Sophie Brown from Married At First Sight UK has hit out at the editing of her wedding to Jonathan Wileman, insisting the episode's portrayal of their day was "completely different" to what happened irl.

The 26-year-old from Manchester took to social media to insist she was painted in a bad light, following their wedding day episode which aired last night [16 September]. In it, viewers watched as the tech manager and carpenter walked down the aisle, before clashing over their career trajectory and, er, arancini balls.

"Jonathan is a lovely guy and Sophie seems a bit stuck up," one fan commented, while another put, "That poor guy, Sophie is a typical privileged girl. Materialistic and thinks she's better than others."

Now though, Sophie has hit back at the show, insisting "the wholesome parts were cut out" and that she's been portrayed in an unfair, negative light. Her statement on Instagram Stories began:

"You can imagine my surprise when I sat own to watch MAFS with my friends and family and a completely different wedding day was shown!! Well, that's what it felt like... We were nattering for about an hour getting to know each other while having pics and an Instagram comment was made. I was talking about where I live and city life in Manchester and how there's a lot of guys there who are Instagram/influencer types and it's not the type of guy I'm interested in, so that's entirely different than what was shown, it's the opposite of what I was looking for!

"You could play bingo with the amount of time materialistic was said and although I like nice things, I haven't bought a 'designer' bag for about a year and a half, and most of my money goes on food. Conveniently all the wholesome parts were cut out of my back story. I really don't care what someone's job is, I'm just attracted to drive and ambition."

Sophie then went on to defend her father's comment about her meeting a "wealthy" partner, and her brother's facial expressions, before insisting viewers will get to a proper insight into her relationship with Jonathan in the coming days.

We for one can't wait.
