Married At First Sight Australia Viewers Launch #FreeMick Movement Following Jess' Betrayal

If you've been glued to Married At First Sight Australia you've likely been left fuming this week, as Jessika decided to stay in her marriage to Mick Gould - for all the wrong reasons.

Following the dramatic events at the last dinner party - and the fact Jess decided to stick around despite Mick wanting to leave twice - fans have taken to Twitter with the #FreeMick movement, with many demanding Mick be allowed to depart the show based on Jess' lies and deceit.

If you need a recap, here's what went down. Although Jess and Mick seemed to be getting along great at first, it was clear something was missing from their marriage.

Although the pair were intimate, Jess started feeling unsure about her attraction to Mick, and - after he made some pretty vile comments about Jess' family and their behaviour at the couple's wedding - things took a turn for the worse.

Around the same time, newlyweds Dan and Tamara joined the show and at the first dinner party, it was clear Dan had caught Jess' attention, after she described him as "a meal not a snack".

The pair ended up having a secret kiss behind their spouses backs and, explaining to cameras that she wanted to get to know Dan more, Jess hatched a plan to stay in her marriage to Mick so she could spend more time with Dan - despite being no longer interested in her husband in the slightest.

And naturally, fans were not happy about it.

One person wrote on Twitter: "Omfg when who think Jess cannot stoop any lower... staying so she can hook up with someone else's husband! Disgusting... I'm sorry but this behaviour really boils my p****... #karmaisabitch #freemick."

While another added: "God, Mick is my fave #MarriedAtFirstSightAustralia #FreeMick."

Elsewhere a third commented: "Asking to leave two weeks running surely turns #MAFSAustralia into a hostage situation? #freemick."

The #FreeMick movement first came about in 2019 - when the show originally aired in Australia. Mick even posted about it himself on Instagram, posting a shot of him and Jess on the show and captioning the post: "#FreeMick".

He later shared another image on the sofa, with his head in his hands, captioned: "When the other men and women of the experiment have always been there to help you through it. Thanks for the opportunity. What a waste of three months #MAFS."

At the time, one viewer wrote online: "This is a hostage situation. Let the boy go. The fact they know she's looking to cheat and keeping him there against his will is horrid. I know they signed up to the 2 leaves to leave rule but cmon."

Meanwhile, another said: "#freemick is the most important hashtag on the internet now #mafs."

Poor Mick! Married At First Sight Australia Season 6 continues tonight in the UK, on E4 at 7.30pm. We can't wait to see what goes down...
