Married At First Sight EXCLUSIVE: A smiling Liam Cooper is seen for the first time since THAT video leaked – celebrating his 30th birthday without his ‘wife’ Georgia Fairweather

A week has passed since a leaked video surfaced of three Married At First Sight cast members mocking Liam Cooper and even questioning his sexuality.

But the prison officer seemed unconcerned on Sunday as he celebrated his 30th birthday at Canberra hotspot Kokomo’s with fellow players Booka Nile and Samantha Harvey.

The trio arrived at the upscale restaurant in a white, sprawling Hummer, but Liam’s ‘wife’ Georgia Fairweather – who was one of the people involved in the viral video picking up the trash – was noticeably absent.

Liam, looking slimmer than ever in a white shirt and ripped jeans, felt the love as he hugged his friends upon his arrival.

Heavy metal musician Booka, 31, opted for retro chic in denim overalls, white ankle boots and matching sunglasses.

She was joined by Madlin Sims, who was her bridesmaid on the show.

Samantha, 31, dressed in a Grease-inspired sneaky black number, let go of her hair as she opened a bottle of champagne and showed off her dance moves.

At one point, Booka decided to treat the birthday boy to a live performance of her song ‘Patrick’, about her screen clash with Patrick Dwyer.

As the group left the venue, Samantha showed her playful side by hopping on a scooter while her fellow stars watched.

The sighting comes a week after footage surfaced of Liam’s co-star Jason Engler, 35, using a homophobic slur on him, while his ‘wife’ Georgia laughed in the background.

In the Daily Mail Australia two-minute video, Jason called Liam a ‘full-fledged homosexual’ – although he has made it clear that he is attracted to both women and men – and made fun of him for ‘not going to the gym’ .

The video was filmed and uploaded to Georgia’s Instagram account in November when she, Jason and fellow MAFS contestant Johnny Balbuziente caught up with Brisbane.

A source close to Liam told Daily Mail Australia at the time that he felt ‘absolutely betrayed and heartbroken’ after viewing the footage.

Liam is said to have kept quiet about the video until he reunited with his castmates at the Married At First Sight reunion in February.

Where is Georgia?  The fact that his televised bride was noticeably missing from his birthday celebrations could indicate that the couple are no longer speaking after the video leaked.
