From wife-swapping to fist fights to never-ending conversations about Georges' squatting antics, it's safe to say this season of Married at First Sight UK has been a bit of a mad one.
And what followed was complete utter carnage, with cheating, arguments — Tasha calling Erica a 'tramp' because she didn't give her a hug is still wild to me — and contestants quitting left, right and centre.
Now, it's been revealed that only three of the twelve couples set up by expert matchmakers have survived the chaos.
Five months after the filming of the show's eighth season concluded in May, nine couples have ended their marriages and at least three contestants have moved on with new partners.
An unnamed source told the MailOnline: "Only three couples are still together after filming for the series ended in May.
"Considering they committed to each other for the rest of their lives, it's not great and what's more is a few of the show's stars have even moved on in new relationships.
"Some of the contestants that are still working on their marriages feel that other contributors didn't take the experiment as seriously as they could have, and fame definitely played a part in the decisions made."

Obviously, Brad and Shona are no longer together after his gaslighting and manipulative behaviour resulted in the couple being asked to leave the show.
Both now appear to have moved on, with Brad now being in a relationship with new girlfriend Hollie Baldwin and Shona reportedly dating MAFS co-star Matt, who was previously paired up with Adrienne.
Granted the couple, who entered the experiment as latecomers alongside Mark and Sean, have broken up.
It has unfortunately also been confirmed that Arthur and Laura's marriage also ends in heartbreak, after the groom was seen snogging another woman last week while he celebrated his 35th birthday.
And both viewers and cast members were left in shock following the return of Ella - the shows first ever transgender contestant - and JJ during Wednesday night's show.
The couple left the experiment in an earlier episode after Ella's affair with JJ was exposed, causing her husband Nathaniel to quit.
JJ had previously been coupled up with Bianca, who has also left the experiment.
But, the pair were allowed to reenter the dating experiment to explore their connection with each other, much to the annoyance of a number of their co-stars.
Nathaniel wrote the following on Instagram about the pairs return: "They definitely shouldn't have been allowed to return.
"FAKE production stories and if you guys actually knew the truth about a certain person's behaviour off camera, especially. What came out of my last dinner party, which you guys didn't get to see."
None of the other failed romances have been confirmed but, with a number of marriages currently hanging on by a thread, it's pretty much guaranteed that the drama will continue.
