Married at First Sight RECAP – ‘Truth will come out’ between George & April as ‘there’s lots of skeletons’ claims Thomas

- Are the MAFS weddings legally binding?
- Do the MAFS contestants get paid?
- How many previous couples are still together?

THE ‘TRUTH’ between Married at First Sight’s George Roberts and April Banbury is set to be revealed, fellow contestant Thomas Hartley has hinted.

Adrian was forced to defend his husband Thomas following a clash between him and April over rumours he had gossiped about their cast mate Chanita Stephenson during the programme.

Adrian said: "You know what I've actually had something to say for weeks," before George ordered him to be quiet.

In response to a Q&A session on Instagram, where fans quizzed Thomas over Adrian’s hint, he replied: "I think, truth be told, I'm not going to speak on anyone else's behalf. He needs to speak for himself.

“But as you can see they were trying to shut him down but there's a lot of skeletons and he's clearly being shut down, he can't say anything about it. He doesn't want to out somebody else."

He added: "But give it time. As she always says, the truth always comes out."
