One 'Married At First Sight' Couple's Reportedly Already Split

Married At First Sight spoiler alert!

It doesn't look like Married At First Sight is off to a great start as one of the couple has reportedly split, and fans are only two episodes deep.

Nurse Steph, 28, and property manager Jonathan, 39, who tied the knot as complete strangers in the first episode of this year's Channel 4 series, apparently aren't together anymore.

Last night's episode saw the couple head to Seville for their honeymoon, getting to know each other and make their marriage work.

However, Steph, has since been spotted without her wedding ring and the nurse shared a message to her social media describing her perfect man as "a mix of movie hardman Tom Hardy and Idiot Abroad Karl Pilkington", suggesting that Jonathan is no longer on the scene.

A source has also told The Sun that the pair are no longer together - and can't even bear to be in the same room as one another. Yikes!

"Steph and Jonathan were a disastrous match - everyone knew it, even at the wedding," the insider told the tabloid. "It was over within days and she took her ring off almost straight away.

"They can't bear to be in the same room as each other now, and don't communicate."

The source went on to suggest that it's been super awkward for the pair while promoting the show as they can't sit next to one another or even fake smile during interviews.

It's unclear where it all went wrong though or whether they were just a bad match. "It's been a nightmare - her friends and family support her, but knew it wouldn't last," they added.

During the most recent episode, Steph confessed that she was surprised she had been matched with her new husband in the first place, leading many people to question whether their marriage would last.

Channel 4 hasn't confirmed whether the couple have split.
