The couple came late to the show, joining two weeks into the experiment – which pairs two singles together based on their compatibility – judged by a panel of dating experts.
The couple first meet at the altar on the show and build a relationship AFTER tying the knot, going through an eight-week experiment that sees them go on honeymoon, live together and merge their lives into each other’s lives.
Seemingly a perfect match, Matt and Gemma hit it off straight away on their wedding day – hairdresser Gemma makes no secret of her attraction to her new husband.

But his thoughts quickly turned to discomfort as he felt pressured by the sexual nature of her humor and advances, admitting that it “turns me off”.
And during the couple’s honeymoon in Lisbon, Portugal, tensions reached an all-time high when Matt walked away from a romantic dinner date.
Reflecting on the time spent during their first ‘commitment ceremony’, Matt revealed the real reason for his anger.
Matt explained to dating experts and colleagues that their relationship “quickly took a bit of a hit” during their honeymoon.

And when his wife jumped in to have her say, the barber cut him off to say he couldn’t “finish the sentence.”
Gemma replied: “That’s not true, I have to keep to myself Matt because I don’t keep enough to myself. There are all these things that have happened that I haven’t even talked to you about because I don’t feel like I can because you run away. I’m trying to figure out.. I’m trying to think what I’m doing to make you run away.
But looking to represent his side, Matt replied: “Okay, can you explain to these guys why I left on the first day?”
“I left because you started masturbating in a restaurant because of a piece of food you put in your mouth. I left the restaurant,” he explained as a stammering Gemma looked visibly embarrassed.
What! The 32-year-old tattooed barber revealed his reasons for the quick exit during the show, shockingly recalling how his wife touched intimately at the table while they ate
Trying to explain the situation, Gemma described it as ‘just my sense of humour’, leaving her fellow cast members speechless.
And fans took to Twitter to also share their disgust at the incident, with one writing: ‘How can you masturbate in a restaurant!! She is amazing’
“I’m sorry, how did the pundits let the restaurant scenario slip? Imagine Matt masturbating in a restaurant, they wouldn’t let him back on the show,” wrote another.
While another fan echoed: “Gemma needs to take it back a bit, she looks like a sexual predator.”
Although they are late in coming, this isn’t the first time Matt and Gemma have hit the headlines, with a cheating scandal already exposed.
MailOnline exclusively revealed earlier this week that the signed hunk will spend the night with co-star Whitney Hughes, who is married to Duca Cavoli, during next weeks episodes.
The group will go on a couples getaway, with Whitney and Matt getting some alone time — even though their respective partners are under the same roof.
A TV insider told MailOnline: ‘Whitney and Matt really shocked the rest of the cast by cheating on their partners – not only because of the pain but also because of the circumstances.
“The couples had gone to a couples retreat and were there to focus on their relationships, but Whitney and Matt had other ideas.
“Gemma, who thought she had met the love of her life in Matt, was devastated, while Duka had done everything he could to give his marriage to Whitney a chance.”
MailOnline has contacted E4 for comment.
Married at First Sight continues on Mondays at 9pm on E4.
