Yet another wrote: ‘Leave James and his Gucci cardigan in 2010.’

James had a big night on Sunday with him quitting the experiment after a tense exchange with his bride Jo Todd.

While sitting on the couch alongside her, James claimed he went all out to make his ‘marriage’ work.

But wife Joanne said that was further from the truth, ‘You’re full of sh*t. Please stop your sh*t,’ she urged.  

‘You are talking rubbish. You are making yourself look so much better than what you are. You didn’t try. You weren’t trying. You blatantly lied to my life,’ she snapped.

Jo continued: ‘You haven’t spoken to me for days. You’ve gone missing. You haven’t come back. You didn’t reply to any of my text messages.’

‘There is the issue, and this has got to do with a behavior James, which is classic, stereotypical gaslighting behaviour, and it’s something that has to stop,’ he began.   

‘You start talking in circles, you start to deflect and dodge, put it back on to Jo,’ John continued.

‘We got a close up look at it last night. We watched it for hours and hours, that behavior is gaslighting and it is toxic and it hurts people that are close to you.’

Both James and Joanne then decided to ‘leave’, ending their time on the experiment.
