Married at First Sight fans are fuming after Ant Poole told the boys he doesn’t fancy new partner Alexis Conomoux – despite the fact the pair re-entered the experiment together.
On the boys' night out Ant, 28, was asked by fellow MAFS UK’s Luke Dawson, 36: “How are you getting on with Alexis?”
The Manchester lad paused before replying: “We are…and it was a concern of mine…just friends. We’re so friendly”
Later he was asked if the pair had had sex and he said “no”.
He continued: “I did kiss her and I feel like I shouldn’t have as it led her on a little bit. It’s just friends, just so friendly.”

He was then asked if he thinks Alexis feels the same to which he replied “no”.
Luke asked: “Do you think she’s into you and you’re not into her?”
To which Ant replied: “It’s not that I’m not into her, it’s just I don’t feel that sexual connection between us.”
Strength conditioning coach Franky, 47, offered Ant some advice. He said: “It’s still early days and it could happen.”
The business developer agreed as Franky continued: “Don’t give up because it could happen further on down the line.”
But fans were unimpressed, accusing Ant of 'using' Alexis.
"Am I getting 'Ant Just Wanted More TV Time' vibes? And he's using Alexis to stay on the programme? Even *I* thought they had some chemistry!" raged one fan.
While another wrote: "So Ant is basically using Alexis."
Both Ant and Alexis entered the experiment having being paired with different partners but after both their marriages crashed and burned early, they re-entered together as a couple.
Ant was initially left single after his wife Nikita James, 27, exploded at the first dinner party of the series, and was subsequently told to leave the show by bosses for breaking E4's code of conduct.
Meanwhile, Alexis' marriage to Jordon Mundell ended in tears when he confessed to cheating on her with Megan Wolfe.
Speaking about the pair returning as a brand new romance, a source said: "Producers wanted to bring back Alexis, her heart was in the right place and the way she was treated by Jordon was really unfortunate."
They continued: "She deserved another chance at love and to explore her connection with Ant, who was also left in a horrible situation after Nikita proved to be a nightmare bride."
Alexis was left devastated by Jordon when he repeatedly said the star "wasn't his type" because he's only attracted to women with "blonde hair and blue eyes".
He then kissed Megan behind her back and confessed in front of the whole cast at the show's first commitment ceremony.
It's clear Jordon's intentions weren't great from the start as he failed to comfort Alexis when she felt anxious during a water sport activity on their honeymoon.
