‘I suppose that swayed their decision’: MAFS’ Mike Gunner suggests the real reason Jules and Cam snubbed him from their Sydney engagement party
Married At First Sight’s Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant celebrated their engagement party last month in Sydney.
And while many of their co-stars enjoyed the festivities, Mike Gunner was notably absent from the glamorous soiree on April 21.
Appearing on Wednesday’s Today Extra, the TV groom said it was ‘a shame’ he wasn’t invited, and suggested the couple had snubbed him on purpose.

Mike was ‘married’ to radio star Heidi Latcham on the show, but insists he no longer speaks to his TV ex-wife.
While the electrician claims he’s ‘good mates’ with Cam, he suggested the soon-to-be-wed couple were possibly ‘conflicted’ about whether to invite him.
‘I suppose they didn’t want it to be awkward or uncomfortable with Heidi and I both in the room,’ Mike said on the Channel Nine show.

‘I suppose they made that decision to opt for Heidi, she is after all one of the bridesmaids for Jules. I suppose that swayed their decision somewhat,’ Mike said.
Along with Heidi, Mike’s co-stars Elizabeth Sobinoff, Billy Vincent, Mick Gould, Cyrell Paule and Jules’ other bridesmaid Melissa Lucarell were also in attendance.
Despite missing out on the lavish occasion, Mike said he wished nothing but the best for the two lovebirds.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Jules and Cam for comment.

The couple were also joined by family and friends, including Cameron’s cricket teammates and Jules’ work colleagues.
Jules has said she wouldn’t change much from their Married At First Sight wedding which aired in January – but added the new ceremony would be ‘huge’.
Cameron surprised Jules with a proposal on the show’s vow renewals.
