Married At First Sight UK was full of drama on Wednesday night for the commitment ceremony as Matt Murray and Whitney Hughes asked to stay in the experiment as a new couple.
Only recently, Matt and Whitney pursued a romance despite being partnered with other people as they shared the news to their fellow cast members with explosive results.
During Wednesday's episode, Matt and wife Gemma Rose, as well as Whitney and husband Duka Cav, had to decide whether to stay or leave the experiment.
And it came as no surprise that all four chose to leave following the explosive dinner party on Tuesday, where Matt and Whitney revealed they were going to explore their connection.
However, things took another dramatic turn when Matt and Whitney asked the experts – Mel Schilling, Paul C Brunson and Charlene Douglas – if they can remain in the experiment but as a new couple.
After choosing to leave, Matt added: "It would be nice to get the experiment with Whitney and see how that can develop. I'd be absolutely frickin' insane and stupid not to pursue it.'
With Mel clarifying: "So, to be clear, are the two of you saying that you're wanting to pursue this relationship here inside the experiment?"
To which they both said yes with Whitney adding: "Matt and I are like fresh, if we could have the help of the experts and find out whether this is something that we should put our lives and our time and our hearts into, that would be amazing."
With Mel pointing out: "This is a really complex situation and it's one that we don't take lightly, at all, in fact we need further discussion. We need time to reflect on what is right for you two as a couple, the rest of the group and the process."
It remains to be seen whether they will remain in the experiment with the results set to be aired on Thursday and fans were quick to share their opinions.
One person tweeted: "What is this a love island recoupling??? LOOOL #MAFSUK.'
A different account put: "Nahhh… Whitney and Matt have got a DARN CHEEK!!! And they DO NOT deserve to stay as a couple… This isn't wife swap! #MAFS #MAFSUK #MarriedAtFirstSight #MarriedAtFirstSightUK."
