Despite being at the centre of cheating and sex-shaming scandals, Married At First Sight’s Aleks Markovic and Ivan Sarakula have revealed that they are, in fact, still together.

“The pressures and expectations of the experiment got the better of us,” Aleks and Ivan wrote on Instagram, just minutes after the couple decided to ditch Sunday’s commitment ceremony.

“Ivan and I stayed together the evening of our exit and he even saw me off at the airport to be with my family. It was an emotional moment for the both of us. Let’s see if being outside does our relationship any more justice without the pressure and judgements of our peers.

“That being said, regardless of what pans out over the next few days and weeks, we are forever grateful for all of the wonderful people we have met along the way. We are all just humans on our own journey. Spread love, not hate and judgement.”


Married At First Sight continues tonight at 7:30pm on Channel Nine.
