Opening up to her husband, Heidi explained that she regretted their final date.

“But what is scarier is not being with you. You’re amazing how you are.”

Mike then turned the tables on Heidi.

He replied: “Are you going to be kind to me, though? So, you acknowledge that you haven’t been?”

Heidi later apologised to Mike.

Speaking to the camera separately, Mike said: “I don’t know what to think right now. I feel like I’m in shock. I know she has been sabotaging from day one, but I’m relieved to see she is aware of it now.”

Later on in the episode, the couple were embroiled in a tense discussion with Jessika Power and Dan Webb.

What did MAFSA viewers say?

However, some viewers weren’t happy with Mike’s attitude.

Taking to Twitter, one said: “#MAFSA Mike has managed to convince Heidi that their [bleep] relationship is all her fault. He is smug and a deluded bully.”

A second wrote: “Completely gaslighting Heidi.”

A third agreed: “Yes gaslighting! I’m glad others can see it. Could see it from episode one.”

In addition, a fourth shared: “I’m sorry but as much as Heidi overreacts and overthinks, Mike’s continued self-righteousness, egotism and victim complex is infuriating and borders on emotional manipulation.”

Meanwhile, others praised Mike over the way he handled his drama with Jessika.

One said: “Am I the only one applauding how Mike is dealing with that hideous human Jessika? I think he’s bloody wonderful.”

Another shared: “Good on Mike for calling out Jess, someone had to do it.”
