If you’re a Married At First Sight Australia fan watching the show in the UK on E4, avoiding spoilers can feel like an Olympic sport at times.

The show airs in Australia a few weeks earlier than it does this side of the pond, so major storylines like Sara Mesa’s cheating scandal, the arrival of intruder couples like Jade Pywell and Ridge Barredo and which couples are still together (or not as the case may be) can sometimes be leaked.

We’d definitely stay away from the cast’s social media accounts if you don’t want the show to be spoiled before it finishes as their posts can sometimes give away what happens – and apparently MAFS producers aren’t happy about it.

According to reports, show bosses have reprimanded the MAFS Australia 2024 cast for “leaking storylines and breaching their contracts”, with Sara, Ben Walters and Eden Harper allegedly called out for TikToks which go against the show’s social media policy.

“Production has come down hard on the cast this year and are happy to make an example of people, reminding them they've all signed legally binding contracts which they're actively breaching,” and insider told Yahoo Lifestyle.

The source revealed that no cast members are at risk of legal action at the moment, but they have been “gently reminded” that producers would be within their rights to do so.

However, despite reportedly incurring their wrath with his social media posts, Ben told the publication he hadn’t heard anything from the show’s producers.

He said, “They haven’t helped me one bit with the edit I’ve received and have blocked any publicity to tell my side of the story and for that they can continue to 'reprimand' all they like.

“I feel it’s no different to a musician deciding to leave a label and be independent. I’ve gone a bit bananas on TikTok and they haven’t said a peep."

Earlier this month, Ben spoke out to claim producers had “left out” scenes which showed him finding out Ellie Dix had broken up with her boyfriend to appear on the show.

“The editing made her seem like a hero throughout, then shifted to a cold-hearted woman when it mattered the most. If they showed everything, viewers would have seen Ellie's faults from the start alongside mine,” he explained.
