Jessika Power and Dan Webb caused uproar at the final commitment ceremony of Married at First Sight Australia.
Viewers have seen the pair getting ever closer behind the backs of their respective partners Tamara Joy and Mick Gould.
In Wednesday night’s episode Jess and Dan dropped the bombshell that they had fallen for each other.
Mick and Tamara both broke down in tears with Tamara having to leave the room to compose herself.
A furious Mick, who said he had wanted to leave the marriage, called Jess a ‘spoilt bitch’ in tense scenes.
Thing were made worse when Jess and Dan, who kissed at the dinner party previously, asked the experts if they could stay on in the experiment as a couple to see if they could make it work.
This was met with outrage by the other couples who felt it would be unfair.
However the experts thought different and after talking among themselves they allowed Jess and Dan to stay on, giving them a week to see where their relationship goes.
Fans were as shocked as everyone else and blasted the decision on Twitter.
The next episode will follow the couples as they go on one last romantic date – with Jess and Dan spending time together on a flashy boat – before making the choice to either stay together or go their separate ways.
Married At First Sight Australia is available to stream on All 4.
