Matt Murray suggested they stay in the process together
And the episode concluded with the cast getting into a huge row over whether the ‘cheaters‘ should be allowed a “second chance”.
Gemma and Duka unsurprisngly decided to leave in the penultimate commitment ceremony after it emerged Matt and Whitney had shared a bed together.
Relationshp expert Mel Schilling then asked the couples to talk through the events of the past few weeks.
Whitney, 31, explained: “Matt and I’s connection happened like that. I look at him and I get butterflies.
“I just want to be happy and that guy over there makes me happy.”
“I feel disrespected,” Gemma, 30. interrupted her.
“Why not wait until we’ve left this experiment?”
Matt, 32,c then suggested he and Whitney stay as a new couple, saying they’d benefit from the expert’s relationship advice.
He said: “It would be nice to get the experiment with Whitney and see how that can develop. I’d be absolutely frickin’ insane and stupid not to pursue it.”
Mel asked him: “So, to be clear, are the two of you saying that you’re wanting to pursue this relationship here inside the experiment?”
They both said yes and Whitney added: “Matt and I are like fresh, if we could have the help of the experts and find out whether this is something that we should put our lives and our time and our hearts into, that would be amazing.”
Chanita and Jordan then waded in and he said: “In my opinion if you and Whitney do stay it discredits the process.”
Gemma added to Matt: “If you haven’t tried in your marriage, why should you get to start again with someone new?”
“This is a really complex situation… It’s one we don’t take lightly at all,” Mel said, as viewers raged on Twitter.
One said: “I hope the experts say ‘NO’ to Whitney and Matt remaining as a couple as part of the experiment #MAFSUK.”
A different viewer wrote: “These people talking like they’re in Love Island… you haven’t come on MAFS to ‘find someone’… you came to be MATCHED with someone. There’s a difference! #MAFSUK #MarriedAtFirstSightuk.”
