Married at First Sight star Gemma Rose took to Instagram to share her thoughts on the recent series.
We've all had our eyes fixed on the telly as our favourite reality show takes more unexpected turns than a learner driver.
It seems that it's not all fun and games, though, as Gemma Rose was quick to take to Instagram to comment on the editing of the show.
You can watch some of her stinging criticism of the show below:
For those not familiar, Gemma entered the show as one of the new couples - she married Matt and the pair quickly shook things up on the unconventional dating show.
On the show, fans saw Gemma making sex jokes, and while she says she may 'take [her] humour too far' that 'off camera [Matt] WAS THE SAME."
During an Instagram 'ask me anything,' Gemma hit back at the series claiming that during editing there were 'pauses that didn't exist and footage used in the wrong order'.
Gemma isn't a fan of how she was portrayed in the show and explained to fans: "I regret trusting the real truth being shown."
Gemma explained further the issues she had with her portrayal, adding: "Have we learnt anything from Love Island. False versions of serious situations and changing the storyline so dramatically... RUINS LIVES."
In an episode of the show that aired Tuesday (20 September), Gemma could be seen tearing up as she confronted Matt over dinner.
Surrounded by the other couples, Gemma said 'you don't fancy me' but Matt argued that he'd just asked for space.
Since then the couple has had a few more heated exchanges with media outlets suggesting that their disagreements were down to Gemma's sexual innuendoes and forwardness.
However, Gemma said that Matt made the same jokes, claiming on her Instagram story: "Right let's clear this up for the people in the back. My husband made the same jokes. I will share what they were.
"You're starting to see he makes innuendos. This portrayal that it was one-sided is ABSURD. OPEN YOUR EYES."
A Channel 4 spokesperson said: "Married at First Sight UK episodes are carefully put together so that, while we cannot show every moment of scenes that can take hours to film, we ensure that what we do broadcast is a fair and accurate reflection of the events that unfolded.”
