Mel Schilling, 49, who rose to fame as a relationship expert on Married At First Sight Australia, has revealed her outspoken ways don’t “always make it through to the show” when she’s dealing with challenging moments with the couples. The relationship guru, who is currently turning her hand to helping UK singles on Married At First Sight UK 2021, admitted in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk that she struggles to remain impartial when drama unfolds on the show.
She explained: “I do [find it hard] to be totally honest, I do.
“There’s a lot of things to do with relationships that I’m incredibly passionate about and I do have a very human response.
“Particularly when I see someone treating someone else with a lack of respect, or if I see power imbalances in relationships.
“Those are the things that get me really emotional, or angry, really, and I can get involved.
“So I find that really hard, because I am a feminist and I do believe in equality in relationships.”
She added: “So, for me, if I see someone bullying another person for example, I find it hard to just allow… and of course I don’t!
“I speak up with that stuff whenever I can.”
However, Mel claimed that on the Australian version of the hit reality show, her comments don’t always air.
She added: “Unfortunately, it doesn’t always make it through to the show, or the edit.
“But I definitely always speak up about that and I always will.”
Mel also spoke out on her future on the series, addressing whether she would consider leaving the Australian show behind to focus on the relaunched UK version.
She revealed: “I’d love to do both for as long as I can.

“But it all depends on Covid and how the different seasons go.
“There’s so many variables in the mix at the moment, and my family and everything, but for now I’m very happy doing both.”
Mel is loved by viewers for her no-nonsense approach as a love expert.
The star married her long-term partner Gareth Brisbane on December 24, 2020.
The couple share a six year old daughter named Madison.
Mel works on MAFS UK with Paul Carrick Brunson and Charlene Douglas.
The show takes inspiration from the Australian series, which became a big hit with British viewers when it aired last year.
Married at First Sight UK airs Monday to Thursday at 9pm on E4, and is also available on All 4.
