Married at First Sight UK fans cringe as Franky claims he’s slept with more than 100 women – and beg Marilyse to ‘run’
MARRIED at First Sight UK fans cringed as Franky revealed he’d slept with more than 100 women tonight.
They begged his wife Marilyse to “run” after hearing his confession to the boys on the E4 reality show.
The lads shared how many people they’d slept with and Franky, 47, said he’d topped the group.
He said: “It’s larger than any number than I’ve heard today.”
Viewers were stunned by his confession after seeing him falling for Marilyse.
One viewer said: “I hope Marilyse gets out. Don’t trust Frankie at all. Seems very controlling and aggressive. Sometimes he’s been downright rude! Run girl!!!”
Another said: “Frankie do not even try to tell me you have shagged 100+ people. You’d be too busy trying to control every aspect of their life”
And one more reacted: “Frankie said his body count is around 100??? How can guys shag so much people I’m baffled #MAFSUK”
Other fans claimed they spotted red flags and accused Frankie of trying to control Marilyse.
But the former beauty queen has put his behaviour down to him before more invested in the relationship than her.
She said: “I do have to say to him, ‘what’s your reason for being sensitive?’ He’s not some manly man you see he’s actually soft and the other day he broke down in front of me.
“We’re not brilliant, we’re not perfect, but I’m going to take each step as it happens.”
Meanwhile, Franky hinted that he’s fallen in love with Marilyse.

But last night Marilyse walked out on Franky after a blazing row off camera.
The pair came to blows following the latest dinner party.
Ahead of the commitment ceremony, Marilyse sat down with some co-stars and admitted her concerns about the marriage.
She told them: “I need somebody that can show emotion. I don’t want to be with somebody like a hard man that everyone is scared of.”

The star added: “I have got to be guarded because I have got two children and my children are really important and that’s that.
“Past relationships haven’t worked for me because some ex boyfriends do not open up and do not show their emotional side of me. I am really torn about what to do for the commitment ceremony. I am going to have to think long and hard
Meanwhile Franky alluded to issues in his past, saying: “My 47 year life has had some dark patches so I have only known her three weeks. I can’t just say on day one ‘oh this happened’ to explain these situations.”
