“Yes, I am currently single… and am I ready to mingle? I think so, yes. Why not. Let’s say that!’ she told the publication.

When asked if having a public profile made dating more difficult, Melissa admitted that she wasn’t sure, but was probably single because she was busy with her job.

Anyway, she says that for her next romance, all she’s looking for is a mutual connection.

In December 2020, Melissa announced that she was splitting up from her former husband Joe.

“It’s brought us so much happiness to walk together, but it’s time for Joe and I to break up and walk separately,” she said at the time.

“We ask for your kindness and consideration for our privacy, we will not comment further as our private lives have, and always will be.”

“We wish you peace at the end of such a challenging year for everyone.”

In June 2020, Melissa revealed that she married the tattooed bar owner in February 2017, after dating for just five months, because ‘when you know, you know’.

“I first met him briefly at his Melbourne bar, Romeo Lane,” Melissa told TV Week at the time.

“It has brought us so much happiness to walk together, but the time has come for Joe and I to break up and walk separately,” she said at the time.

‘Then we met again about a year and a half later at a position. We started talking there and we’ve never really stopped since. It’s pretty cool.’

The couple dated for just three months when they decided to get engaged. They then left after Melissa filmed SBS’s The Chef’s Line just two months later.

“After that was done, we went to Joshua Tree in California and ran away. It was all a lot of fun,” said the foodie-turned-TV judge.
