​Man Cleans Toilet With Woman’s Toothbrush On Married At First Sight

David caught his new ‘wife’ Vernon kissing Goonan, and it was this that led to a massive s***storm – quite literally

Right, buckle up chaps, as this is about to get ALL kinds of ridiculous. A Married At First Sight contestant decided to seek revenge on his new wife after she kissed someone else... by using her toothbrush to clean faecal matter from the toilet.

I wish I was making this up.

In the Aussie version of the show (which, by the way, is much more dramatic than the UK's offering, as you may be able to tell), there are two couples that you need to know about in this instance: David Cannon and Hayley Vernon, and Michael Goonan and Stacey Hampton.

David Cannon and Hayley Vernon.

David caught his new 'wife' Hayley kissing Michael, and it was this that led to a massive s***storm - quite literally.

Furious, David decided to get payback (very, very twisted payback) by using her toothbrush to scrub away some poo from inside the toilet, before rinsing it in the toilet water to make sure the flecks of, ahem, excrement weren't too visible to give the game away.

He even filmed himself doing it, just to add insult to injury, before popping it back in the toothbrush holder.

David confirmed what he did on's Not Here To Make Friends podcast, admitting he had cleaned the toilet with Hayley's toothbrush after he discovered she'd kissed another groom, Michael, during a big night out.

David said on the podcast: "About three days after the cheating scandal happens, I've heard nothing from Hayley and I'm in a really dark place.

"I still had her room key, and that's when I did something really childish.

"I regret it now because I've lowered myself to her level."


David said he often found himself complaining about the mess Hayley made in the toilet bowl - which he felt was 'not very ladylike'.

He said: "I raised it with her like 16 times.

"The bathroom was just armageddon... That's when I grabbed the toothbrush and I did something I shouldn't have, which was to scrub the toilet with her toothbrush and I left it there.

"She used it for five days, then I let one of her friends know and she [Hayley] was told."

At least David did have a quick Google beforehand to see if it would do Hayley any harm, saying: "It's her own poo, it's her own bacteria in her own body so it's not going to hurt her."

It probably goes without saying, but I still wouldn't try this one at home if I were you.

David added: "I'm ashamed of myself."

A promo aired at the end of the last episode, revealing that tonight's dinner party instalment would see all revealed.

The voiceover teased: "One marriage is suddenly and dramatically spiralling out of control.

"David has just discovered that his wife Hayley is out on the town and cosying up to one of the other husbands. David's act of revenge on wife Hayley leaves everyone in disbelief."

The show's experts.

According to the Metro, after David did the dirty deed, production was shut down for two weeks.

Hayley first spoke about what happened about two weeks ago, during a radio interview on Hit FM.

"No one else lashed out like that, and everyone else was under the same stress," she said about her TV husband's act of revenge.

"He did one of the most repulsive things in the show's history, and I'd say that's bordering on abuse.

"I don't really want to revisit it."
