MAFS AU: Dave Hughes rips into ‘horny mum’ controversy

Dave Hughes rips into Married at First Sight and questions why ‘horny mum’ Melissa was paired with Josh who was ‘retired from r**ting’

Dave Hughes has ripped into Channel Nine’s Married at First Sight.

In a foul-mouthed stand-up routine, the 52-year-old funnyman mocked the latest season featuring Josh White, 40, and frisky divorcee Melissa Sheppard, 41.

Hughes criticised the couple as a mismatch between ‘Australia’s horniest mum’ and a husband who was ‘retired from r**ting’. 

MAFS drew controversy this year when the show paired ‘sex-obsessed’ Sheppard with White, who came across on screen as more timid. 

Loading an excerpt of his routine to Instagram on Thursday, Hughes captioned the clip, ‘The problem with MAFS’.

Hughes begins his routine by saying this year’s MAFS featured ‘Australia’s horniest mum’.

‘And I respected her,’ he joked. ‘A horny mum who was happy to tell people how horny she was and good on her.’ 

During the video Hughes can be seen making fun of the White/Sheppard ‘marriage’, telling his audience if he was an ‘expert’ on the show he would have matched Sheppard with a ’19-year-old guy’.

‘He’s up for the r**ting she wants to do,’ he joked, before questioning why, ‘they put her with a bloke who was almost 50!’

It comes after Married At First Sight star Sheppard broke her silence after being slammed for her appalling behavior towards her on-screen husband.

The 41-year-old hairdresser made some shocking claims about her ex Josh White during the on The Kyle and Jackie O Show in February.

She accused him of being a ‘different person’ in one-on-one interviews with producers and revealing unflattering details about their sex life.

The single mum also said her portrayal as an overly demanding lover was unfair and all she wanted was sex ‘two to three times’ per week.

Melissa explained that while things started off great with Josh on their honeymoon, their relationship went downhill once they moved in together.

‘Josh is a very different person in front of me and he would go to [film] these vox-pops. I felt like I was sleeping with a secret assassin,’ she added.
