Married at First Sight’s Alessandra Rampolla also took to the social media platform to express her sorrow; revealing how Bondi was her “home away from home”.

“I’ve lived in Bondi since I first began travelling to Australia to film MAFS in 2020,” she said. “It was literally the place I was taken to the moment I was able to leave hotel quarantine!

“It’s where I’ve built profound friendships, amazing memories and mindful community. It’s my home away from home.”
