Married At First Sight Australia groom Timothy Smith, 51, has branded fellow couple Jayden Eynaud, 26, and Eden Harper, 28, 'fake', amid claims some couples have formed a 'secret pact' to stay on the show for fame.

Timothy- who married Lucinda Light, 43- has spoken out against Jayden and Eden's relationship after he was asked his opinion on their partnership, telling Daily Mail Australia: "Fake. Completely fake. I don't buy it. I didn't buy it from the day I met him. I didn't buy anything about Jayden."

The 51-year-old's shocking confessions continued, with Timothy going on to claim that Jayden is similar to his brother Mitch Eynaud, 28, who had a rocky journey on his series.

Timothy stated: "I think the relationship was fake then and I think it's fake now. I think he's no different than his brother."

This news comes after rumours began flying that some couples had a 'secret pact' to stay on Married At First Sight Australia for as long as possible, despite not having a romantic connection between them.

A source close to production told Daily Mail Australia that Lauren Dunn, 32, and Jonathan McCullough, 33, as well as Lucinda and Timothy, Jayden and Eden, and Tim Calwell, 31, and Sara Mesa, 29, were rumoured to have created one of these 'secret pacts'.

The insider said: "Despite forming a strong bond, Lucinda and Timothy struggled with a lack of physical attraction.

"Lauren and Jono's relationship was similarly tumultuous, with the two barely spending any time together on weekends, Tim and Sara were also constantly at odds."

The source also stated that Jayden and Eden were accused of playing up to the cameras.

Many X, formally known as Twitter, users took to the social media platform to slam the groom.

One person wrote: "Can't stand Collins.. absolutely pathetic. Glad you're out."

Another added: "My heart feels sad for Natalie. I think Collins is a fake a**. He blew cold on her on day 2 and I got bad vibes from him. The poor lass lost her dad 6 weeks prior to coming into this and apparently her mum was battling cancer. She wasn't ready for this."

With a third stating: "Collins gives off such fake vibes."
