Married At First Sight UK stars Erica Roberts and Jordan Gayle slam co-star couple’s romance as ‘fake’ and reveal they have ‘agreement to only see each other once a week’

Date:

Married At First Sight UK couple Erica Roberts and Jordan Gayle have opened up on their time on the reality TV show and slammed several of their castmates as fake.

The dance teacher, 25, and the personal trainer, 26, were matched on the E4 show and had a turbulent journey following their later entrance but stayed together and are still going strong.

However, in a new interview the couple stated that other couples in the show ‘manufactured’ their relationships with one even continuing to ‘fake’ their romance. 

Speaking to The Sun, Jordan said: ‘It was really frustrating watching it back, because viewers couldn’t even tell who the fake couples were – and they would even admit themselves that they weren’t a real couple.’

The pair then revealed that they doubt married couple Peggy Rose and Georges Bert – who claim to still be together – are genuine and have made an ‘agreement’ to see each other.

Jordan explained: ‘I just don’t believe Peggy and Georges as a couple. I didn’t believe in them at the time, and I know I said earlier about the editing not always being what it seems but, in Peggy and Georges’ case, it did seem accurate.

‘Most people watching didn’t really understand them. I don’t understand how, as a couple, they always had a million problems, a million different problems, new problems every week, yet they were still happy enough to stay with each other.

‘Surely, if you have that many problems as a couple, you wouldn’t be happy? But the reason why I feel like they could get through it, and be happy, is because they didn’t really care, so it’s not really a problem.’

As Erica chimed in to say the relationship was ‘manufactured’, Jordan continued: ‘I thought it was manufactured drama to get more airtime, and they probably had the most air time out of everyone.

‘But I just feel like if you really care about someone, and you’re really into them, any small problem eats away at you. I just don’t believe in it whatsoever.

‘We’ll see soon with couples; will they still be together in like a year’s time? I’ll be absolutely shocked if they are – unless they’re getting success together as a couple.’

Erica then added: ‘They only see each other once a week. They have an agreement that they see each other once a week.’

They also blasted Laura Vaughan, who was matched with Arthur Poremba, saying she had only been on the show to get fame.

Jordan said: ‘Laura was basically on MAFS for an audition for Made in Chelsea. That’s the only reason she was there, and I think everyone can see through that.’

Erica added: ‘She can’t be on Made in Chelsea when she’s from Portsmouth and she’s never lived in London.’

The couple also criticised the way that had come off in the final edit of the show, saying it was not an ‘accurate representation’ and that they were set up to fail by the producers.

Erica claimed that the couples were asked to voice their opinions, but it was only hers and Jordans that were aired.

One shocking moment on the show saw Jordan become embroiled in a fight with Luke Worley after the latter banged on his front door and started swung at him – while Erica watched on.

Luke, 30, who was matched with his now-ex Jay Howard, was ejected from the show following the physical confrontation with Jordan, who has spoken about his past trauma with domestic violence.

Jordan admitted that he felt like the producers had stirred the pot between the two co-stars, and said that while ‘no one forced Luke to do what he did’, they were always encouraging the drama and pushing the pair towards a ‘narrative’.

Speaking to MailOnline last week, Erica addressed the shocking scenes, explaining how it was ‘awful’ to go through and said they never expected Luke to turn up at their door and start a fight, after weeks of tension between him and Jordan.

She said: ‘At the time that was awful, it was horrible dealing with that, I think coming on a show like MAFS, you never expect something like that to happen – on any show to be honest or even just in normal life you wouldn’t expect someone to come banging on your door and trying to fight you! 

‘So that was really shocking for both of us, but the fact that we had each other in that moment, I would say that was one of the hardest parts as a couple for us, but the fact that we had each other made it so much better.’

Erica also revealed that the TV edit meant that viewers weren’t able to fully see what had happened and said Jordan hadn’t felt able to ‘defend’ himself in the scenes.

‘The situation that happened on the show, the TV edit doesn’t get to really show what fully happened, but again, in that moment, Jordan felt like he wasn’t able to defend himself because of being on the show,’ she said.

Erica also shared how she ‘struggled’ watching some of the show back because of missing ‘context’ due to the time restraints of each episode, meaning every conversation is not shown on screen.

She went on: ‘I would say quite a few things weren’t said more than anything, like I just think there’s a lot of context that gets missed out with things in certain situations. 

‘There’s obviously a lot more than goes on than what the viewer gets to see. That’s one of the most difficult things I struggled with watching it back because I was like “yes, but there’s so much context missing” and it can give people the wrong idea, but that’s just TV.’  

Erica and Jordan have overcome their trials on the show and are still together now, and she insisted they have gone from ‘strength-to-strength’ and are enjoying being a normal couple off-screen and plan to move to Manchester together.

Jordan admitted that he felt like the producers had stirred the pot between the two co-stars, and said that while 'no one forced Luke to do what he did', they were always encouraging the drama and pushing the pair towards a 'narrative'
