Married At First Sight UK has finally come to an end for another year, with this year's brides and grooms becoming overnight reality stars when deciding to say 'I do' to a stranger. And resident MAFS expert, who has done the whole thing herself, Chanita Stephenson has given her final thoughts in her exclusive OK! column this week. From who surprised her at final vows to what she thought of the reunion turmoil, the TV star admits that there has been highs and lows as she has watched this series from a viewer's point of view, as opposed to partaking.
The Curtain Closes I have enjoyed this series, it was full of drama! The only thing I wish there was more of is laughter, I feel like it was quite serious and all about the drama. I would’ve liked more age diversity too, all of the couples were quite young. It was the first one since I was on the show and it was strange watching it at points, it was actually quite triggering.
I was in that situation and it does bring back the emotions and triggers a part of your brain, it takes you back to that place. So, at times it was difficult to watch this series. Saying that, it also brought back happy memories of how much fun we all had during my series.
I really enjoyed it and almost found love! It showed me how much I have grown since being on MAFS too, it was such a big part of my life, but I don’t want it to define my life. I think next year I may not be as into it as I was this year, the more time goes on the further I will get from it, I think. I was Chanita before MAFS, then I was Chanita from MAFS, and now I want to focus on being just Chanita again.
