April, 40 and George, were married in an informal, non-legally binding ceremony. They met on the hit E4 program.

Ex: April’s husband George Roberts, pictured on the show, was arrested in September for controlling and coercive behavior (pictured on the show).

April returned to her £750,000 apartment in south London – without ‘husband’ George.

Before MailOnline exclusively reported that April was in therapy after her divorce from the father-of-4 was announced. 

Meanwhile Whitney was originally married to Duka on the social experiment programme but fell for Matt, who had himself tied the knot with Gemma.

Gemma and Duka then made the difficult decision of quitting the show. The experts controversially allowed Whitney and Matt to remain together before they split after the show. 

The show’s final dinner party  took another dramatic turn when Adrian Sanderson stormed out following an explosive row with Whitney and Matt.

The digital designer, 37, was left incensed after locking horns with the new couple ranting at Whitney: ‘You’re done, f**k off!’.

As Adrian then tried to settle things with Whitney as she jumped in to defend her man, she dismissed their interactions in the past causing him to tell her to f**k off!’

Matt then piped up telling Adrian that he felt ‘threatened’ by the couple, with Adrian quick to shut down Matt’s suggestion, telling him: ‘If there’s any person in this world who’s going to tell me I didn’t work my a**e off at this marriage, it most certainly will not be someone who didn’t give his a day!’
