Two of the contestants are said to have come to blows after the couples’ retreat
Married At First Sight UK star has lost another cast member.
Luke Worley has reportedly been removed from the series – which, as the name suggests pairs singles that have to marry at first sight – following an altercation with one of his co-stars. The controversy comes after fellow contestant Brad Skelly was removed over concerns about his “controlling and coercive” behaviour.
According to reports, Channel 4 bosses axed the Essex salesman with “immediate effect after he shocked both cast and crew with his aggressive behaviour”. TV chiefs are said to have no choice but to eject the 30-year-old – who was matched with Jay Howard – from the E4 series due to their zero-tolerance policy against violence.
It has been alleged that Worley punched MAFS co-star Jordan Gayle following a heated dinner debate before coming to blows inside Jordan’s apartment.
The incident was reportedly caught on camera and might make the show.
Gayle has been allowed to remain on the show.
A Channel 4 Spokesperson told the Mirror: “The wellbeing of cast and crew is our utmost priority at all times throughout production and beyond. During filming, an altercation occurred between two cast members which was defused immediately by crew. All contributors involved were offered appropriate support.”
A source told MailOnline that Jordan and Luke struggled to hit it off from the start of the series, but no one was expecting them to come to blows.
“The cast attend a couples’ retreat and during dinner, things get particularly heated between them and later they come to blows inside Jordan’s apartment,” the insider revealed.
Worley’s partner, Howard, has now also left the show as she can’t continue alone.
The rules of the show dictate that couples enter and exit the show together.
