‘I’m now 99 percent sure that she’s catfished me. It’s not the real girl in the photo, which is quite funny. You can laugh, it’s fine,’ he said.

Ryan then asked his 240,000 followers to help him find the woman whose photos were used in the catfisher’s Tinder profile.

‘I just want to know if anyone knows the person in the photo, the real girl. She’s quite pretty’ he said, optimistically.

The woman in the photos messaged Ryan on Instagram three hours later, telling him she’d been alerted to the scam by a friend.

But Ryan’s hopes for a romance were dashed when she told him she was already in a relationship.

She then asked the MAFS star to report the catfisher’s profile to Tinder.

Moving on from the incident, Ryan said he would ‘keep on looking’ for Mrs Right.

In January this year, Ryan was linked to Aussie actress Melina Vidler, but he denied they were ever a couple. 

He said at the time: ‘When love comes, it comes. I’ll be ready to drop anchor when it does.’

Ryan rose to fame on season five of Married At First Sight in 2018. He was paired with Davina Rankin, who infamously cheated on him with Dean Wells.
