What did you miss?

Married at First Sight UK is back and the reality series has seen its first big fallout after Nathaniel Valentino and Ella Morgan had a blazing row on last night's episode.

After arriving at their honeymoon in Mexico, the couple grew antagonistic over alleged past secrets with Nathaniel refusing to show intimacy.

Nathaniel then revealed that Ella used to work as a stripper which she defended and said it wasn't something she was "ashamed of".


What, how, and why?

The pair had begun the day cave-diving before problems grew out of Ella's concern that Nathaniel was not romantically interested in her as she noted they were more akin to friends than lovers.

Their bickering eventually led to Ella storming off with Nathaniel questioning why he signed up for the show in the first place.

The next day they went to the beach and they started arguing again with Ella eventually calling Nathaniel a "p****".

They then started rowing about honesty with Nathaniel blurting out: "You've lied because you're a stripper," before storming off.

Ella then opened up to the camera and said: "I told him I've stripped in the past, it's not something I'm ashamed of. But I am worried that's the reason he's not being intimate.

"There's nothing I can do."

In the aftermath of the row, the couple kept their distance with Ella eventually inviting Nathaniel to a meal on the final night of their honeymoon but he stood her up.


What else happened on Married at First Sight UK?

It wasn't just Nathaniel and Ella who were experiencing relationship difficulties as Laura and Arthur were struggling to get on the same page.

Laura claimed that Arthur was holding too much of himself back and also questioned his vows which he had taken over the internet.

In a move to smooth things over, Arthur rewrote his vows and pledged his commitment to her.

Things were going better for Luke and amputee Jay who were enjoying their honeymoon on a Grenada beach.
