Nikita Jasmine, 26, from Co Durham, was paired up with business development manager Ant Poole, 28, from Manchester, as part of the E4 series, which sees strangers get married having never met each other before saying “I do”.

But after "a situation escalated off camera", the model and sales worker was asked to leave the show following an aggressive outburst.

Channel 4 say that Nikita, who is friends with Geordie Shore stars Chloe Ferry and Sophie Kasaei, had “breached” the “agreed code of conduct on behaviour”.

A statement from the show said: “The wellbeing of cast and crew is our utmost priority at all times throughout production and beyond.

“During filming, a situation escalated off camera and Nikita displayed a level of aggression that was unacceptable and breached our agreed code of conduct on behaviour. As a result, she was asked to leave the experiment.

“All involved have been offered support and Nikita has since apologised and resolved the situation with those involved.”

The show follows the successful Australian series, with couples making a “lifelong commitment” to each other at a ceremony that mimicks a wedding, rather than it being a legal marriage.

Married At First Sight UK airs Monday to Thursday nights at 9pm on E4.
