Married At First Sight UK: Jonathan defends his opinions

‘If I do offend someone, I’ll genuinely sod it, I don’t really care,’ Jonathan said (Picture: E4)

Married At First Sight UK viewers were left feeling a little frustrated after hearing contestant Jonathan Wileman unapologetically defend his opinions.

Jonathan was a latecomer to this series, but things seemed to be going well when he first met (and married) Sophie Brown at the altar.

But, their relationship soon took a turn after Jonathan didn’t hold back from saying he wouldn’t want his wife to get ‘horse legs’ or put on lots of weight (although it would be okay if it was a medical issue).

The controversial topic has been the centre of debate between the other MAFS UK stars, and was once again brought to light in tonight’s recommitment ceremony, where Jonathan made it clear that he didn’t care about offending people.

Addressing comments he’d previously made, Jonathan said: ‘If you know me as a person, I say things in a blunt way, not necessarily seriously, but in jest a lot of the time.

‘If I do offend someone, I’ll genuinely sod it, I don’t really care.’

‘Did you just say you don’t care how it lands?’ expert Mel Schilling questioned, to which Jonathan replied: ‘No, well no, well yeah, I said like sometimes I think I don’t care.’

He continued: ‘I know in my head I don’t mean it in a malicious way, it’s just like a jokey comment.’

When Sophie explained how ‘difficult’ it was to hear comments like those, Jonathan replied: ‘I mean, I am sorry if I offend you in any way, but if you knew me as a person you wouldn’t have taken it as a serious comment.’

‘It’s about how it’s received,’ Mel replied, as she shook her head.

‘I still struggle with understanding where the insult was, because it was an opinion, it wasn’t aimed at Sophie.’

Viewers were left baffled by Jonathan’s defences, with one writing: ‘Jonathan is digging so much he’s gonna end up in MAFS Australia any time soon.’

‘Jonathan, never miss an opportunity to shut up. You’re completely wrong here pal. Completely in the wrong. The emotional maturity of a discarded plastic fork. He basically shagged her and is now bored. Pr*ck!’ another wrote.

Someone else penned: ‘Jonathon. Emotional intelligence of a lettuce.’

‘I think he needs some work, like as a whole, as a person,’ Zoe Clifton told her partner Jenna Robinson.

‘You lack emotional intelligence,’ expert Paul C Brunson added to Jonathan, but he quickly defended himself, saying: ‘Are you going to go through life apologising for the way other people feel for you having an opinion? I’m sorry but like you’re allowed an opinion.’

‘They are my opinions,’ he later added.

Married At First Sight continues tomorrow night at 9pm on E4.
