Married At First Sight stars have left touching tributes after a groom who appeared on the show has died at the age of 33.

Builder Andrew Jury was one of the original stars of the New Zealand series which aired back in 2017. His co-stars Brett and Angel Renall and Benjamin Blackwell today announced his shock death in a joint Instagram post, reports the Mirror.

They shared: "We had the absolute pleasure of filming and participating in a show which leaves us intricately linked for a lifetime.

"Despite his struggles, Andrew was always friendly and the life of the party during our shared experience and he really valued his time on the show. At this time our entire cast wish to send our deepest condolences and love to his family - Ben, Angel, Brett, Vicky, Haydn, Lacey, Claire, Dom, Aaron, Luke, Belinda."

Andrew, who described himself on the show as both outgoing and charming, was matched with Vicky Gleeson-Stokes. The pair stayed together until the final of the show but sadly split up with one and other after the series ended.

One year later, Andrew questioned the ethics of the show and whether the experts were really matching people for love. He said he and wife Vicky were total opposites and she was in fact not the kind of partner he had asked for. He also hit out at the filming conditions on the show.

The makers of MAFS New Zealand, Warner Bros Discovery, expressed their 'deepest condolences' to Andrew's loved ones following the news. In a statement they said : "WBD takes duty of care extremely seriously and has protocols in place regarding the wellbeing of cast and crew. All MAFS NZ contributors have access to mental health professionals throughout the process, including pre-screening, during production and after broadcast."
