Married At First Sight UK's Thomas Kriaras shared a touching message to Rozz Darlington after their tough split and said he will 'always be proud' of his ex-partner despite their emotional journey.
Thomas and Rozz quickly won the hearts of viewers as they watched their relationship grow from shy smiles and awkward chats to deep bonds and romantic moments. After a few weeks, they confessed to each other that they could see themselves falling in love.
The pair seemed inseparable and even became a couple that the other contestants admired and believed in. But it all fell apart during the challenging Homestay Week when Rozz realised Thomas wasn't the one for her. This led to a painful breakup, with Thomas packing his bags and leaving her home.
During the commitment ceremony, which saw Thomas escorted out by medics, Rozz made the heartbreaking confession that she didn't want to have children with him. This was one of the reasons she started 'checking out' of the relationship despite it going from strength to strength.
Thomas had to mourn their relationship in the public eye, with viewers at home shedding tears along with him. He had to relive the painful commitment ceremony seven months later as fans watched it for the first time. Thomas has since moved on and some fans will be pleased to hear he still holds a lot of love and respect for Rozz.
Speaking to The Mirror, the star expressed how 'proud' he is watching her growth. He also appreciated her honesty with him about their relationship. He shared: "She didn't let guilt override her decision to be with me because so many people just ride it out. They just go with it until they can't and with her…"
"I really appreciate how honest she was with me because so many times and, anyone can relate to this, we've all been in relationships where it's ended. And we've we haven't had the honesty so we didn't get that closure. So I knew where I stood with every point in this experiment, both good and bad. And I wouldn't have changed the outcome. Yeah, I felt like it was needed."
He went on to discuss how much she changed during the course of the experiment, noticing how her confidence shot through the roof over the weeks.
Thomas added: "Her confidence is night and day. Her confidence and capability to make decisions on her own is dramatically different. She always struggled to make those decisions on her own without her family's support because they've always been there for her."
