TVIt will be your (new) husband… George Roberts (40), candidate in the British version of ‘Married Blind’, is accused of assault, but the program makers were allowed to tie the knot. Three exes can’t believe their eyes. “I’m shocked that someone like that gets a podium.”
Three former partners filed a complaint against George. All three call him obsessive, manipulative and abusive. They cannot understand that such a person is allowed to participate in ‘Blind Married’. They therefore sounded the alarm when they saw their ex appear in the trailer. Although the makers of the program completely ignored them. “I’m shocked that someone like that gets a stage on a TV show. I notified the creators and told them I was filing a complaint with the police. They asked for additional information, but after that I didn’t hear from them again,” said one of the women.
Same story with a second wife: “I contacted ‘Blind Married’ and all the producers to tell them that he is a known emotional and mental abuser.”
The third witness also tried to do everything he could to prevent his participation. “I sent everything I had to the creators. They claimed they would investigate.”
The production and broadcaster of the TV show defend itself by saying that every participant is thoroughly investigated and that all allegations of this nature are taken seriously. “We work closely with our production partners to ensure that all ‘Blind Married’ contestants are subject to a rigorous background and psychological check. A police check is also part of this,” says a spokesperson for the channel. Another source of the channel claims that they were only informed of the allegations after the recordings.
Meanwhile, the new season of the British ‘Blind Married’ to the controversial Roberts is already halfway through. The man married April, but the fairy tale was reportedly too good to be true. April hinted on Instagram that their relationship was coming to an end. “The traumas that came up through the show made me look at it differently. Since then I’ve also been seeing a therapist and I’m not ashamed of that,” she wrote.

George himself did not respond directly to the allegations, but used his spokesperson. “As the father of four daughters, he finds the allegations deeply disturbing and does not condone abuse at all. He doesn’t act that way either. The allegations have never been brought to the attention because they are simply not true.”
