She also claimed Cam had made inappropriate jokes about inviting Tayla to share the night with them both.

Defending himself, Cam said: "What happens after the final vows should not concern anyone.

"I have moved on from this experiment. I was never in a relationship, I was in an experiment… If you wanted a fairytale ending, get a job at Disneyland."

Cam said: "I wouldn't say I'm not ready for a relationship, I just think I'm not going down that path of falling in love,” causing Lyndall to leave the room upset.

Things went from bad to worse at their final vows, when Lyndall told Cameron exactly what she thought.

"Unfortunately, at one point or another, the man I met at our wedding started fading away,” she said.

Lyndall added: "I thought that because I have cystic fibrosis, I could never be someone's forever person. I've waited almost all my life to finally be able to offer my unwavering commitment to someone.”

She finished: "I want to build a life I'm proud of and that life does not include you."

When Cameron went to read his vows, she stopped him and said: "I just feel like no matter what you say today, it's only going to disappoint me again. I think I'm just done."
