Last week, a friend of Married at First Sight’s Andrew Jones told Woman’s Day that his fake-wife, Cheryl, had brought another man into their bed during filming.
“Cheryl got home as the sun was coming up,” the friend told the magazine.
“[She] climbed into bed with Andrew — and so did the guy she’d brought home with her.”
It was thought that if this story were true, it might explain some of Andrew’s poor behaviour towards Cheryl on the show.

But speaking to news.com.au on Monday, Cheryl said the claims were “ridiculous” and explained the true story behind the gossip.
During the home visit to her home town of the Gold Coast, Andrew met some of Cheryl’s friends for drinks. And yes, one came home with her.
“It’s all blown up. To clear the air, I brought back (home) my gay best friend, who Andrew knows,” she said.
“He had no problem with him. Andrew moved over to one side of the bed. I was in the middle and my friend was beside me.
“It’s all a stab at me to say I’m not who I am portrayed on TV. It’s just stupid little things.”
The 25-year-old said Andrew “didn’t have a problem” with the situation at the time.
