Married At First Sight UK's Jordon Breaks Silence After Claims He 'Dumped Girlfriend To Be On Show'

Married At First Sight UK's Jordon Breaks Silence After Claims He 'Dumped Girlfriend To Be On Show'

Jordon has spoken out on the claims.

Married at First Sight UK's Jordon Mundell has spoken out over claims that he split with his girlfriend of 11 years just before joining the reality dating show.

According to reports, Jordon - who married Alexis Economou on the show - left his partner of over a decade to appear on MAFS.

But now, Jordon has cleared up the rumours. Writing on Instagram he said: "Hi everyone, there have been some claims about my relationship status that I would like to personally respond to.

"These claims are not true, I was very much single when I entered MAFS. I was previously in a relationship, which finished at the end of 2019 and the photographs that have been published are also from that time.

"I appreciate all your support and hope you enjoy the rest of the series."

The claims were made by Jordon's alleged ex-girlfriend and her friend on Twitter. "Imagine having a stunning Mrs of 11 years and disappearing to film a TV show to get 15 mins of fame," the friend wrote.

"Running back until it’s about to air saying mental health was the reason you disappeared. Jordon is an absolute clown.

"... My poor best friend is heartbroken, they were literally living together until she found out two weeks ago."

Meanwhile the ex said: "Imagine having a girlfriend the whole time and pretending to have left for 6 weeks due to 'mental health' and only just breaking up with them as soon as the programme is aired because they're that much of a scumbag".

So far in the show, Jordon has married Alexis, with the pair jetting off to the Maldives for their honeymoon.

Jordon admitted during their getaway that his usual type is 'blonde hair blue eyes' - a comment that didn't go down too well with Alexis.

The pair had a number of squabbles during the trip, with Alexis fuming when Jordon took her on a watersports activity, despite her reservations.

At the end of Tuesday evening's episode, as the pair were ready to leave their honeymoon and face the first group dinner party, Jordon said: "If wife swapping is available right now, count me in. I’ve got the green card as I’m not happy with what I’ve got."

Yikes.

And it looks like some swapping could be on the cards, after Alexis and Ant could be seen flirting in Wednesday's episode. Meanwhile, Megan - who is unhappily married to Bob - expressed an interest in Jordon. You can read more about that here.

Tyla reached out to Channel 4 for comment on the claims.
