‘And then at the reunion it was like: ”I’m going to blame you for all of this” and I was like ”whoa. We ended this mutually”, like what? I was so confused.
‘And obviously at that time as well I was hurting from the news I had going on at home and trying to adapt back into normality, so I didn’t speak to Matt up until our wedding day was airing.’
In scenes aired on the show, Matt and Adrienne clashed their contrasting views on children – with the former wanting to have kids and the latter not.
In the final week of the experiment when the topic of starting a family was brought up as Matt said: ‘Is there a reason why we shouldn’t work on the outside? We want to travel, we want to do bits and bobs. I would one day like to have kids.’
Getting serious, Adrienne replied: ‘I think we are in an amazing place and I think the world of you. But it does worry me that you do want kids. I’ve always said ”don’t want them”.
‘And I’ve never met anybody that’s made me want to change that answer.’ Looking disappointed, Matt replied: ‘Ummm… do you think that it could be changed?’

She revealed: ‘We have a really healthy, happy, safe, fun, relationship – I really appreciate Matt, it’s what I deserve, we deserve each other’.

Shona went on: ‘I’m proud to be his girlfriend and it just works. Matt would be driving and I would be in the back, we would be walking around Nottingham and I’d be all the way over there, we were like secret agents on a mission’.
Matt added: ‘We had to do it, we had to be so careful… We had to do what we had to do, my experience was good but we were meant to go on those journeys to find each other…
