MAFS UK Christmas reunion cast

FIVE of the MAFS UK cast haven’t been invited to return for the Christmas reunion special

At this rate it’s just going to be Adrian, Thomas and a turkey

Last week, we spilled that Married at First Sight UK would be giving us the best festive gift of all when it returns for its Christmas reunion special featuring cast members from the 2021 and 2022 series. But the cast members who are attending are dropping faster than my nan sinks the Yuletide egg nog – five MAFS UK cast members have now confirmed they won’t be at the Christmas reunion or weren’t invited in the first place.

Matt, Gemma, Whitney, April and George are all confirmed to not be there

Matt was already confirmed to not be there after he flew off to holiday with “just good friends” Marilyse from MAFS 2021. A representative for Gemma confirmed to Metro that she pulled out of filming the episode after being vocally unhappy with the way she was edited throughout the season.

Whitney has also not been asked to return. Despite sticking with Matt through the experiment after she left Duka and he left Gemma, the two split by the reunion last week and cited the distance as the reason for their split. Whitney also shared over the weekend that she regrets staying with Matt and that they do not speak and are no longer friends.

April Banbury and George Roberts will also not be there amongst the MAFS UK cast for the Christmas reunion. April has confirmed their split, following the news that George was arrested on suspicion of controlling and coercive behaviour after allegations from his three exes. He denies the accusations.

A source told The Sun: “Not every participant from the 2021 and 2022 series was asked. But considering what key characters both of them were during the most recent run, there was lots of chatter on set about them not being involved.”
