MAFS's Timothy on giving Lucinda "eight chances"Channel 4

Married at First Sight Australia's Timothy Smith has opened up on his relationship with Lucinda Light, claiming he gave her "eight chances" before they lost contact.

Timothy and Lucinda were paired up on the 11th season reality show and, although they ultimately decided to break things off, seemingly remained close friends after the show ended.

However, the duo unfollowed each other on Instagram last month, with Timothy later revealing that they have since drifted apart and lost contact with each other.

Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle about why they are no longer friends, Timothy claimed that Lucinda was a "little different" to how she had been during filming.

"The cameras do that to people," he added. "Lucinda may have buckled under the pressure with so many people wanting a piece of her."

The reality star went on to say that he "didn't walk away easily" from their friendship, but felt like "eight chances was enough".

While Timothy wishes for Lucinda to find "even more success in her new adventures," he told the publication that he didn't want to be a "pawn".

"Hearing bits and pieces that were untrue, stuff that was twisted, that has been disappointing," he continued. "I think some people, and I am not just saying Lucinda, but some people have let this spot of notoriety go to their head and I didn't want to go down that path.

"The show is over, I had a good time but I really want to go back to my normal life and be me again without the lens of that TV show. People have become their characters and that is a dangerous path to go down. You can lose yourself."

Digital Spy have reached out to Lucinda for comment in response.

Lucinda also recently discussed the status of their relationship while responding to a fan who questioned if they were still on "speaking to terms," with the star replying via Instagram: "Hopefully one day Tim is up for being friends. I certainly am."
