After kicking a couple off MKR, a Facebook message landed in Manu Feildel's inbox.

SPOILER ALERT

After promising drama to Australian viewers for months, we now know which My Kitchen Rules couple has been kicked out.

While some fans said that this was a bit of a cheeky “drag out” on the network’s behalf – tonight is the night that viewers will finally be able to see the unceremonious departure of best friends Sonya and Hadil after a particularly nasty exchange of words with sister duo Jess and Emma.

Because the thing is once you call someone a "honey blowfish" on national television there's really no going back.

While it will make for very, very good television, judge Manu Feildel has told The Daily Telegraph that one of the evicted contestants actually reached out to him on Facebook after their exit from the show.

“I got a message on Facebook from one of the people apologising for this and that,” he told the publication, unflinching on his decision.

“But it’s their life and their reputation and it’s not going to affect me the rest of my life."

The French chef defended the decision he and fellow judge Pete Evans made and says that he hopes it will serve as a warning to future contestants.

“I really don’t care what their excuse was because there’s no excuse for this type of behaviour," Manu said.

"I just hope we’ve sent a message to future contestants that that’s not the type of contestants we want in the show. We want cooks. Don't come for a catfight"

Meanwhile, contestants Jess and Emma told The Daily Telegraph they're looking to the altercation finally airing.

"Yes, we might be slightly painful and over the top but we weren’t kicked out. So we’re looking forward to it only for that reason.”

And drama there was... with the pivotal walk out scene delivering the drah-ma (and then some) that we've been waiting all season for.
