Married At First Sight UK groom 'blindsided' as couple leave experiment in final commitment ceremony

Married At First Sight UK star Kwame has expressed his shock after his wife Kasia decided to walk away from the experiment. During the final commitment ceremony of the series, Kasia voted to leave the show while Kwame opted to stay.

It's been a rocky road for the bride and groom whose troubles reached a breaking point for Kasia during the home stays after Kwame decided to take his wife to a park bench rather than to his home or to meet his family. Kasia then took Kwame back to her home where she decided to share her journey with him, only for Kwame to interrupt her story with jokes.

Speaking to the experts at the final commitment ceremony of the series, Kasia said: "I spoke about being a young mum and getting pregnant at a young age. And at every corner of my story, Kwame intervened and made a joke or whatever. He doesn't know how much it really affected me. When that happened I checked out. I'm the real deal b***h."

The couple then went on to speak about meeting Kasia's sisters, with Kwame feeling it was the "highlight" of the home stay and Kasia explaining all three of her siblings advised her to ditch him.

"It's the first time I'm hearing that," Kwame replied. "I'm surprised all three said no. Of course, I'm gutted man."

Kwame and Kasia were then asked if they wanted to leave or stay, with Kasia explaining she had made her mind up she was going.

She explained: "Everything I've just said to you stands. Home stays were amazing for me because it was done and dusted. I shut down. For me, there is no relationship. At all, there's none and there won't be."

Turning to the group, Kasia then got emotional as she said: "I love you guys, my phone is open to you, my house is open to you. I love each and every one of you for different reasons. I could sit down here and honestly say something special about each and every one of you. Because you're all f*****g amazing, you're really good people. But, I'm going."

It was then Kwame's turn, who said: "I took some time out after I left Kasia's home. I felt like I would always speak with K, and I always got the feedback that we were cool. Look, we made it this far so that's saying something.

"Everything that's happened, hasn't changed how I feel. So my decision is to stay."

"I'm not staying," Kasia interjected, to which Kwame continued: "No, I know that, hold on, I ain't finished."

Changing his mind, Kwame added: "I never want to make her stay if she doesn't want to, especially when it's been made so clear. So, I would definitely like to change what I've written to a leave and thank you all and bid you farewell."

Speaking to the cameras later, Kwame said: "I honestly feel blindsided. I feel surprised yet again, I was definitely willing to fight for me and Kasia because I didn't think this was the end of the road for us." For more showbiz and television stories get our newsletter here.
