In a shocking twist, one of the contestants on Married At First Sight Australia calls it quits, but with so many couples in turmoil this week, who will it be?

“I went off my rocker [this week],” Timothy, 51, tells TV WEEK. “After being thrown under the bus, I didn’t hold back. It’s not going to be my finest hour. I’ve got a hotel booked for when the episodes air so I can just close the blinds and not go out for a week.”

It’s Family And Friends Week, and couples Lucinda and Timothy and Ben and Ellie are forced into separate apartments when they find each other’s company too much. 

“I was heated when we left the commitment ceremony,” Timothy says. “I said, ‘I’m not staying here tonight.’ The [show’s relationship] experts ripped into me pretty hard after Lucinda and I had a great weekend, so I was really p—ed off.” 

Ben and Ellie also go their separate ways, but after spending some time apart, he returns to the apartment to perform a song written just for her, making Ellie emotional and wanting to move forward in the relationship.

However, when Ben does a backflip and does something that devastates her, Ellie kicks him out of the apartment. 

Timothy and Lucinda’s marital woes ramp up at the dinner party when Jayden’s attempts to give Timothy relationship advice see him implode. 

“He thinks he’s Dr Phil,” Timothy says. “I’d like to say to Jayden, ‘If I want to learn about getting kicked in the head [Jayden is a professional kickboxer], I’ll ask you. If I want to learn about money, I’ll talk to Jonathan [a business owner]. I certainly won’t come to you for relationship advice, sunshine.’” 

And when Ellie shares with the group what Ben’s done that’s left her so hurt, they all let him have it. 

With the two couples on such thin ice, it won’t take much for them to write “Leave” at this week’s commitment ceremony. Who will give up and walk away for good?
