EXCLUSIVE: Married At First Sight's Mikey Pembroke says he should've been matched with expert Mel Schilling

''Mel's hot!''

By Alex Lilly
He's been partnered with bride Natasha and caught up in a cheating scandal with Stacey, but now another woman has been thrown into the mix with Married At First Sight's Mikey Pembroke.
The 28-year-old operations manager confessed in an exclusive video interview with Now To Love (in the player above) that expert Mel Schilling caught his eye and even added that he should've been partnered with her!

When asked which of the show's three experts- John Aiken, Dr Trisha Stratford and Mel Schilling- he'd like to snog, marry and avoid, Mikey knew one of his answers straight away.
"Definitely marry Mel, Mel's hot! I'd snog John and avoid Trish," he confessed.
But the MAFS groom quickly added, "Actually I don't know about that but definitely Mel, Mel's quite good looking. I should've been matched with her actually." Ouch!
Mel may be Mikey's type but we doubt there's any chance they'll be coupling up seeing as Mel is happily married to husband Gareth Brisbane, whom she met on eHarmony and shares daughter Maddie, four, with.

This isn't the first MAFS star Mikey has admitted feeling attracted to.
The 28-year-old reality star told TV WEEK that once he met some of the other brides, he confessed would be happy to "kiss and have a bit of fun with" if he met them in a nightclub – including his on-screen wife Natasha's good friend Tash.
"She's pretty hot!" he told the magazine. "I quite like the tatts on her."

Mikey was also caught messaging bride Stacey and the explosive texts unearthed by Woman's Day show him begging her to couple swap with him.
"If they let you swap, would u do it? I'm going to see how this dinner party plays out before I decide what I'm going to do...might ask Tara what the go is," wrote Mikey, referring to MAFS' executive producer Tara McWilliams.
"I wanted to kiss u tonight. Don't mean to be forward but some honesty for one can't hurt!" he also penned.
We reckon it's safe to say that Mikey and Natasha are done. (Image: Nine Network)
