Married At First Sight fans have expressed shock that controversial contestant Nikita was brought back for the Christmas reunion, with some viewers switching off over her behaviour.

Nikita was featured in the 2021 series of the E4 dating show, where she had a number of heated rows with partner Ant, and was eventually booted from the series during the first dinner party where she had a particularly explosive argument with the rest of the cast.

However, it wasn't the last Nikita saw of the MAFS dinner parties as she made a return for E4's Christmas special on Sunday night, alongside stars of the 2022 series and a handful of singles from her own series.

She made her way to the centre of controversy by backing 2022 series star Jordan, who she appears to have become friends with, in an awkward moment with his ex Chanita.

Viewers were unimpressed at her comeback, with one tweeting: "Nikita was kicked off, she didn’t leave. Bringing her back for drama is unnecessary."

Someone else commented: "Don’t get why Nikita was there last night after she was previously removed for her vile behaviour."

Another person wrote: "So Nikita was brought in just to bring a horrible and toxic atmosphere amongst the group.."

Other viewers even said the move had them switching off.

One person tweeted: "Well done on ruining the show by bringing Nikita in - switching off, she’s just loud and antagonistic."

Someone else wrote: "Now Nikita has gone in, I stopped watching! She’s a vile creature!"

Viewers also worried that a combination of Nikita and 2022 star Thomas, who was often at the centre of rows, was too much.

One person tweeted: "Why did they bring Nikita back when Thomas is enough."

Someone else wrote: "Can you imagine the carnage that would have occurred if Thomas and Nikita were in the same season!"

Another person added: "Imagine! Thomas had to calm Nikita down. THOMAS!"
