TENSIONS almost always boil over at a Married at First Sight dinner party – and so far this series has been no exception.
Warring couple Porscha and Terrence refused to walk in together for the first one, and this week Laura was left raging after Luke called her a “gold digger”.
Former contestant Amy Christophers, who appeared on the 2021 series, says half the reason the MAFS cast get so pent up is they’re left starving from the “f*****g awful” food.
That, and the fact they’ve been filming since 8:30am and sometimes don’t finish until 3am.
She also reveals there are secret rooms where the cast are held before the mixer – to ensure they don’t speak to other couples beforehand – and before the dinner, to help them “sober up”.
Amy explains: “You’ll be sat waiting in a room, and then they move you out of it, and into a different room.

“And slowly, you get closer and closer to the party – and you’re staggered out so you don’t see the other couples before you walk in, and you have no idea what order you’re going in.”
During the mixer, as couples start chatting, they’re allowed to drink alcohol – and Amy says there’s no limit.
But afterwards she claims they have to go back to their holding rooms to “basically sober up” while the producers set up the dinner party scene.
“Sometimes that’d be an hour, sometimes it'd be two hours,” she recalls.
