Bad news for Married at First Sight UK fans because it looks like one of the newly married couples – whose wedding only aired earlier this week – have already called it quits.

In fact, in suspiciously Love Island-esque news, it’s been reported that one of the grooms – Welsh Jordon Mundell – had been in a relationship for 11 years before he was cast on the show and has already returned to his ex.

Jordon was matched with model Alexis Economou but sparks weren’t exactly flying when they met for the first time at their wedding, with Alexis worried that Jordon was too quiet and reserved for her.

Well, it’s clear his heart wasn’t in it, as a friend of Jordon’s unnamed girlfriend took to social media with an explosive tweet which has now gone viral.

Along with a number of recent snaps of Jordon looking loved up with a petite brunette, the friend wrote, "For anyone wondering, this is my friend’s Insta… but he likes blondes though?"

She added, "Imagine having a stunning Mrs of 11 years and disappearing to film a tv show to get 15 mins of fame.

"Jordon is an absolute clown."

Married At First Sight UK set for 'sexed-up' return to rival Love Island

Already missing Married At First Sight Australia? Well, we have some AMAZING news 🙌🏽

It’s not the first controversy from the series, which has so far only aired six episodes, as shortly after its debut eagle-eyed viewers spotted that one of the brides, Morag Chrichton, has already attempted to find love on TV once before.

Morag spent seven weeks on the Paddy McGuinness-fronted dating show Take Me Out but unfortunately failed to bag a date to Fernandos. Speaking about her time on Take Me Out, Morag previously told the Plymouth Herald, "I didn’t get a date, and I’m not disappointed.

"There was nothing wrong with the men but I wouldn’t have gone out with them in real life. I had to be true to myself. Anyway, the only one I fancied was Paddy. He was the nicest guy, so good to all of us. A real gentleman."
