At one point, Karl fired up in defense of Pilates instructor Coco and told Sam: ‘Is it any wonder you can’t find a partner when you judge them within two minutes?!’

‘I’m a little bit angry about all of this… They matched Sam up with Coco, who I think is an out and out personality… I think she’s fantastic!’

He added as he introduced Sam: ‘Sam her bloke, clearly doesn’t think so and well I’ve got a problem with him… he joins us now, morning Sam.’

Karl went on to say that he wasn’t ‘happy’ with Sam.   

‘What’s your problem with Coco?’ Karl began.

‘There’s no real problem with her, when I first met her she was very out there and very extra and it just sort of caught me off guard,’ Sam began.

Sam went on to say once again that Coco wasn’t his ‘cup of tea’ and that he ‘wishes he dropped his guard down earlier’ when Karl interrupted him and took a dig.  

‘Is it any wonder you can’t find a partner when you judge them within two minutes?!’ Karl said. 

‘Oh, not necessarily…’ Sam said, before Karl interjected, saying: ‘It’s a problem for you though, isn’t it?’

Sam took it well and tried to laugh it all off. 

‘Listen to Karlos… He’s having a go at me and I love it,’ Sam said, before saying that Cooc simply ‘caught him off guard.’

Karl backed down and then told Sam that he and Coco are his ‘favourite couple to watch’ and thanked him for going on the show.

Coco said while she understood that it wasn’t going to be a completely perfect match, she believed in ‘vibes at first sight’.

While exchanging vows, Coco joked that she ‘should have just written out WAP’, referencing Cardi B’s raunchy hit.

But despite leaving Sam, 32, dumbfounded, Coco said she was happy with how the wedding ceremony went. 

Although the couple appeared to hit it off when they met at the altar, Coco’s over-the-top personality ultimately proved too much for Sam.

‘I can tell she’s going to be very loud, you know she’s a little bit different to what I’m used to. I’m a little bit thrown by her,’ he told producers.

‘What I like about her is that she seems to be very easygoing and has a personality,’ he continued. 

Off camera, a producer asked why he was feeling ‘out of his comfort zone’, to which he said: ‘Do you want me to be brutally honest?’

‘I don’t want to look like an a**hole,’ Sam said, changing the tone of the conversation.

‘I’ve just met her. She might be a really lovely person, but she’s definitely f**king extra and out there. She’s not my cup of tea,’ he continued.

'I've just met her. She might be a really lovely person, but she's definitely f**king extra and out there. She's not my cup of tea,' Sam said
