Married at First Sight's Craig: "It was all scripted. What you saw on TV was nothing, trust me.”

Married at First Sight’s Craig Roach has revealed what really happened during the filming of his and Andy’s relationship – which seems was even shorter than we thought.

The 41-year-old had a disappointing time on the show – splitting from his “husband”, Andy John, during the honeymoon.

The hairdresser has revealed on Facebook, however, he’d decided he wasn’t going to stick with Andy, also 41, within a day of meeting him.

“Fortunately for me I knew within 24 hours that this guy wasn’t good for me at all and got the f*** out of there,” he wrote in a recent post.

“We were required by the producers to shot some footage of us getting to know each other as they didn’t have any.

“So I agreed to 2 scenes of us spending time together that was all scripted.”

“What you saw on TV was nothing what really happen TRUST ME!”

During an episode of Mamamia’s TV podcast, we asked ‘Is having a gay couple on MAFS a Good Thing?’

He began the post by saying he made a “stupid mistake” appearing on the show.

“Although I have no regrets doing the show I’m sure you realise it’s all edited and nothing you see is what was the actual events,” he wrote.

Craig, who along with Andy had faced backlash before the show aired for being the first gay couple on the program, said he was not happy with his portrayal.

According to, upon seeing the first episode – where he threatened to leave when the ring was missing –  Craig said the producers “put words into my mouth that I didn’t even say”.

“There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes that nobody knows about, unfortunately,” he said.


“I hope people see beyond the way I’ve been portrayed and not the way it’s been edited.”

Craig is the not the first person to describe the show as being heavily edited, with Clare from season two recently putting her wedding dress on eBay with a biting description.

But even though it was not a happy ending for the show's first gay couple, Craig said on his Facebook post that there was a silver lining.

“It’s definitely made me realise who I am and accept myself for the person I have become.”
