It was Natalie who called time on her marriage to Collins on the show, who felt her groom was not being genuine towards her.

During the first commitment ceremony, Natalie wrote leave, whilst Collins voted to stay, meaning the couple were to remain in the experiment for another week.

MAFS expert John Aiken had stern words for Collins during the sofa session, advising him to "fight" for his marriage in the next week.

In their first meeting after the commitment ceremony, Collins told his bride that he wrote stay "to show you and really also tell you I'm trying my best."

Natalie followed up by asking him to give her an example of when he was happy in the marriage, not including the wedding day.

"Every moment I see you I am happy, because that's what I'm here for," he responded.

An unconvinced Natalie claimed Collins was acting, with her feeling like she was on "the set of Neighbours or Home and Away."

"It just feels so manufactured," she told the camera. "If this is the real him and that's him forever, I could not do that, it's exhausting."
