MAFS' Ryan breaks silence on outing with Ashley

Olivia Morris

Married At First Sight star Ryan Gallagher has spoken out about his not-so-secret outing with Ashley Irvin which sparked rumours of a romance.

The 29-year-old admitted to the Canberra Times he did ring her up while he was in Queensland to help his father, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, on a building job.

So, does this mean Ryan and Ashley have tossed their respective MAFS partners Davina and Troy out the window for each other? Not quite.

"I rang her and said, 'What are you doing?'" Ryan told the publication.

Ashley wasn't working that day and was just playing tennis so Ryan decided to join her.

On their way back from their tennis jaunt, the pair needed to stop at the shops.

"And on the way back, her parents wanted something from Woollies so we stopped in the shops and the video was taken," Ryan explained.

He also insisted there is definitely no romance between the two of them.

"It looks like we're bloody going back to our own apartment," he said. "But we're definitely not together. Just friends."

We guess that settles that then, but we do think this pair would make a good couple.

Neither Ryan or Ashley have been enjoying their matches on Married At First Sight, with both having difficulties within their 'marriages'.

Tradie Ryan sensationally discovered he'd been cheated on by his 26-year-old model 'wife' Davina with Dean Wells, when he discovered they'd been secretly meeting up behind his back.

Ashley's hubby Troy has also been spotted making out with another contestant, Carly.
