Dr., a former relationship expert on the reality show Married at First Sight. Trisha Stratford passed away at the age of 72.
Relationship expert John Aiken , who appeared on MAFS alongside Stratford, announced the news via social media on Monday.
“I am heartbroken and devastated by the passing of my friend and beloved colleague Trisha,” she wrote on Instagram.“ We shared 7 amazing seasons of MAFS together. He loved all things New Zealand, relationships, the All Blacks, Black Caps, French wine and traveling the world. I’ll miss you Tish. Thank you for all the memories.” He did not disclose the circumstances of his death.
Stratford, a clinical neuropsychologist specializing in the neuroscience of relationships, appeared on the Australian version of the hit wedding show known for dramatic dinner parties and scandalous events for seven seasons before announcing her departure in 2020.
“I have decided to withdraw from the television series to focus on my writing, research and neuropsychotherapy” he said in a statement at the time.
But she told Women’s Day New Zealand in 2021 that part of the reason she left was because producers didn’t heed her advice about the psychological state of some participants before they started filming.
