MARRIED at First Sight stars Matt Murray and Whitney Hughes are rekindling their romance, a source tells The Sun.

The pair – who didn't get married on the E4 show – are battling to make things work after sensationally splitting from their 'spouses' to be together.

A source said: “Whitney and Matt are giving their romance another go. Feelings don’t disappear overnight.

"One minute they are on, and the next they are off. For now they are trying to make it work as it seems they belong together."

Whitney suffered a rough start on the series when she accused 'groom' Duka Cav of faking his feelings.

She's determined to make a go of it with Matt but said she'll call it quits at the first sign of trouble.

The source added: "They have given each other space, because the romance has not been an easy ride and Whitney has been leaning on her MAFS pals to get her through.

"This time she has told Matt that if he messes her about with his emotions, she will block and delete him."

The duo finished the E4 experiment declaring they were "in love" – despite a tricky time which saw them split with their original show partners.

However, Monday's reunion dinner revealed they had since split.

When asked: "What's happened?" Whitney is first to explain: "Over it," before the pair burst into laughter.

Matt has been one of the most controversial stars of this series.

Matt, dressed in a smart green shirt and jeans, appears lost for words as he responds: "Erm. Coming out of the experiment we spent a lot of time together to start with didn't we?"

Talking of his former partner's visit to his Huddersfield home, he adds: "Whitney came up to mine, I went down to Whitney's.
