Married At First Sight UK viewers have witnessed a ton of drama so far but the E4 show has reminded fans to remember those appearing are ‘real people.’
The series hasn’t been short of chaos since it kicked off on the broadcaster earlier this month.
Four of the participants have had to leave after their commitments to each other broke down early on.
Nikita Jasmine was axed from the show, with her husband Ant Poole also leaving. Meanwhile, Jordon <undell and Alexis Economou left after their relationship fell flat.
E4’s Twitter account put out a message to avid viewers, reminding them to ‘be kind’ to those who are taking part in the process, which sees participants enter into commitment ceremonies with people they have never met before.
They captioned the post: ‘With [love heart emoji] from the #MAFSUK team xo,’ after a particularly fiery couple of episodes.
The graphic attached read: ‘Thank you, to everyone, remember our brides and grooms are real people, with friends and family, who are reading all your comments.
‘We know this show can sometimes spark debate, but let’s all remember to #BeKind. Thanks again. MAFSUK Team x.’
Nikita’s departure came after producers removed her from the E4 show for ‘unacceptable’ behaviour following a situation that ‘escalated off camera’, with the reality star exploding at Jordon at the reunion dinner.
Ant, by default, had to also leave the process after his partner had to leave the programme.
Meanwhile, Jordon and Alexis also chose to leave the experiment after their relationship collapsed following their wedding day as a result of flirtations elsewhere from the groom.
It comes after Nikita spoke out on how she felt about her exit, telling The Sun: ‘I am truly gutted to have left the show. I loved every minute of the experience but it was a rollercoaster of emotions, and sometimes they got the better of me.
‘But that’s me as a person and I am truly sorry for any upset I caused during my time in the experiment. However, I will always stand up for what I believe in. I can be loud and lairy, I’ll admit that, but I try to be a good person and have others’ backs.
‘This can confuse people occasionally. But I do think I am misunderstood.’
Married At First Sight UK airs on E4.
