“Right now are you taken or are you single?” he was asked.
“Nah I’m single,” Anthony on Married at First Sight replied without hesitation.
The 38-year-old firefighter spent Sunday night’s episode bagging his “wife” Cheryl while out for a night with the boys. Andrew labelled himself ‘single’, and made fun of Cheryl for asking for space.
Turns out, Cheryl, 25, was just as surprised as the rest of Australia when she heard the content of Andrew’s comments as they were aired on Sunday evening.
“I don’t want to be with someone who goes and talks about me behind their back in a degrading way,” she told TheFIX yesterday.
“I’m all for a little banter here and there, but to constantly bring up your partner in a degrading way? I thought it was disgusting.”
Cheryl was told by fellow contestant Sean about Andrew's behaviour previously - "it was just crap," he told her. But she didn't know the details and thought he might have been overreacting.
"Before the boys' outing, we both said let's go into this with a clear head and leave the past behind us," she said. "So when I got told by Sean what had been said, I was in a little bit of shock. It was pretty disgusting. I thought it wasn't going to be as bad as what Sean made it out to be."
