It was about 8.51pm on Tuesday night when Ross and John’s phones started pinging away.

Text messages, emails, Twitter… the notifications were pouring in.

The person who said it was Monica, of one of the contestant’s, Sarah, who had in fact recently hough magandie’d her new husband who she had only recently met.

(To prove it, they posted a photo at the scene of the hough magandie on Instagram).

“I love that word, I use it a lot!”
