On Monday night Australia watched Poppy Jennings, 38, leave Married At First Sight because she “missed her kids too much”.
The photographer and mum of two-year-old twin boys was matched with FIFO worker and dad of two teenage girls Luke Eglin, 39, for the reality TV experiment.
From the start, the Wollongong local wrestled with leaving her boys to take part in the experiment. In fact, the storyline dominated most of what we’ve seen of Luke and Poppy’s ‘marriage’.
WATCH: This is how Australia was introduced to Poppy.
Coming into the experiment, Poppy was looking for a “good and dependable man to be a role model to her boys.”
Her ex-husband left her for another woman when the twins were just six weeks old. To add insult to injury, they now live in the area and Poppy regularly runs into them while doing her groceries.
During Sunday’s commitment ceremony, Poppy told the experts the wedding was a “blur” because she was “so stressed out” about leaving her boys behind, but ultimately decided to stay and give her marriage another go.
