The pre-recorded show is still scheduled to air as normal on weeknights on E4, as is listed on the RadioTimes TV Listings Guide.

Addressing the allegations of abuse, a spokesperson from Channel 4 told Birmingham Live: "We work incredibly closely with our production partners to ensure all Married at First Sight UK contributors are subject to rigorous background and psychological checks, including the most detailed police checks a production is able to undertake.

"Any allegations of this nature are taken extremely seriously by Channel 4."

Are George Roberts and April Banbury still together?

Despite tying the knot on the E4 reality show, it would appear that the couple are no longer together.


It would appear that the pair have gone their separate ways

Taking to her Instagram Stories towards the end of September, April suggested that the pair had gone their separate ways.

She told her followers: "The traumas that have been brought on from this show have made me re-evaluate things.

"I really have and I'm not ashamed to admit this, I have been seeing a therapist ever since. They have helped me overcome a lot from the show and I am grateful for that."
