New series of MAFS Australia has viewers 'gripped' as expert 'repulsed' by behaviour of contestant

New series of MAFS Australia has viewers 'gripped' as expert 'repulsed' by behaviour of contestant

The latest series kicked off in the UK with a bang last night

Reality TV fans have been left on the edge of their seats following last night's premiere of the brand new drama-fuelled series of Married At First Sight Australia.

Following a plot-twist filled, name-throwing finale of the last UK series, dating show fans have been DESPERATE to see a fresh batch of singletons walking down the aisle to meet their 'perfect match'.

And thankfully, their prayers were answered, after Channel 4 launched a new instalment filmed Down Under.

Last night (26 February), we saw a handful of blubbering brides and nervous grooms come face-to-face in the ultimate dating experiment.

But it wasn't the tear-jerking vow exchanges or lustful looks that set viewers' tongues wagging within minutes of the show airing - it was the preview teaser of what's to come.

The eyebrow-raising clip - which aired at the very beginning of the show, to give fans a glimpse of what they can expect - included intimate nuptials, loved-up honeymoons and lots of confrontation.

But it wasn't just fans of the show that were left picking their jaws up off the floor, as the clip saw MAFS dating expert John Aiken absolutely horrified by the behaviour of one contestant, though it is not yet clear who it was.

"I've seen things in these experiments that have repulsed me," he can be heard telling those involved in the explosive spat. "That is right up there."

The show's fellow relationship gurus Mel Schilling - who last year opened up about her recent colon cancer diagnosis - and Alessandra Rampolla were also seen in agreement that the person involved should be given the chop the show.

And naturally, viewers were stunned.

"We’re 60 seconds in and #marriedatfirstsight already got me gripped! Buckle up folks, this season looks JUICY!!" one penned on X.

Another wrote: "Ready for the kick off!! What a preview!!!"

Someone else commented: "Now I know it’s edited highlights but it’s looking good, Good, GOOD!"

The show appears to be filled with drama.

This isn't the first time that a contestant has been removed from the cast, however.

On last year's UK series, Luke Worley squared up to fellow groom Jordon Gayle during one of the jaw-dropping dinner parties, triggering his elimination from the line-up.

On the same series, husband and wife Brad Skelly and Shona Manderson were kicked off the show following a series of 'toxic rows'.

Married at First Sight Australia continues tonight at 7:30pm on E4 and streaming on Channel 4.
