EXCLUSIVE: Married at First Sight UK’s Ant and Alexis will RETURN as a couple after they connected romantically following the end of their disastrous marriages to Nikita and Jordon

Ant Poole and Alexis Conomoux will return to Married at First Sight UK as a couple after they connected romantically following the disastrous end of their respective marriages.

The former newlyweds were seen flirting during the show’s first dinner party, which saw Ant’s ex-wife Nikita Jasmine, 26, explode at her fellow cast members and axed from the series after she broke E4’s code of conduct.

Alexis’ relationship with husband Jordon Mundell, 27, also ended in tears after he confessed to cheating on her with Megan Wolfe, 26, despite her being wed to Robert Voysey, also 26.

Now, Ant and Alexis have been given the chance to re-join the experiment as a couple, after bonding over their failed unions.

A TV source told MailOnline: ‘Producers wanted to bring back Alexis, her heart was in the right place and the way she was treated by Jordon was really unfortunate.

‘She deserved another chance at love and to explore her connection with Ant, who was also left in a horrible situation after Nikita proved to be a nightmare bride.’

In tonight’s episode viewers will see Ant and Alexis meet with relationship expert Mel Schilling to discuss the possibility of returning to the show as a couple to explore their feelings for each other.

Scandal: Alexis’ relationship with husband Jordon Mundell also ended in tears after he confessed to cheating on her with Megan Wolfe despite her being wed to Robert Voysey 

The pair’s second chance of love comes after Alexis was left devastated by Jordon who repeatedly said she wasn’t his ‘type’ because he’s only attracted to women with blonde hair and blue eyes. 

The model was subjected to further humiliation when Jordon kissed Megan behind her back and confessed to the betrayal in front of the cast at the show’s first commitment ceremony.

She was also left frustrated on the couple’s honeymoon in the Maldives after Jordon failed to comfort her during a water sports activity, which left her uneasy due to her phobia of the sea.  

A tearful Alexis explained: ‘I’ve worked so hard to be confident in who I am and what I look like and it was just constant digs. He digged out my career, he digged out the fact I wasn’t his type, he just had no time for me at all.

‘We were doing water sports on honeymoon and my fear is the sea and he sat there and he laughed, he was sitting there laughing at me while I’m literally having anxiety in the middle of the deep blue sea and he’s laughing at me like a child. All I needed in that moment was reassurance and I got laughed at.’

Despite pledging to stay in the experiment, Jordon left along with Alexis, after he realised Robert had been trying with Megan, which contrasted with her side of the story. 

Jordon said: ‘There is something I would like to say tonight. So, last night at the dinner party, I found myself having a conversation with Megan. We were very similar in a lot of ways and we actually shared a kiss.

‘She said the relationship between her and Bob was not working, for the reasons that she has been trying and Bob has not been doing anything back.

‘But what I’ve seen tonight was Bob protecting somebody that doesn’t deserve protecting and how I’ve seen her treat him compared to the story I heard and how I feel, I don’t want to be mixed with someone like that.’

During a Q&A session on his Instagram stories on Sunday, Jordon responded to a fan asking ‘Have you got any regrets doing MAFS?’ by saying ‘I shouldn’t have kissed Bob’s wife.’
