‘I don’t think we need to go down the path of Celebrity MAFS. I think we just keep 2023 with essentially the same ingredients: Singles looking for love trying their best to fall in love.’ 

John added that once the show is over he doesn’t keep in touch with them but enjoys watching them ‘shine post-show’.

It comes after Channel Nine star Richard Wilkins, 68, claimed he was offered ‘a lot of zeros’ to star in a celebrity version of the show.

‘[Former Nine CEO] David Gyngell once said to me, I’ll give you – I won’t mention the amount of money but a lot of zeros – if you do Celebrity Married at First Sight,’ Wilkins said on Tuesday’s Fitzy & Wippa morning show last month.

While Richard didn’t rule out an appearance on the show, he did tell hosts Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald and Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli he had no desire to appear on SAS, Survivor or Love Island.
