of 24 singletons looking for love on the on the eighth series of the Aussie show.
The first episode aired on Monday night on E4 and last night it was Samantha’s turn to tie the knot with her new husband Cameron Dunne, 32.
Before her big day, the mum-of-two opened up about why she was looking for love on camera from the comfort of her own home.
She explained that she was married for nearly 10 years and her husband had been cheating on her for half of their marriage.
Samantha has gone on to bring up her sons Charlie and Tommy in a lovely home.
The kitchen boasts simple white walls and she’s added a feminine touch to the space with a range of fresh flowers.
The reality star can catch up on her emails on her Apple Mac computer placed in the corner of the room.
It also has a huge double door fridge freezer, shiny navy cupboards and a wooden top island with black metal high chairs to sit on.
In the living room there are wooden floors, comfy white sofas and plenty of natural light let in through the huge windows.
The show was filmed in September last year and since then Samantha and the boys have moved into a new pad.
The star – who is from Canberra – broke down in tears as she opened up about how her marriage breakdown changed her life.
She said: “I packed a garbage bag, I got the two kids and I was out.
“I think I had $1.50 left in my account.
“I felt like I had failed the kids. All I could afford was the s******t house you’ve ever seen in your lie.
“There was cat wee dripping from the carpet, I actually would take the boys to the tip to buy our furniture…
“It was squalor (squalid). That was not where I wanted to end up.”
Samantha completed all DIY tasks herself and gave her home a makeover by watching YouTube videos.
The blonde beauty admitted that she does get lonely and wants to share her life with somebody.
She told the experts: “I’d love to fall in love. I always got 50 per cent in because when it does break down… I don’t hurt.”
Married At First Sight Australia continues tonight at 7.30pm on E4
