“She comes across exactly as she is… a down to earth, genuine person. Wherever we go people keep stopping us to say ‘oh you are off MAFS.’

“I supported her decision to go on the show because she was stuck in a bit of a rut and needed a new direction in life and she also wanted a proper serious relationship.

"It was definitely the right decision for her.”

And while things have been going smoothly for the loved up couple since they became Mr and Mrs they made the headlines last night after it was reported that Luke had been axed from the show after he was involved in a punch up with another bridegroom.

Jay (32) who lives in Accrington, said that while she could comment on any element of the show or what has happened, she was stunned at the positive feedback she had received from people.

Born with the lower part of her left arm missing, Jay, who was a regular at Burnley’s former Posh nightclub back in the day, said she wanted to present a positive image to the world and show young women they did not need to look a certain way to ‘fit in.’

Jay added: “I have received so many positive messages and feedback, nothing negative at all, which is fantastic.

“I can’t comment on anything that has happened in the show, though, or whether or not me and Luke are still together, people will have to keep watching to see what happens.”
