Johnny Balbuziente and Kerry Knight are one of the few success stories from Married at First Sight, but it turns out their love story didn’t start off so smooth.

The season 8 stars of the reality show revealed in an Instagram post that their wedding night almost ended in disaster.

When asked what their first night together was like, the duo shared an untold moment.

“I nearly killed Kerry, by accident,” Johnny said.


The 30-year-old explained that after their fairytale wedding, he was “so nervous” about the sleeping situation.

“I was like, Kerry, what are your thoughts on sleeping in the same bed? Do we need a pillow fortress or do you want me to sleep on the couch?,” he told his followers.

“I didn’t know what to do with my hands and I leaned against this big cupboard that was next to us, and this thing hit the wall and nearly fell back onto Kerry.”

The reality stars laughed about the incident, adding that “shit was falling over us”.

Johnny and Kerry also revealed in the IGTV video details about their first “proper” kiss after the wedding.

“I asked you, and you were like ‘did you just ask me for a kiss?’,” Johnny said.

Kerry added with a shrug: “I don’t remember that.”

The couple have gone from strength to strength since appearing on TV earlier this year.

They continue to update their fans on social media about their relationship, revealing last month that their two families met up for the first time.

“Mum and Dad Knight flew up to Brissy this week to meet the Balbuzientes!,” she wrote on Instagram.

“Lots of laughs and so much fun! How lucky we are.”
