Married At First Sight certainly delivered on the drama during its debut, thanks to Whitney Hughes.

The unpredictable E4 series, which sees relationship experts matching singletons they deem compatible before tying the knot, graced out screens for a second season.

As the newly formed brides and grooms were introduced to each other, personal assistant Whitney expressed that she hoped her other half would haver a muscular physique and a full beard.

Although she didn’t say much, her eyes certainly did a lot of the talking when she was partnered with recruitment HR coordinator Duka Cav and declared it ‘the worst thing I’ve ever done in my f**king life.’

‘I wanted a man who’s a man that’s towering over me, like massive, like a brick house,’ she remarked.

‘Compared to a house, maybe he’s a shed.’

But she didn’t ‘knock’ his facial hair, so that’s something.

Reflecting on the pair’s awkward encounter, body language expert Judi James explained how Duka demonstrated signs of unease.

She said: ‘To be fair, Duka’s body language also hinted at rejection although his signals were subtle rather than overkill signals, like his bride’s. His tongue-poke looked conflicted, and his staccato blinking suggested a build-up of anxiety.

‘The show is all about the drama though, which meant we will be watching Duka trying to break through Whitney’s barriers and find that inner warm heart and vulnerability that we’re allowed to glimpse every time she cries.’

Judi continued: ‘She informed us that she is actually very kind so now it is up to Duka to chip away hopefully. He’s already in amateur psychologist mode, diagnosing her ‘fear of loss’ that will probably morph into a ‘self-scuppering’ personality diagnosis based on fear of rejection or something by episode two.

‘The way Whitney placed her hand firmly on top in their hand clasp suggests she’s already leading him though, rather than the other way round.’

Whitney’s obvious disappointment didn’t go down too well with viewers with one saying: ‘Christ, Whitney is unbelievable. She must have known what she was going to have to do/say as part of being on the show. How disrespectful to Duka.’

‘I can not deal with this woman. There is absolutely no need to be so rude. Duka is so pleasant and polite and she is just so embarrassing,’ another said.

Will Whitney and Duka give their romance a shot, or are they doomed to fail?

Only time will tell.

Married At First Sight UK continues Tuesday at 9pm on E4.
