Married at First Sight UK alum Chanita Stephenson has said she gave 'ex-husband' Jordan Emmett-Connelly "another chance" following the E4 marital experiment.

Chanita, 29, had been paired up with Jordan, also 29, on the popular reality TV show but their romance ended during the process, with them ending the show separated.

Speaking about their relationship on Heart Breakfast this morning, Chanita said she had given him a second chance after the experiment but they're now "just friends".

Chanita made the remark to Heart FM radio presenters Amanda Holden, 51, and Jamie Theakston, 51, as she was asked about her dating life now.

She explained that there is "not a lot" happening in terms of her dating people since appearing on the show. She said she's only recently "cut ties" with Jordan romantically.

Chanita explained: "It's only recently that I cut my ties with Jordan in that sense, and we've been friends". She added: "So I've kind of taken a step back and gone with the flow".

The social worker teased that it's "a bit hard" to begin dating someone at the moment. She suggested that it's difficult to do so in light of having just been seen getting married on TV.

And although she didn't end the process in a relationship, Chanita said she has still made an "amazing friendship" with Jordan. She noted that she "wouldn't change anything".

Jordan said he "didn't see a future" with her and recently took to social media to apologise for having "upset" Chanita.

In a post on Instagram just days ago that he had "handled the situation badly".

The former couple were among the cast of the latest series of Married at First Sight (Channel 4)
