Speaking to The Sun, Kasia said: ‘I came on the experiment to find love and a man that would stand by my side through thick and thin. But, it turns out that the man selected for me would only stick with me through thin.

‘I feel strongly about empowering plus size women so I was never going to accept his fat-shaming antics.’

Adding of the women watching at home, she said: ‘I hope they watched a confident, strong woman who didn’t take any nonsense from a guy who is stuck on the idea that women should be slim.’

It comes after Thursday’s instalment of Married At First Sight UK saw the couples enter into the final commitment ceremony of the series. 

Kasia made the decision to leave the experiment as she noted that things were ‘completely over’ with her husband Kwame Badu, 42, – who initially was hoping to stay in the process.

The decision received a bout of praise from fans, who took to Twitter to explain they were ‘proud’ of the business owner for leaving.

Discussing her current feelings towards her husband, Kasia explained that she ‘tuned out’ of the relationship following a rocky homestay week.

Despite the idea being that each couple would visit one another’s homes, Kwame revealed that he was not comfortable bringing his wife home, and instead showed Kasia his local park.

Things went from bad to worse when the pair headed to Kasia’s house, where her sisters all advised that Kwame was not the man for her.

At the commitment ceremony which followed, she explained: ‘At every corner of my story. Kwame intervened and made a joke or whatever. He doesn’t know how much it really affected me. When that happened I checked out. I’m the real deal b***h.’

Meanwhile, Kwame revealed that while the week was ‘tough’, he was under the impression that he had won over her family with his charm – before learning of their disapproval. 

And as decision time rolled around, Kasia continued that there was ‘no relationship’ there between her and Kwame and proudly displayed her notepad with ‘leave’ written on it.

A surprised Kwame was then left to hold up his own notepad, which read ‘stay’ – admitting that he was hoping to continue the relationship. 

Praise: One fan penned: 'I ended up loving Kasia the most. The releast woman in there was unfortunately partnered with the fakest man; being Kwame. Glad she chose to leave'

As the pair said their goodbyes, Kwame explained that he felt ‘blindsided’ and wasn’t expecting the departure, while Kasia was quite the contrary as she felt ‘free’.

Taking to Twitter, fans were quick to praise Kasia’s bold decision, as one penned: ‘I ended up loving Kasia the most. The releast woman in there was unfortunately partnered with the fakest man; being Kwame. Glad she chose to leave.’

‘Yes Kasia! Showing the UK how to be a strong independent woman and choose yourself over a relationship,’ wrote another, while one fan simply penned: ‘Proud of you’.

Married At First Sight continues on E4, Monday at 9pm.
