Celeb in 5: Thursday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. The MAFS’ reunion photos that show the three couples that are still together.

We may still be knee-deep in MAFS drama at this point in the explosive reality program’s run, but all we really care about is who actually makes it out of the experiment alive still together.

Well *spoiler alert*, thanks to a sly photographer who snuck onto the MAFS reunion set ($5 on the French waiter) it looks like we might already know.

According to Daily Mail (who the French waiter may or may not work for), while six ‘marriages’ remain intact (though hanging by a proverbial thread) as of last night’s episode, just three still appeared to be together by the time of the show’s reunion dinner party, which was filmed in Sydney in January.

And, well, we’re pretty devastated that one couple in particular seem to have fallen apart.

Photos taken outside the set seem to confirm Jessika Power and Dan Webb were still together in January, and may still be now. It also seems as though they were allowed to re-enter in the experiment as a new couple after being involved in the cheating scandal that has infuriated the nation and John Aiken, pls.

As for the remaining two couples?

Jules and Cam (thank the lord) and... Martha and Michael.

Sadly, it doesn't appear as though Mark and Ning, who each arrived alone, made the distance, and we blame Jessika.

...Although we were low-key thrilled that it looks as though Heidi finally stopped taking the experts' advice and left Mansplaining Mike.

“I remember the little casket being carried down [the aisle] at her funeral and Sarah was just standing there whispering, ‘Mummy is so, so sorry. She loves you’," the sports journalist told Who

“I saw firsthand the devastation and impact giving birth to a stillborn baby can have on a family, and it’s something you can never recover from. The connection and bond you have with your unborn child is so powerful," she added.

3. Why Dax Shepard married Kristen Bell despite never believing in marriage.

For Dax Shepard, marriage was something he ever considered.

But when he met his now-wife Kristen Bell, everything changed.

Speaking in a new interview for People, Kristen described what made Dax change his tune, despite never believing in marriage.

"He has a great argument that the state having a piece of paper doesn't mean he's going to be nice to me and by my side for the rest of my life. [Rather], that is going to be evidenced by how we treat each other and the commitment that we make," Kristen explained.

Eventually, after coming to terms with the fact that she would never marry Dax, Kristen compromised.

"I had surrendered, like 'OK, well, I'm never going to get any sort of traditional marriage out of this, and that's OK because I trust him.' I really, really trusted him and believed that we were going to go the long haul."

But several years later, Dax got down on one knee, with the couple getting married in a private wedding ceremony in 2013.

"Forget the tradition or history of marriage as a concept, you knowing I was doing something that I didn't want to do because I loved you was a big sign for you," Dax said.

So. Cute.

The amount Brendan Fevola has spent on Uber Eats in the last 18 months has been revealed and oh boy, it's bad.

Since 2016, Fevola has spent $35,500 on 588 Uber Eats orders.

Yikes.

And we thought our Uber Eats spending was bad...

For comparison, Fevola's co-host Fifi Box also shared her total spend on the app.

Since last November, Fifi has spent $2600 on the app on 54 orders.

"When I feel pregnant I can't cook, it's just a thing I can't do," she said on air.

"I've ordered a lot of Uber Eats since November."

5. Everything we know about the rumoured "glassing incident" during the MAFS reunion special.

Well.

It sounds like this season of Married At First Sight is going to get even more dramatic… if that’s even possible.

Earlier this month, radio host Grant Denyer claimed that there was a “glassing incident” during the reunion special of the reality show.

According to the radio host, crew members were forced to intervene when a fight broke out between Cyrell and another bride.

But now it seems there may be some truth behind the rumour after all.

Speaking to Grant Denyer on air on Wednesday, Cyrell’s on-screen ‘husband’ Nic responded to the claims.

Find out exactly what Nic said in our earlier post here.
