Tina, 30, who was overseas when Cameron was scouted in August, is said to have only found out he left her to go on the show, when he was featured in the adverts for the Channel Nine reality series. 

One of Tina's friends wrote on Facebook: '[Cameron] never told her why they broke up, she only found out when they started putting his ugly mug all through the magazines in prep for the show.' 

Another friend added: 'It was heartbreaking for a friend of mine who found out (he dumped her for MAFS) a fortnight before the show went to air.' 

On Thursday, Now To Love also made similar allegations that Cameron 'ended his relationship' in order to appear on the show.
