The first episode of the Married at First Sight reunion aired on Sunday night and, as promised, it was an explosive evening of TV.

Three people were at the centre of all the drama: Nasser Sultan, Cyrell Paule, and Jessika Power.

The group confronted Nasser about the comments he had made about them all since leaving the show in 2018, many of which had hurt them personally.

This culminated in a large argument across the dinner table, with the group accusing him of being a “troll”, and eventually saw Nasser storm out of the party.

Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle on Monday, Nasser wanted to make a few things clear, including the fact he doesn't believe he's a troll, and was simply making comments about the cast.

He also claims he "never" commented on Tracey Jewel's pregnancy, something she said really hurt her.

"I woke up this morning to, like 500 hate messages, which is fine, that's just normal, that's OK, but there's one very important issue," he tells us.

"One, is that I never, ever, ever said anything about Tracey's pregnancy, I didn't even know she was pregnant and I didn't really care, but I never ever said that and she accused me of that last night, because that obviously touched a note between the women.

"Second thing is, I do not troll people. I comment," he continues. "There's a massive difference between trolling and commenting. When the story's out and I make a comment, that's just a comment and that's my opinion. If I go into your DMs... and send you a private message, that's trolling, people need to understand that.

"Three, last night was a gang attack. It wasn't one-on-one, I knew I was going to get heat for sure, no problem and I even said that to them. I said that to [Michael Brunelli], Martha's freaking boyfriend, because he had a go at me when they came in and they didn't show that.

"I said to him, 'Mate, no worries, we'll talk!' He goes, 'Yeah, yeah, we will talk.' But to have a gang mentality attacking me, when they trolled and commented on each other's Instagrams, I found that absurd, I found that stupid, I found that unacceptable and that's the reason I walked out.

"If it was one-on-one and they wanted to confront me and say, 'Listen, we need to talk,' that's fine, I would have explained the difference between trolling and commenting, but when you get a gang mentality attacking you, to me, it's very weak for doing it."

Nasser explains he "absolutely" stands by all the comments he's made about the cast previously, and shared another moment that wasn't seen on screen involving Cyrell.

During the party, Cyrell accused Nasser of saying her relationship and pregnancy were all for publicity, something she also believed Jessika had been saying.

"Cyrell is completely nuts! Passionate? Yes, but she's completely nuts," Nasser says.

"They showed that Cyrell threw wine in Jessika's face, but she actually picked up a jug and was going to do it, and they stopped her. And then the production came in, just before I was leaving, they had to stop filming because she was out of control and she was stood over me with a glass in her hand. And I think the producers thought, 'Hang on a minute, she might whack me in the face,' so the producers said, 'OK, Cyrell that's enough."

When asked if the producers believed the incident could have taken a more dangerous turn, he responded, "Yep, 100 per cent, 100 per cent!"

While he walked out of the show on Sunday night, Nasser does make an appearance on Monday night's episode with the experts, revealing he gets lectured by them for his behaviour.

"I went back because I wanted to finish the show and the people said, 'You've got to come back or it's going to look silly, because you ran away,'" he says. "I get attacked tonight by the experts for about ten minutes, they say, 'We can't believe it, you're the one who brought everyone together, and now you're trolling and bullying,' and then it starts. Martha f***ing opens her mouth again and then Cyrell bang, bang, bang attacks her, 'You're a b***h, you said this about me, you said that about me!'"

He also adds there's an incident that occurs between Ines Basic and Mike Gunner, adding, "If they show that, it'll be class."

"Huge nights of TV, and I tell you what, if Australia doesn't know who the f**k I am by now, they're living under a rock, whether you love or hate me or whatever. I think we've split the nation and people will make their own decisions and say, 'Yes, I'm with him,' or, 'No, I'm not with him.'

"But the most important part is, I did not berate [Tracey's] baby, I didn't even know she was pregnant... I would never do that to anyone," he concludes.
