She relocated to the UK with her family earlier this year to serve as an expert on the British version of Married At First Sight.
But Mel Schilling looked thrilled to be back in Australia on Monday as she was spotted leaving a Sydney hotel after completing 14 days of mandatory quarantine.
The 49-year-old relationship guru was seen carrying her luggage off a trolley and placing it into a waiting car.

Alessandra arrived Australia last month and has already completed hotel quarantine.
Meanwhile, MAFS producers are breathing a sigh of relief after the Covid lockdown had them scrambling to find alternate locations to film the weddings.
The NSW government recently announced that weddings can go ahead, albeit with a maximum of only five guests.
Casting for MAFS’ ninth season is under way in Sydney, but production has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The show is typically filmed from late August to December, but the 2022 season will most likely begin filming later this month and conclude in March.
