Married At First Sight UK’s Luke and Morag at 'breaking point' after sex chat

By Sam Elliott-Gibbs

Married At First Sight UK trouble couple star Luke and Morag are now officially at 'breaking point'.

The E4 reality series sees couples paired and married at the first time of meeting - but Morag has already stated she feels like she has not got 'what she ordered'.

Both husband and wife have attempted to make things work for weeks.

But viewers have already seen Luke reduced to tears after his new wife told him that he needs to "be more manly."

Issues in the bedroom are also holding them back as she says the 'sexual connection' just wasn't there between them.

There appears to be little attraction and a new preview clip paints a clear picture of the pair's problems.

"We took the advice and started talking but it came back to the image issue - what we talked about on day one," he says.

Morag, 31, chimed in: "I spent a lot of time around people who care about what they look like."

Luke replied: "Image is not a big thing for me" before she simply says "I know."

They were asked how the physical intimacy.

"For me, I need a glass of wine," the veterinary nurse tells him.

"I tried telling Luke what turned over in the bed - he didn't like what I had to say.

"We need these hard-hitting conversations and if he is going to turn away and not be interest then we are not going to get anywhere."

Tellingly, Luke, 36, then says: "I don't know what to do. It's infuriating.

"I'm at breaking point. I'm really close, if I'm honest."

Morag seems totally unconvinced by him and said last week: "Me and Luke get on well and I really like his personality. But he is still being really reserved which is the complete opposite of what I normally go for.

"As shallow as it sounds, his wardrobe is really starting to turn me off too."

Many fans feel for Luke and took aim at the vets' lethal putdowns.

One wrote on twitter: 'So brutal Morag, "be more manly" to a bloke with confidence issues about how he looks, us women aren't all a******* Luke!"

Another said: "Poor Luke, imagine being a gentleman and treating your wife nicely and being told you're not manly enough?! I'm sorry Morag, jog on babes."

Married At First Sight UK airs weeknights at 9pm on E4.
