Tonight saw Martha and Cyrell go head to head in the most explosive confrontation on Married At First Sight we’ve ever seen.

As viewers will know, the drama began when Cyrell caught wind of a rumour circulating about her husband Nic. According to Martha, he’d rubbed Jess’ leg under the table.

But while Cyrell confronts both Jess and Martha over the rumour, the truth about what happened is never fully revealed – until now!

Nic and Jessika chat to Martha about THOSE rumours!

Here, Jessika and Nic open up to TV WEEK about what really happened that night…

Jessika says…

Jessika admits there was flirtation with Nic.

“Nic rubbed my leg under the table with his leg. I told Ines and Martha at the time because I didn’t know if it was sexual or not. There had been some sort of flirtation going on with Nic and I, but I always passed it off as quite childish.

“I was really down that night because my husband was speaking to every other woman but me. We’d had a big week on the Gold Coast and he broke my trust. I was upset at the dinner party and I think Nic was trying to get my attention to see if I was ok.

“I don’t know if there was more to it. We hit it off because we’re the same person, we’re both funny, we’re both good looking. But there was never going to be anything between Nic and I. We are purely mates. It was blown up to something massive that it wasn’t. I never had a connection with him romantically.”

Nic says…

Nic was shocked by the rumours.

“I was trying to grab Jess’ attention to see if she was ok. She was down in the dumps about her relationship and it all escalated from there. I didn’t think much of it but the next day Martha approached me and said, ‘I heard you were touching Jess up under the table’. I was like, ‘Hold on! That’s not true!’ I wanted to get the bottom of it straight away so I tried to do the right thing by telling Cyrell.

“It wasn’t sexual. It was a little leg touch, it was me reaching out with my foot. Jess is a bit of a flirt in general, that’s her personality. But there was no malice in it. I was committed to Cyrell.”

Married At First Sight airs Monday to Wednesday, and Sunday, 7.30pm, Nine Network.
