Married At First Sight UK couple SPLIT – and groom has already moved on with new girlfriend | The Sun

MARRIED At First Sight's Brad Skelly and Shona Manderson have split – and he's already found love again after being axed from the show.

The Sun on Sunday revealed Brad was kicked off after displaying “controlling and coercive” behaviour.

Producers of the E4 series grew concerned by his actions towards his wife, teacher Shona, 31.

Fans watched in horror as Brad told Shona to "shut up" and accused her of needing "external validation".

The MailOnline is now reporting Brad, 27, has begun a relationship with Hollie Baldwin, 25.

The couple were seen kissing passionately at the VIP Scarefest launch at Alton Towers on Friday night.

His romance with ex -wife Shona ended shortly after Brad was removed from the show.

Distressing scenes last week caused domestic abuse charity Women’s Aid to speak out about Brad's behaviour.

A show source told The Sun: “The relationship with Shona was getting toxic.

"Bosses stepped in before the situation got out of hand.”

Last year, the show cast financial advisor George Roberts.

He has since been arrested for alleged controlling and coercive behaviour.

A Channel 4 spokesman said: “If any relationships on MAFS UK develop in a way that is deemed unhealthy we take expert advice as to whether the couple should leave the process.

“This was the case with Brad and Shona. Support is available at all times.”

How you can get help

Women’s Aid has this advice for victims and their families:

  • Always keep your phone nearby.
  • Get in touch with charities for help, including the Women’s Aid live chat helpline and services such as SupportLine.
  • If you are in danger, call 999.
  • Familiarise yourself with the Silent Solution, reporting abuse without speaking down the phone, instead dialing “55”.
  • Always keep some money on you, including change for a pay phone or bus fare.
  • If you suspect your partner is about to attack you, try to go to a lower-risk area of the house – for example, where there is a way out and access to a telephone.
  • Avoid the kitchen and garage, where there are likely to be knives or other weapons. Avoid rooms where you might become trapped, such as the bathroom, or where you might be shut into a cupboard or other small space.

If you are a ­victim of domestic abuse, SupportLine is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6pm to 8pm on 01708 765200. The charity’s email support ­service is open weekdays and weekends during the crisis – [email protected].
