Hours before Wednesday night’s episode of Married at First Sight aired, Hayley shared with Mamamia exactly what happened before, after and during the toothbrush incident.
You know… the one where David films himself using her toothbrush to clean poo from the toilet bowl. He scrubs it into the faeces, rinses the toothbrush in the bowl and returns the toothbrush for Hayley to use.
According to Hayley, there was a lot of context viewers weren’t shown.
Just to recap, for anyone who’s not fully across the ins and outs of Australia’s most bizarre dating show:
- Hayley is (fake) married to David
- Michael is (fake) married to Stacey
- Michael kissed Hayley during a drunken night out
- David, in an act of revenge, engaged in the vile act with the toothbrush.
But Hayley says after the cheating allegations emerged of her and Michael, the cast went on a two-week break. At the time of the cheating rumours, she and David were already sleeping in separate rooms.
“After that situation, we didn’t speak to each other for a week. I couldn’t actually say we were a couple, it was over but that doesn’t justify what happened by any means – that’s really important to say,” Hayley says.
“The dinner party was filmed two weeks after the cheating allegations came out. When they found out, they shut production for two weeks.”

Last night, Hayley told cameras that Mishel warned her not to use her toothbrush but Hayle tells Mamamia that it was actually Natasha who first told her roughly four or five days after the incident had occurred.
“Natasha had sent me a text message saying not to use my toothbrush. She had the room next to me so I went over to her room and she goes ‘Hayley you can’t say anything, Mishel has told me and I wanted to tell you because it has something to do with your health and safety’,” she says.
“I absolutely lost my shit. I broke down, I was screaming.”
Hayley labelled David’s actions as “physical abuse” and says she wishes she had gone to the police during the filming of the show.
