Married At First Sight UK star defends her ‘overreaction’ to husband’s job after fans slam her

Married at First Sight UK fans slammed Jess Potter following her “overreaction” to her new husband’s job, but she defended her actions.

Jess, 31, sobbed on Friday night’s episode and insisted she wouldn’t go on the honeymoon after Pjay Fincher, 31, revealed his stripper career.

Her emotions worsened as she shouted to the cameras: “I don’t want to go out with a stripper!”

Fans were angry at the dentist for “judging” her husband and his career – as they dubbed her sobbing as “an overreaction”.

The reality star later defended herself in an Instagram post.


“I wasn’t judging Pjay, but coming into this experiment I literally said just don’t put me with a stripper or anyone who works in night life,” she explained of the scenes.

“I need someone to be present in my relationship, I was in shock.

“It’s more my trust issues and not being able to see my husband on a weekend, I don’t have anything against him being a stripper.

“I don’t think I can deal with it because it would mess with my head, and my mental health is more important.”
