After the second dinner party of the series, Adam and Franky sat down to discuss his marriage to Marilyese.

After being asked how the relationship was doing, Franky said: ‘We’ve got to figure out some steps. But let’s see.’

Meanwhile Marilyse confided to the camera: ‘Last night, after the dinner party, Franky and I had a bit of a disagreement. 

‘He got a bit upset and he didn’t drop it. Before it got any more heated, I removed myself and went to stay in a different room.

‘I didn’t hear from him all night. It was weird.

‘I definitely don’t think Franky is good with his emotions. I think he can take things quite personally.’

Later she was seen chatting to her fellow co-stars ahead of a commitment ceremony, telling them: ‘I don’t know if you can [change people].’

After she was asked by a contestant if she could ‘moved forward’ with the relationship if Franky didn’t change, she said: ‘I’ve got to be guarded because I’ve got two children. They’re really important and that’s that.’

She added: ‘Past relationships haven’t worked for me because ex-boyfriends do not open up and do not show their emotional side to me.’ 

Meanwhile Franky told the camera: ‘My 47-year-life has had some dark patches. I’ve only known her three weeks. 

‘I can’t just say on day one, “This happened and this happened” to explain these situations.’

Franky, who has spent the last 16 years living in Dubai, wed  the mother-of-two Marilyse and the two were sent to Cumbria on holiday. 

Later Marilyse expressed her concerns to her co-stars, telling the group that she felt 'guarded' because of her children

The newlyweds received the news they would be heading to the Lake District and the couple thought their choice of destination was ‘amazing’.

Franky said: ‘I know it’s going to be active, I love the outdoors and I’m going to really go for it.

‘For me it will be a good test of Marilyse’s endurance, both mentally and physically.

‘I’ll give her a head start to the head of every peak and we’ll see how we get on, but obviously I’m the daddy.’
