MAFS UK Brad and Shona split – with axed star already in new romance
Married at First Sight star Brad Skelly has reportedly moved on from his bride, Shona Manderson, after being removed from the show.
Brad was taken off the Channel 4 show following his "controlling and coercive" behaviour.
TV producers became concerned about Brad's actions towards his wife, Shona, including a tense scene in which he told her to 'shut up.'
But the 27-year-old is now reportedly in a new romance, with the Mail reporting that he is dating bridal model Hollie Baldwin, 25.
The new couple were seen sharing a passionate kiss at the VIP Scarefest launch at Alton Towers on Friday, October 6.
On Sunday, Brad's 'new girlfriend', Hollie, confirmed her relationship with the father of one by sharing a picture of them together on social media alongside a padlock emoji.
A source told MailOnline: "It wasn't long after Brad was removed from Married At First Sight UK that he and Shona went their separate ways.
"It was clear from the process that their relationship was never going to work.
"Brad and Hollie know each other from their hometown and connected instantly. They were kissing in front of the other MAFS UK cast on Friday night, not holding anything back."
They added that Hollie and Brad tried to avoid any official pictures of them being taken at the Alton Towers event as they didn't want to spoil that his marriage to Shona on the show is over.
Brad was removed from the show due to his 'toxic' behaviour towards his wife, whom he met at the altar.
In emotional scenes that have not been aired yet, expert Paul Carrick Brunson tells both Brad and Shona, 31, that they need to leave the experiment.
A Channel 4 spokesperson told OK!: "The couple’s exit plays out in the show. It was agreed alongside experts Paul, Mel, and Charlene that the intensive Married at First Sight environment was not working for the couple, and it was the right time to leave the experiment.
"The relationships on Married at First Sight UK are closely monitored off-screen by production and an independent psychologist.
"If any of the relationships develop in a way that is deemed to be potentially unhealthy for either party, we would take expert psychological advice as to whether it was time for them to leave the process.
