Michael said that while he enjoyed the self-care session, it wasn’t his first choice. He’d actually wanted to spend time with his parents, but they were on holiday.

Michael’s freedom comes after he and fiancée Martha Kalifatidis tested positive to Covid-19 after a whirlwind trip to North America in December.

‘Covid sucks. It is so f**king s**t. Some people are like, “It’s just a cold,” but it is a pretty s**t one. It’s like tonsillitis, gastro and the flu in one,’ Martha said last week.

She added that Michael did ‘projectile vomit’ at the start of his symptomatic period, which is quite uncommon.

Martha and Michael met on Married At First Sight in 2019 and announced their engagement late last year.
