Married At First Sight UK's Morag Crichton has opened up on her time on the hit Channel 4 show, admitting that she went in there "so naive" over what to expect from the experience.

Morag, 31, who is a veterinary nurse, was paired up with firefighter Luke, 36, and they wed in the second episode of the 2021 series. Despite several ups and downs between the couple, they decided to tough it out until the commitment ceremony – but then went their separate ways.

Following their time on the show, things went downhill quite quickly as Luke fumed he was "played" by her, while she claimed he never called her.

Now, nearly a year on, Morag has spoken out on their time together, which led producers into offering her private therapy over scenes that played out both on and off screen.


"If they asked me to go on another show, I would because I won't go in there so naive. I'm not going to go in and think, 'Oh my God, they're going to match me up with my perfect guy!'" she told OK! magazine at the launch of Bertie Garratt's clothing label WHSKY.

She continued: "I went in there so naive thinking it was going to work. I stuck around with the wrong guy because I was naive. They take all of that information of what you want and they go and find the opposite.

"The thing with me and Luke was I stuck around thinking, 'They must have put us together for a reason,' again with the naivety when really I should've packed my bags on the honeymoon."

Moragwent on to speak about the aftercare from the show as much like other reality shows such as Love Island, Married At First Sight also has psychiatrists on hand to help the cast through difficult moments.

"We always had a psychiatrist or a therapist or somebody to talk to," she explained. "Sometimes you felt that they really were leaning towards the show, like they were paid for by a show as opposed to being somebody completely separate."

The reality star, who recently shared a peak inside her Essex home, continued: "However, I was myself offered to have private therapy and they offered to pay for my private therapy because of what happened."

As far as Morag is aware, she's the only person from her series to have been offered this service, but said "others should've been" given the same choice.

The blonde beauty said she did look into local therapists to see what her options were, but never took it further.

She's since thrived on her own as she's bought a camper van she's currently renovating and is enjoying focusing on herself. ""I'm amazing now. I'm so single, happily single and I am going to stay that way," she told OK!

With the new season of the Channel 4 just around the corner, Morag gave some crucial advice for those set to appear on screens as she encouraged them to deal with their internal traumas before marrying someone.

"The advice I would give is going into a show like that would be go in the whole of you, not a half of you," she said. "Don't expect someone else to pick up your pieces of the things and the parts of you that you have lost.

"Deal with that first, don't bring it in for somebody to pick up the pieces and be your carer and your mother. And ultimately post-show, do not worry, you will be alright."
