Finding the right person to get married is a task for most people. While some may be lucky to find their soulmate in the usual ways, others have to take help from the outside. For many people that means dating apps or matchmakers but for a select few it also means E4’s reality TV show Married At First Sight UK.

Out of all the couples of the 2023 series, only a select few are still together with their partners. While some others have found love elsewhere, two co-stars in particular - Matt Pilmoor and Shona Manderson - have also found love in each other.

Are MAFS UK’s Nathanial and Adrienne dating?

And now it looks like they may not be the only pair of co-stars to have found love in someone else on the show. MAFS UK former groom Nathanial Valentino recently shared a snap with intruder bride Adrienne Naylor hinting they may be more than just friends.

The duo looked pretty happy as they used the camera on the self-checkout machine for a selfie. According to The Sun, Nathaniel and Adrienne were at a snack stop when they posed together with packets of meat and cheese in their hands.

Both the MAFS UK alumni were very casually dressed. Adrienne wore a plunging black jumpsuit with her long blonde hair styled in waves, while Nathanial donned a baseball cap and black knit jumper. Nathanial tagged Adrienne in the snaps and wrote


This isn’t the first time the couple has sparked rumours that they are together. In the last two months, they have shared a string of pictures, reels and snaps on Instagram that hint that they may be more than just friends.

MAFS UK fans divided on Nathanial and Adrienne’s potential romance

The social media posts have tons of comments from Nathanial and Adrienne’s friends hyping up the duo. Many fans have also flocked to the comment section of their posts to show their approval of the endless romantic possibilities between the two. They took to their Instagram posts and wrote:

Are you together, stunning couple xx
Please say you and Adrienne a couple you guys are so cute together. Best looking couple of the show!
Couple goals

Meanwhile, many other MAFS UK fans - who have watched the show like a hawk - have also claimed that their relationship may be ‘fake’ or for ‘social media.’ Their allegations stem from the fact that Nathanial, who is pansexual, has openly criticised the MAFS UK bosses for pairing him with a woman when he wanted to be with a man on the show. A comment on his post read:

I’m confused because didn’t Nathanial say he specifically asked for a man in mafs and was mad when they gave him a woman because he knew he wouldn’t fall in love with a woman?

Another replied:

Manipulation. Make people think they’re together when they really ain’t and collect coins from it. Not exactly honest is it

Neither Nathanial nor Adrienne have come out yet to address the rumours of their romance.
