MARRIED At First Sight Australia’s Lauren Huntriss hasn’t held back in slamming the reality show that made her famous as “full of s**t.”
The blunt star, who appeared in series six of the matchmaking show which has taken the UK by storm, took to her Instagram page to suggest she was “pulled” off the street to feature.

The Married At First Sight series sees a group of relationship experts, including sociologists, marriage counsellors and clinical psychologists drum up a survey, as well as undertaking further tests, to match a pair of complete strangers together – who then agree to get married.
Yet business owner Lauren, who was paired with videographer Matthew Bennett at the start of her relationship experiment in 2018, has poured cold water on suggestions science was behind her match.
Alongside a selfie showing her with freshly-washed hair, and weaing a black jumper, she wrote: “God MAFS is so full of s**t.
“Lol OK John we all know you did not spend months finding the perfect match.

“Producers pulled ppl (like me) off the street just weeks before lol.”
Lauren, who has undergone an incredible weight transformation since starring on the show, rounded off her blunt views and added: “Scientific my a**.”
It appears the show’s magic formula didn’t work for Lauren who, despite making love to Matt and him losing his virginity on their honeymoon, was the first to split and leave the show.
Matt told how he was “not attracted” to his match, and threw his wedding ring into a waterfall.

Following the fracas, Lauren told 9Honey Celebrity: “After Matt embarrassed me in front of everyone at the dinner party by saying he wasn’t attracted to me, I knew it would not be fair on myself or him to prolong the experiment.”
“Matt had never told me he wasn’t attracted to me before and I was really hurt too. I felt that he really betrayed me, especially because I had always been by his side and respectful of him in social settings.”
Yet Lauren has had much bigger issues to deal with since leaving the show, this week revealing her terrifying skin cancer diagnosis after she went for a standard acne check.
Sharing her ordeal on Instagram, she told how she spotted a pimple at the end of her nose and said: “I kept picking and picking, but it wouldn’t go away”.

“A few months later, I noticed it had grown a bit and started looking more like a wort.”
But it wasn’t until the spot began bleeding and then wouldn’t stop that Lauren became concerned.
She ended up going to see a dermatologist about an unrelated skin issue, and it was then that things reached a head.
“I decided to make an appointment with a dermatologist to talk about treatment options for my acne,” she wrote.

“On observation, the dermatologist noticed this spot on my nose. He said it looked suspicious so took a biopsy.”
The results confirmed that the then 27-year-old had skin cancer.
“I was told it had to be removed immediately before it became malignant,” she remembered.
While the cancer appeared small on the surface, it had already begun to spread significantly underneath her skin.

Lauren underwent surgery to remove the cancer and then had to have reconstructive surgery known as “flap repair”, to reshape her nose “after it was left with a nice big hole”.
She said that the experience left her devastated and scared – but she came out without any health complications.
“I remember crying so much but then thinking, ‘Far out, I’m lucky I caught it when I did’,” she said.
