Sandy and Dan seemed like one of the most stable couples in this season of Married At First Sight.

Now, an accidental “butt dial” on a boys’ night out causes one person to storm out.

Dental hygienist Sandy, who married Dan in a traditional Indian ceremony, says there was ”definite chemistry” between them early on.

”We had a great honeymoon and I thought, ‘Wow, this is my person,”’ she tells TV WEEK.

Dan gets more than he ordered at the dinner party.

So it came as a shock when Dan revealed at the last commitment ceremony that he wasn’t sexually attracted to her.

”I tried to be dignified, but inside I was hurt,” she admits. “Dan and I had shared intimate moments. It made me feel like it was all a lie.”

Dan’s revelation at the commitment ceremony doesn’t spell the end for the couple – in fact, this week on MAFS, they take their relationship to a new level of intimacy.

”I started to make excuses for Dan’s behaviour,” Sandy, 36, explains.

”The very start of our relationship was so good that I kept thinking, ‘Maybe we can get back to that.”’

Then comes the butt dial. Dan is out with the boys, including new grooms Hugo and Rupert, when Rupert accidentally calls his bride Evelyn.

Evelyn hears Dan talking about Sandy, and Hugo talking about his bride Tayla. What they’re saying isn’t complimentary.

”It made me furious, more so with Dan because he had this big facade,” Evelyn says.

”I thought he was stringing Sandy along. I’m thinking, ‘Those pieces of s***!”’

Sandy and Dan had a gorgeous wedding day, but not all was what it seemed…

Evelyn makes up her mind to reveal what she’s overheard at the dinner party and to hold Dan accountable in front of all the other couples.

”I was s****ing bricks,” the 26-year-old model admits.

”Like, ‘This is my second dinner party and I’m dropping this bomb on everyone.’ But my main priority was Sandy, just wanting to have her back.”

Sandy says when she found out what Dan had been saying about her, she felt ”embarrassed and disrespected”.

Poor Sandy.

However, with the support of the women, she finds the strength to lay it on the line with Dan at the dinner party.

”I wanted him to know I won’t put up with being disrespected or treated poorly,” she says.

”I deserve better from my partner in a relationship. Everyone does.”

In the end, it’s something Evelyn says that sees Dan storm out. Is it all over for Sandy and Dan?
