Married At First Sight Expert Trisha Stratford Has Died

Trisha Stratford of Married At First Sight Australia has died at the age of seventy-two years old. Her co-star confirmed the devastating news via social media.

Stratford joined the dating show back in 2015, alongside John Aiken and Sabina Read. She worked on the show for 7 seasons before leaving in 2020.

Married At First Sight is a dating show with a cult following, thanks to its ingenious concept. Couples are paired up based on sociological and scientific reasoning, with experts from all sorts of areas combining their knowledge to try and bring the perfect couple together.

The pair then, as the name of the show would suggest, get married just minutes after meeting for the first ever time.

Stratford’s role on the show as a clinical neuropsychologist was crucial in ensuring the contestants had a fair shot at going the distance.

Her colleague John Aiken confirmed the news of her passing via social media.

“I’m heartbroken and devastated that my friend and dear colleague Trisha has passed away,” he wrote. “We shared an amazing seven seasons of MAFS together. She loved everything New Zealand, relationships, the All Blacks, the Black Caps, French wine and travelling the world. I’ll miss you Tish. Thank you for all the memories…”

People have rushed to the comments section to share their heartbreak at the news.

“Devastating… such a divine woman,” one person wrote.

A second said: “We are so sorry John, devastating.”
