The moment you didn’t see! What REALLY happened behind the scenes when MAFS’ Jessika Power had a fight with Daniel Webb on Talking Married
Ben Fordham has revealed the real reason behind Jessika Power’s explosive fight with Daniel Webb.
During Monday’s episode of Talking Married, the cheating couple clashed on-air during a rather tense interview.
And on Tuesday, Ben told News.com.au that a silly joke about their Married at First Sight co-star Nic Jovanovic had triggered the argument.

‘What the joke was… they were a little bit sick. Jess cracked a joke saying she got her sniffle from Mick, and then Dan said, “Are you sure it wasn’t Nic?”‘ Ben recalled.
‘She just turned around and gave him daggers and said, “I don’t appreciate that. Why did you say that?”
‘Then she started throwing F-bombs at him and he started throwing them back and it went for about 30 seconds and we were a minute away from going live.’

Ben, a MAFS ‘super fan’ who co-hosted Talking Married on Monday, added that Jessika even came close to walking off the set and threatened to cancel the interview altogether.
He explained that 9Life decided not to air the pre-interview fight because it would have taken too long to edit due to the couple’s foul language.
Jessika and Dan managed to compose themselves but nonetheless looked very tense at the start of the live interview, something Ben remarked on.

During their televised chat, Ben directly asked Dan, who was speaking via video link from the Gold Coast, whether he ‘wants out’ of his relationship with Jessika.
‘I definitely wouldn’t say I “want out” but in saying that… there’s a lot of trust issues for me,’ the car sales broker replied.
Fellow MAFS star Elizabeth Sobinoff, who was in the Talking Married studio on Monday night, also confirmed there was drama going on behind the scenes.
Damning evidence: Dan was forced to watch footage of his girlfriend Jessika making advances towards Nic (left)
‘I was there,’ she told Nova 96.9’s Fitzy & Wippa on Tuesday.
When asked whether there was lots of ‘swearing’ between Jessika and Dan, she replied: ‘Umm, maybe… I hope they can work it out.’
During Monday night’s MAFS finale, Dan was left humiliated after watching footage of Jessika make advances towards Nic Jovanovic earlier in the season.
Jessika bizarrely denied she had ever propositioned Nic even after the whole group had watched the damning evidence.
Rage: After watching the eyebrow-raising video of Jessika and Nic, Dan said: ‘…I honestly feel like I’ve just been played. Yeah, I’m hurting right now, looking at that’
Dan was understandably furious with Jessika and said he had witnessed her flirting with Nic firsthand.
‘I can’t deny what I saw there. There was an instance there where I saw her sitting on the couch, the way she was talking to Nic, and it just felt like that I was on the couch talking to her, that’s how she talks to me,’ he said.
‘That’s probably the biggest thing, to be honest with you. I honestly feel like I’ve just been played. Yeah, I’m hurting right now, looking at that.’
