Married At First Sight’s Tracey Jewel is still attempting to leverage her time on the show by launching a self help book, but it appears not too many people were keen to help her promote the book.

Reports were mixed as to how many people actually turned up to the event, Tracey later claimed the actual number was 55 people, not 15 as claimed elsewhere.

But to make things worse, Today Extra host Sonia Kruger, who was advertised to appear, not only didn’t show but failed to respond to any of Tracey’s desperate messages, even though the texts were getting through and appearing as ‘read’ on her phone.

According to News Corp, Tracey said, ‘She messaged me two days ago saying she was coming!’

Addressing the crowd it’s claimed Jewel continued, ‘I messaged her, like, half an hour ago!’


‘Ugh, nothing throws you into the depths of despair like being left on “read”’

A Nine spokesperson said Sonia never received a formal invite, nor had she seen or approved of the press release advertising her appearance.

Jewel later posted:

“Thanks for everyone who attended and supported my Sydney book launch last night!


Just wanted to clear up some misinformation… there were 55 amazing guests in attendance at my Sydney book launch (not 12 lols).

Sonia Kruger was invited as a friend and as a guest but never in an official capacity or to MC my launch (my amazing business coach Sam did a Stella job!)

Sonia has been a massive support to me through the show and apologies for any misunderstandings out there! #fakenews”
