It turns out that Married At First Sight UK stars Nikita Jasmine and Ant Poole previously starred on the same show, and our minds are officially blown.
Viewers have been glued to their screens over the dramatic series, currently airing on E4, which sees singletons meet for the first time at the altar before vowing to spend the rest of their lives together.
Nikita and Ant were among the first to tie the knot but it hasn’t quite been wedded bliss, with the bride declaring that her new groom wasn’t her type.
However, it turns out that they have a previous connection, as they both popped up on Comedy Central series Your Face Or Mine.
MAFS sleuths uncovered Nikita’s TV past on social media, but have now unearthed Ant’s stint on the very same show – with both making an appearance in 2018 alongside their respective partners.
While they probably didn’t film the episodes on the same day, could you imagine if they accidentally bumped into each other in the hallway at one point, or locked eyes across the backstage canteen?
The couple haven’t quite got off to the best start on the dating show, and had some explosive rows on their less-than idyllic honeymoon.
Co-star Tayah has teased that there are even more fireworks to come from the pair in future episodes, and we’re not entirely sure we’re ready…
Nikita was recently forced to speak out over the reaction towards her episodes, vowing that scenes had been ‘edited’ for the TV show.
Calling out trolls who had sent her death threats over the series, she fumed on Instagram: ‘It’s funny because obviously the marriages aren’t real.
‘It’s classed as a social experiment and I think people forget that it is TV, so regardless of what you’re in it for, it’s still a TV show. Everybody knows what it involves, it’s cropped and edited for your entertainment.
‘If every single wedding went plain sailing and it was fine and dandy, there was no agg, it would be boring as a viewer to watch. Nobody would want to see that.
‘In a nutshell, it’s not that deep. So obviously when I’m getting messages giving us death threats, people saying they’re glad my ex-partner left us, things like I don’t deserve a cat, I’m a disgrace, I’m humiliating…’
She added: ‘If you’re clearly that sad and pathetic to sit behind a keyboard and slate a girl that you don’t even know, and you’ve literally just seen on an hour-and-a-half episode, what a f**king boring, sad life you must have because I couldn’t think of anything worse.’
Married At First Sight UK continues on Tuesday, at 9pm, on E4.
