MAFS UK's Luke speaks out after being 'axed' from the show

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from MAFS UK 2023. 

Mark Kiley stars in this year’s MAFS UK, although this isn’t his first experience of trying to find love on television. 

The 36-year-old fashion worker appeared on last night’s episode for the first time as he met shop manager Sean Malkin at the end of the aisle. 

The former singletons tied the knot in front of their friends and family with the hope of falling in love with each other as the experiment progresses. 

However, there was an initial setback from the very beginning when Mark admitted he wasn’t immediately attracted to his new husband. 

As their wedding day went underway though, fans clocked where they had seen Mark before.

Mark, who worked as a VIP personal shopper when he was 29, appeared on Channel 4’s hugely popular First Dates back in 2017. 

It didn’t take viewers long to point this out either, with one writing on X, formerly Twitter: “Mark… #MAFSUK, he’s been on #FirstDates too, no???” 

Another commented: “Omg, totally recognise Mark from #MAFSUK from being on @‌FirstDates.”

While a third added: “Mark has been on First Dates. How many “contestants” are there that haven’t been asked to audition after being on another show? #MAFSUK.”

During his appearance on First Dates, Mark went on a date with Junior from Watford, with the former confessing he was “nervous” as he hadn’t been on a date for a while. 

It seemed there was nothing to be concerned about as the pair hit it off from the get-go, bonding over their desire to have children and their aspirations. 

Their date didn’t stop in the famous restaurant either as they went on to have drinks in Soho and shared a kiss in the taxi, according to Mark who appeared on the follow-up show The Awkward Ones last year. 

Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be as things didn’t work out between them with Mark and Junior not following up on a second date.

As MAFS UK 2023 is still airing, it isn’t clear if Mark and Sean are still together. 

They have both praised one another though in interviews with Mark revealing that his “mum loved Sean” and how his “little brother got on really well with him”. 

Meanwhile, Sean was happy with the journey they took together: “The one thing we can definitely say about this year is that everyone was genuinely themselves. 

“There wasn’t necessarily anyone there for the camera, we were all in there for genuine reasons. That made it a really good experience as well.”

MAFS UK 2023 continues Monday to Thursday on E4.
