Married At First Sight UK star Mark Kiley has revealed that he was told to be 'wary' of show couple Peggy Lawrence and Georges Berthonneau as he claims they had a game plan.
Mark, 36, appeared on FUBAR Radio, where he discussed his experience on the show, his husband Sean Malkin and some of his cast mates.
The TV star, who joined the experiment later on in the series, didn't hold back when it came to criticising his husband Sean, from whom he is now estranged, as he slammed Sean for not defending him after the show aired.
Peggy and Georges were also in his firing line as he claimed that they went on the show to find fame, which he said a lot of this year's cast members were there to do.

Speaking to hosts Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng on Access All Areas, Mark said: "When I got there, I was told to be weary of Peggy [Lawrence] and Georges [Berthonneau].
"Apparently, they believed they were the “it couple” and they have this black notebook of everything they’re going to achieve with the figures and the ratings, how much they could earn. I do feel this series it appears more people are on it for clout and fame.”
When it came to his husband, Sean, Mark revealed that, despite them not speaking since leaving the show in June, Sean had approached him on-camera, saying "I really want to talk to you, I have so much to say".
But the fact that Sean apparently approached Mark on-camera didn't sit well with the latter, who told Sean: "We don't need to be friends."
He continued: “Then he reached out to me just before we were announced and said “I’m here for you, I’ve got your back.” So when I was getting beat up on social media I thought where are you now? He wasn’t there. At our leaving scene he found his voice, when everyone thought he was this lovely person."
Mark went on to claim that Sean had shared things about his friends "slagging me off" and said that Mark had ruined his MAFS experience for him.
He also said that Sean "used me as a scapegoat" and scoffed at Sean's "excuse" for leaving, when he said: "I was so worried about hurting Mark".
Mark also claimed that there are "3 or maybe 4" couples from the show that are still together.
