Married At First Sight star Luke Eglin has responded to the extraordinary claims of Poppy Jennings about their disintegration, saying that he wishes his ex-wife well and does not participate in a publicly mean contest.
In a long Facebook post on Tuesday, Poppy had accused Luke of feeling “uncomfortable” while filming, and added that he was “petrified” of telling her the full story of her decision to leave the experiment.
Luke, a 39-year-old FIFO employee and father of two, told it The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday: “I’m not going to make comments because, frankly, the best way to respond is not to respond.”

He added: ‘Frankly, Poppy is a good person and good luck to her. I’m not going to comment on anything because it’s not worth it, really.
‘To be honest, she just has to go further like me and that’s it. We are done with the show and that is as far as it goes. “
Luke, who works offshore as a maintenance supervisor, also told it Geelong advertiser: “The best answer is not to respond. There is nothing I want to comment on because it makes no sense [in] extra accuse. “
Wild claims: In a long Facebook post, Poppy had accused Luke on Tuesday of feeling “uncomfortable” while filming, and added that he was “petrified” because she told the whole story
Poppy’s Facebook post, which had collected more than 10,000 responses before it was removed Tuesday afternoon, contained wild accusations about her former “band.”
“I felt uncomfortable with all the things about this person I agreed with and who was wrong!” she wrote.
Poppy also claimed that Luke’s bosses had talked to him before his appearance on the show and warned him that he would “behave at his best.”
Further: Luke, a 39-year-old FIFO employee and father of two, told The Daily Telegraph: “I’m not going to make comments because, frankly, the best way to respond is not to respond”
“You have seen minutes of footage here and there of a man who behaves best because he was drilled by his bosses in advance about how he should behave!” she added.
According to Poppy, there were incidents during filming that were ‘too controversial’ to be shown on television.
“I couldn’t tell what was happening behind the scenes because it was too controversial, so let’s just make her cry ugly and nag about her children,” she wrote.
‘F ** k, I would probably hate myself too! From what I heard, that’s all they play from me! “
During her time at MAFS, Poppy had often complained about missing her two-year-old twin sons who were staying with her mother in Wollongong.
The last word? Poppy’s Facebook post, which had collected more than 10,000 responses before it was removed Tuesday afternoon, contained wild allegations about her former “band”
She also claimed that Luke was not really upset when she left the experiment and became more worried about what she would say about him.
“Why is Luke crying when I left? What really happened that he was crying! You don’t know because I wasn’t allowed to say it! It is too controversial! “she went on.
“He’s scared unless I’ll tell the truth. I was afraid to speak! But I’m going to tell you all about this! “
“It’s not what you see, it’s what you don’t see! Go and ask Luke why I felt so uncomfortable? Why did I really leave?
“He’s terrified. IM going to talk. He knows he’s stopped. Those tears are his because of his reputation and job! “
Claims: According to Poppy, there were incidents during filming that were ‘too controversial’ to be shown on television. She added, “He’s scared unless I tell the truth.”
She closed her position by saying that Luke should be held “responsible.”
A spokesperson for Channel Nine and MAFS producers Endemol Shine Australia said: “We have seen Poppy’s message and noted her grief – we have approached her to provide support and will not make any further public comments, and will focus on doing our the best to support both Poppy and Luke. “
Poppy’s dramatic exit from MAFS was broadcast at the end of Monday’s episode.

The mother of two could not even face her “husband” and forced producers to tell him the news after he left their apartment to give her space.
Luke was blind by Poppy’s decision and fought tears while he tried to compose himself.
‘I had hoped for me and Poppy and I wanted a happy ending above all. That’s it, but what else can you do? It’s all over now, “he said.
“What else can you do?” A producer from Married At First Sight brought the sad news to Luke, who broke through Poppy’s decision to break up with him
Poppy explained her decision and said: ‘I didn’t want to leave under bad conditions or just give up, but at the same time it was hard to get away from my children.
“I didn’t know it would hit me like that. I only cried. I really, really thought that this would be the happy ending.
“[I thought] I would meet someone who would be a good father to my children and I would have a happy family because I deserve it. “
How could she do that? The single father of two was blinded by the sudden exit from Poppy
