This week's ep of Married At First Sight saw the brides go to their grooms’ hometowns to get a glimpse of their world. Cheryl and Andrew re-entered the competition last week after both of their original matches didn’t work out.
The new couple started their home visit well, but it became awkward when the 38-year-old firefighter had to explain to his friends and family that Cheryl was not in fact the girl he married in front of only a few weeks ago.
His mum and sister were understandably shocked, but nonetheless welcomed Cheryl into their home.
“I'm surprised, but pleasantly surprised,” Andrew’s mum said. "I think Cheryl's a great match for Andrew," she continued.
Andrew later revealed that he wanted to have his first kiss with Cheryl, so he set up a romantic picnic on the beach.
He then whipped out a guitar, and sang a song he wrote for her while she was in the shower, but she didn’t look impressed. After he serenaded her, she told him the song was “really cute."
Andrew tried to seal the deal with a smooch and while Cheryl went with it initially, she then pulled away, and told him straight out: “I don't want to kiss you.” Awks!
Andrew was clearly upset, and told the camera it was “frustrating” and "f---" that Cheryl wasn’t affectionate, while she told producers that the kiss was “too much” for her and that she wanted to move slowly after what happened with her and Jonathan.
But now in an unexpected plot twist, Andrew has spoken out about his apparent rejection and claims he was stitched up by the show's producers and what we actually saw was just clever editing.
Phony footage? On a reality show? Never!
“It’s a TV show guys. I don’t usually read this stuff but… that was our third take. We were mucking around at that stage," Jonesy on the Married At First Sight Facebook page (see above).
“Her comment re the kiss was taken from her wedding with Jonathon. See if her lips move when she says it. Reality shows 101," he added.
The unlucky in love larrikin also claims his heartfelt ditty wasn't even his idea. Oh the betrayal!
In response to fans teasing him over his singing, Andrew revealed: "You're spot on with the song though. Not my idea again."
As relations sour between the couple, it's emerged that Andrew has apparently moved on with another bride from the show.
According to Woman’s Day, he has reportedly dumped Cheryl, and is spending time with one of the twins – Michelle.
“The situation with Andrew is tearing apart the whole show. You’d think Cheryl and Lauren would hate him after he dumped them both, but they’re still texting him and reaching out – and they’re also talking to each other behind his back,” the insider told the mag.
