Married At First Sight UK star Jordon Mundell has spoken out to address claims he was still in a relationship while filming the show.
The 26-year-old personal trainer was matched up with Alexis Economou by dating experts Mel Schilling, Paul C Brunson and Charlene Douglas, but it hasn’t been plain sailing for them since they walked down the aisle, with Jordon admitting he wasn’t attracted to Alexis during their honeymoon.
Things then took another twist earlier this week when it was reported that Jordon and Alexis had already split as he had reunited with his ex.
A social media user, who claims to be a friend of Jordon’s on/off girlfriend, shared a number of snaps of Jordon looking loved up with a petite brunette and 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."
However, following his exit from the experiment, Jordon took to social media to break his silence as he insisted he was single before appearing on the show.

Sam and Elizabeth might not have lasted, as Sam seemed far more interested in Ines. But Lizzie was the true winner - she was so popular with viewers she appeared on the next series of the show, finding love with Seb Guilhaus. But, sadly, they split earlier this month after a year together.
Jordon wrote, “Hi everyone, there have been some claims about my relationship status that I would like to personally respond to. These claims are not true, I was very much single when I entered MAFS.
“I was previously in a relationship, which finished at the end of 2019 and the photographs that have been published are also from that time.”
He added, “I was previously in a relationship, which finished at the end of 2019 and the photographs that have been published are also from that time.”
In last night’s episode of Married At First Sight, Jordon and Alexis quit the process following the breakdown of their relationship.

They weren’t the only couple to leave either as Nikita was axed following an explosive dinner party row with Jordon, which meant her husband Ant Poole had to leave the experiment by default.
It’s claimed that Nikita launched into a foul-mouthed rant at her co-stars and had to be dragged away by security.
A Married At First Sight spokesperson confirmed that Nikita had been removed from the show in a statement earlier this week. They said, “The wellbeing of cast and crew is our utmost priority at all times throughout production and beyond.
“During filming, a situation escalated off camera and Nikita displayed a level of aggression that was unacceptable and breached our agreed code of conduct on behaviour. As a result, she was asked to leave the experiment. All involved have been offered support and Nikita has since apologised and resolved the situation with those involved."
