Exciting! Married At First Sight UK’s Lara Eyre has opened the lid on the behind-the-scenes secrets of the latest series
About the editing of the show, she told The Sun: “They can’t force you to say something you don’t want to say, but they can cut huge chunks out of the beginning of a sentence and cut out the important bits.
“During our engagement ceremony it seemed like I was telling Richie that he was too much for me for the first time, but in reality I said it a lot.
“In the clip where he says, ‘This is my first time hearing about it,’ it was in response to me apologizing to him for something else.”

Lara also explained how the days they filmed the commitment ceremonies were from 9am to midnight, with scenes cut down to the small number you see on screen.
She also shared how during the dinner scenes the couples have to be ready at 9:00 am and taken to the location where they have to wait for them to be brought in.
Lara shared that sometimes they had to wait all day and that during that time she became so nervous that she often begged the producers to let her have a drink before going in.
However, she claims that her requests were denied while she had to listen to the other members already having fun and drinking at the party.

Elsewhere, as part of her revelations, she shared how people often met secretly in each other’s rooms.
Lara told how producers tried to discourage it, but people sneak through the halls to visit each other.
She said it ended up being a kind of high school where everyone was “gossiping, talking about each other and arguing.”

Camera ready! Of the show’s editing, she told The Sun: “They can’t force you to say something you don’t want to, but they can cut huge chunks out of the beginning of a sentence and cut out the important bits.”
It comes after last week Lara spoke out about her experience at this year’s edition of the show, calling her match Richie “fake.”
The reality star described the guitarist as “playing against the cameras” during their time on the dating show, while admitting she was upset about being “thrown under the bus” by him.
After a seemingly good start, the couple decided to leave the show during its second week as they struggled to make things work as a married couple.
Richie and Lara first met at the altar, and hit it off immediately when they tied the knot on the offbeat dating show.

But the latter seemed somewhat nervous about her new husband’s lack of dating experience, with the musician admitting he’d never been in love or in a long-term relationship.
And at the second engagement ceremony, single mom Lara called the former rocker a “great guy,” but admitted he wasn’t the one for her — when they decided to break up.
But the Canadian resident has now explained that there was a lot more going on off screen, claiming that Richie “played the camera” and was “totally different” while filming and not.
She revealed to The sun“It felt like I was dating a TV host because Richie was always acting when they were filming and worried about how people would see him.
“When the cameras were off, Richie kept to himself and wasn’t that enthusiastic or caring, he didn’t ask much about me except when they were filming. How can you make a relationship work when someone is performing? I was there for authenticity and he wanted to look great.’
Just a day before they decided to leave the show, Lara and Richie attended the weekly dinner party separately – giving a strong indication of the cracks in the relationship.
But with Richie arriving first at the party, Lara shared that she was “injured” when the musician first chatted with their co-stars – explaining that he “didn’t know” where his wife was at the party.
She revealed that Richie was careful with his image, begging her not to say “bad things” about him while they were standing together, and spoke of her shock when she arrived at the dinner party.

Explanation: ‘It was a bit of a shock when I arrived at dinner and he threw me under the bus. I was pretty upset when I looked back at that.”
Lara also expressed how she wished the show would be filmed more on Love Island, with 24/7 cameras to ensure less acting.
A self-proclaimed ‘superfan’ of the show, the local Nottingham resident was taken aback by the show’s editing, explaining that the heavily edited commitment ceremony changed the actual story.
