Married At First Sight contestant Franky Spencer has spoken out about how viewers do not see everything that happens on the show.

He said that he feels viewers haven't seen "the real me", using Instagram to address fans' concerns about his behaviour on the show.

"I'm inundated with messages, WhatsApps, Insta DMs, and Facebook DMs," said Franky (via OK!). "Everyone's saying, 'What the hell's going on? what the hell's going on?'"

"I am not the guy who edits all the footage. I just don't know what's going on. It is what it is, you know. I'm thick-skinned."

Franky is married to Marilyse, and the couple have had issues over the course of the series. They argued during a 'Yes Week' challenge after Marilyse told him to wear an apron, leading him to tell her to "f*** off".

In a recent episode, things got heated after Marilyse slept in a different room to Franky. She said, "He got a bit upset, and he didn't drop it. And before it got any more heated, I removed myself and went and stayed in a different room."

Fans have encouraged Marilyse to dump her husband.

But Franky said that "during the experiment, there were a lot of amazing positives that went on between Marilyse and [himself]", and that those experiences have not yet been shown.

He said, "I'm not allowed to tell you where we're at right now, and if we got through the experiment, but fun time Franky is obviously not being shown."

Franky added that he hoped viewers will eventually be able to see who he really is, rather than what has already been shown on the show, continuing: "Bear with it.

"Maybe we get to see a Franky where he's not goofy and negative and see the real me, I just don't know."

Married At First Sight UK airs Monday to Thursdays on E4.
