Married At First Sight UK has had us all gripped as newlywed strangers navigate their way through married life – with lots of drama along the way.
And one contestant who has caused quite a stir is bride Whitney Hughes, who has even been branded the “worst bride ever” on social media.
Now, dating expert Paul C Brunson has given his take on Whitney, who is paired with Duka Cav, and criticised her "unkind" opinions.
The 48 year old told OK!: “There is a way of giving an opinion without being unkind. We end up discussing what kindness means on the show.
"There’s an episode where I make thoughts [on Whitney] clear, so how I feel might be evident.”
Legal personal assistant Whitney and her new husband Duka, both 31, met for the first time at the alter and Whitney's reaction was less than enthusiastic, leaving viewers appalled by her "disrespectful" behaviour towards Duka, and many fans threatening to call Ofcom over scenes.
It comes after Whitney was forced to defend herself on social media after being branded "rude" in "vile messages" on social media.
She took to Instagram to post a statement addressing her behaviour on the show, but called out the abusive messages she’s been sent online.
She also teased in the statement that "a lot more will unfold" over the coming episodes and thanked those who have reached out with messages of support.
She wrote: "I’ve always been in two minds about whether or not I should speak up about what I’m experiencing but that has put me in an uncomfortable position in the past."
She added: "Equally, it is impossible to explain my side of things without bringing down others and that is not what I want to do. We’re only two weeks in, a lot more will unfold in the next few weeks."
She concluded: "One of the many things this experience has taught me is patience but whether or not you change your opinion on me, it's never going to be OK to personally send me or others vile messages/comments.
"I can't imagine doing effects your life in a positive way, that energy could be used to show love to anyone. Putting that aside, I would like to say a massive thank you to the people reaching out to show support. It honestly means so much."
