[ad_1]

Leaked text messages have emerged that cast doubt on the ‘butt-dial scandal’ that rocked Married At First Sight this week.

The damning screenshots, obtained by Daily Mail Australia, appear to prove the whole storyline was staged by the show’s producers.

In the texts, Rupert Bugden admits the phone call his ‘wife’ Evelyn Ellis supposedly overheard when he pocket-dialed her on a boys’ night out never actually happened.

The accidental ‘butt-dial’ was a major talking point on Tuesday’s episode with Evelyn claiming she heard Dan Hunjas and Hugo Armstrong trash-talking their wives.

Dan, 42, had allegedly told the other grooms his wife Sandy Jawanda wasn’t his type and also bragged about his previous conquests.

But the entire scandal has been exposed as a sham, if the texts are to be believed.

After being confronted by Evelyn about the phone call she’d supposedly overheard, Dan texted her husband Rupert on October 16 in an attempt to clear his name.

‘Hey mate, there’s something that’s been on my mind and it’s been burning at me. That butt-dial didn’t happen, we both know it didn’t,’ Dan wrote.

‘The conversation I had with you was during daylight and was between 4:30pm and 5:30pm. Not after 8pm like it was accused… We weren’t even together then.’

Dan then explained how he, Hugo and Rupert had been in a ‘very loud place’ at the time of the alleged ‘butt-dial’, so a mobile phone in Rupert’s pocket wouldn’t have been able to pick up their conversation.

He even went back to the venue and ‘tested an actual phone call with the phone at the table’ and discovered ‘you cannot hear any conversations at all’.

‘What’s the actual truth?’ he then texted Rupert, before asking him to be ‘real with him’ because ‘it’s not fair’.

Rupert claimed he was so ‘smoked’ on the night in question he could barely remember anything.

When confronted by Evelyn about what was allegedly said on the boys' night, Rupert (pictured) told her Dan had said he 'used to smash some good sorts back in the day' - a remark that prompted her to tell Sandy about the phone call. Rupert later told Dan via text he 'wasn't thinking' when he admitted this to Evelyn

‘At first when Evelyn told me there were these butt-dials I didn’t think it was even a thing… [Evelyn] showed me her texting me saying she heard everything Hugo had said,’ he explained.

Rupert later told Dan via text he ‘wasn’t thinking’ when he admitted this to Evelyn.

While these texts seemingly confirm Dan wasn’t dissing his wife in the ‘butt-dial’ call, another cast member who was at Opera Bar during the boys’ night out has claimed the conversation did take place – but Dan wasn’t there at the time.

A source claimed to Daily Mail Australia ‘the whole pocket-dial thing’ was in fact Hugo calling his wife Tayla Winter ‘a nightmare and a frigid c**t’.

The insider added: ‘Yes, some other guys said stuff about their wives, but it’s a stretch to make it all about Dan when he wasn’t even there [at the time].’

On Tuesday’s episode of MAFS, Evelyn pulled Sandy aside to let her know her husband Rupert had called her by accident and she overhead him and other grooms – including Dan – trash-talking their wives.

‘I’m about to tell you something that I think you would want to know,’ she began.

‘Over the weekend some of the husbands went out for a drink. Rupert butt-dialed me, he pocket-dialed me.

‘I could hear the conversations between some of the boys, very clearly, and they weren’t saying very nice things about their wives – particularly Dan.’

It comes after Evelyn pulled Sandy aside to let her know her what she overhead Dan and other grooms trash-talking their wives.

‘I could hear the conversations between some of the boys, very clearly, and they weren’t saying very nice things about their wives – particularly Dan.’

A surprised Sandy replied, ‘Dan said he was with his daughter,’ to which Evelyn responded firmly: ‘Dan was out with the boys.’

‘What was he saying?’ Sandy asked.

‘He was insinuating that he is too good for this experiment and too good for you,’ Evelyn said.

Evelyn said, 'Over the weekend some of the husbands went out for a drink. Rupert butt-dialed me, he pocket-dialed me. I could hear the conversations between some of the boys, very clearly, and they weren't saying very nice things about their wives - particularly Dan'

Evelyn explained she had later confronted her husband Rupert about it, who told her Dan was ‘showing all the boys photos of his ex girlfriends, boasting about how hot [they] were’.

A heartbroken Sandy admitted she was hurt Dan would do this to her just days after they had been intimate. 

She said that while she was upset by the news, she would rather be aware of what was being said behind her back than stay ignorant.

‘You deserve better than this,’ Evelyn assured her.

‘Thank you for telling me this, because I thought I was going crazy,’ Sandy replied, before saying she was sick of the way Dan had been treating her lately.
