Married at First Sight UK stars Jordan Emmett Connelly and Chanita Stephenson have revealed they’re ‘rekindling’ their romance, even though he dumped her over FaceTime.
Chanita and Jordan stunned viewers during the reunion episode last night, when they walked into the dinner party alone, sharing they were no longer together.
The couple had been one of the strongest this series, with all of us voting in their favour, including their fellow contestants and the experts.
However, things hadn’t worked out the way they wanted to, and Chanita broke down in tears during the final reunion episode in which they revealed things hadn’t worked out.
Not long later though, the pair teased that they’re working on their relationship again during an appearance on Unveiled.
‘When we came out of the experiment, Jordan’s efforts changed significantly,’ Chanita began to host AJ Odudu.
‘I could just see that his heart wasn’t in it, and then he finished with me over FaceTimed, and then I knew,’ she continued.
‘I want somebody that values me for me and wants to fight for me, and thinks I’m great!’
Meanwhile, expert Paul C Brunson that he has ‘not given up hope’ yet, adding that he knows ‘how great they could be together.’
And it seemed he wasn’t the only one.
When Jordan was called on FaceTime in front of the live studio audience, he shared: ‘Sometimes I don’t think things through properly.’
When Judi Love probed about whether he wants her back, Jordan replied: ‘That’s what we’re doing now, we speak everyday, we FaceTime everyday.’
‘Stay on that path,’ Paul urged.
‘You’re speaking to Chanita everyday in the hope that you can rekindle what you have on Married At First Sight?’ AJ asked, to which Jordan replied: ‘That’s what we’re hoping to do!’
Only time will tell whether things will work out…
During last week’s edition, Jordan and Chanita had opened up in their final vows and admitted they ‘cared deeply’ about each other.
‘I love who you are and everything you stand for, and I am so excited to see what the future has in store for us,’ she told him.
‘I can’t wait to make plans as a couple and do everything I’ve never done with you. You’re my husband and my naughty partner in crime.’
