We know Married At First Sight can take its toll on contestants, but it seems the reality series may have taken the drama too far this time around. MAFS 2020 has reportedly been forced to halt production for two weeks because of the escalating drama, and that one contestant has entered a rehabilitation centre by producers over concerns for their mental wellbeing.

“Apparently, they've just started filming again after a two-week break because the producers were just like, '’this is going too far, we need to resettle ourselves, take a two-week filming break and then work out how we can tackle the rest of the season,’” Hit106.9 host Nick said.
Channel Nine producers are yet to confirm the rumours, but speculation is mounting as to what could have caused the break in filming.
“There is heaps more partner swapping in this season,” radio host Nick continued. “Apparently, they've needed to check someone in [to a rehab facility] because they've gone so loose on the show that they were worried about their mental wellbeing."
According to the Hit106.9 host, the unnamed cast member’s break down may have been brought on after the couples spent their first night together after the ceremony.
In a statement to Daily Mail Australia, Nine producers remained tight-lipped.
“As always with Married at First Sight, the rumour mill is in overdrive. All we can say is: tune in to Nine early next year,” they said.
Guess we'll have to wait this one out.
