    Married at First Sight UK star Thomas Kriaras has said that Channel 4 bosses bosses "saved" his co-star Shona Manderson.

    Fans of the E4 reality show watched Shona's time on the experiment come to an end in recent scenes after the experts asked her and husband Brad Skelly to leave after a series and the pair are no longer together. Their co-star Thomas has since spoken out about their departure and admits he was "scared to see what would have happened if they stayed".

    Since leaving MAFS UK, both Shona and Brad have addressed their time on the show and Thomas says that Brad should be not blaming the edit and claimed that viewers didn't get to see the full picture of what Brad was doing to Shona away from the cameras.

    Thomas told Daily Star: "I think Channel 4 saved Shona. She's an incredibly vulnerable person when it comes to relationships, she gets attached very easily, and she would have done anything for Brad and whilst I don't think Brad is an evil person, I think he does have a lot of demons which he's trying to address with his spirituality but it came out during the show and if this could happen in three weeks I was scared to see what would have happened to Shona after the entire process had finished if they had stayed to the end.

    "I don't like how Brad, presently, hasn't been accountable for his behaviour. He's blamed it on the edit but the edit can only show what you've done and not show what you've done, it can't make things up and that's what I really don't like. I'll be honest I think Brad got a good edit relatively because there were things that weren't shown that he was doing so he got a good edit. Channel 4 saved Shona."

    Following her exit from MAFS UK, Shona said: "It's actually all worked out better than I could have planned. In terms of like, where I am now, who it's led me to and how I feel about myself, the lessons I've learned. It's all just super positive." Brad has also taken to social media to give his side of the story, where he denied being controlling and admitted he felt very "misunderstood".

    Thomas also revealed has been inundated with cheeky messages from fans following his hunky transformation. He has hit the gym almost every single day since filming the E4 social experiment and says he has found his happiness now after battling with confidence issues due to a previous "toxic" relationship with an ex-girlfriend.

    Watching back the reality show, which was filmed earlier this year, Thomas says he looks "unhealthy" and had "little confidence" and has now undergone an image overhaul which has sent his fans wild.

    Thomas said: "One girl messaged me in my DMs saying 'I'd let you ruin me' and I just replied saying 'The only thing I want to ruin right now is a box of Cheerios' and then she was blocked."

    "Ever since I left the experiment I've been at the gym almost every single day. I think I've only ever taken two days off in a row since I've left. I used to be incredibly athletic, I played international rugby and I got injured and lost it. Especially with my last long-term relationship, I changed my body for her because she was overly critical at the fact that my body was skinny but now I've changed my body for me because I want to be my best self."

    "I didn't expect the reaction on social media because when you are going through the transition you don't notice it little by little but watching it back so how I behaving and how self deprecating I am, how little confidence I had and how unhealthy I look."

    "Someone said I looked like a marionette doll that had been brought to life, with jet black painted hair, bright red lips and pale-ish skin. I was like 'oh my god I can see it' and it was the most funniest comparison ever. People are saying 'where is this Thomas?', 'why don't we get to see this Thomas on the show' and that's because I was so self-defeated before the experiment but it has given me my happiness back."

    "All my friends were concerned saying I'm different. Different in a good way but they thought it was a negative thing. A lot of my friends have been upset with it because how different I am and look but I'm becoming the person I am because I was so restrained and caged."
