Married At First Sight's Cathy Evans has revealed she's moved on following her failed 'marriage' with Josh Pihlak.

During an exclusive Instagram Live chat with Yahoo Lifestyle, Cathy revealed that she was ecstatic to see the end credits roll on the show's finale.

However, in the final episode, Cathy and Josh weren't given much air time, so, when asked if she had wanted to say anything during the finale she said, "I would have said that I really tried so hard in the relationship and, if anything, it was a blessing that it didn't work out.

"Because I've found someone so much better now and I think that I've worked on character development for myself and it's helped me see that I'm actually a really strong and patient person. I guess that's probably all I could say because there's nothing more to say about our relationship now.

Speaking more about her mystery man she revealed, "They're just a private person, they're not a person who's famous or anything, it's just a normal citizen of Australia."

She went on to say, "My current partner is my dream man! Now I feel like I've hit the jackpot!"

Explaining how they met, she said, "We knew each other at the beginning of last year and then we decided to catch up after the show and he hadn't known that I was on the show so it just sort of happened really organically after a couple of chats and meetups and it just kind of fell into place. It was kind of an unspoken thing like yeah we were together and then we finally made it official a few months ago. And life's been good!"

Cathy added that he's been watching a few of her MAFS episodes, but not all of them, "Only a few episodes, if I knew that something was going to come up that was perhaps going to be a bit uncomfortable to watch I would say, 'Maybe you should be in another room.'"

And things are going very well between them, with Cathy revealing they're currently self-isolating together amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"I luckily can work from home, my job allows me to work from the computer at home... I try to do the home workouts when I can but it's so unmotivating," she said.

"I'm staying with my partner, so I've been working from his house and it's been great being in isolation with someone who's pretty hot."

When asked about Josh and whether she could see her relationship with him ever mending she said, "No, no I'm done!"

During the finale episode Josh mentioned that he would text Cathy so they could catch up after filming ended, but Cathy said that never actually happened.

"No, I don't even know why he said that, we weren't at that level of friendship. In fact, we are not friends at all, so when he said that I remember going, 'What are you talking about? Catching up for a beer? No way, I'd rather put a bullet through my foot!'"

Clearly, things aren't great between these two!
