During Thursday’s episode of MAFS – which starts at the early time of 7:30pm – Mitchell surprised his wife with a steamy bubble bath to celebrate their honeymoon.
Speaking to cameras, Ella admitted that while she was happy that Mitch respected her three-date rule, she was annoyed that he didn’t try to ‘jump her bones’ earlier.
‘I love that he respects that, like that makes me look at him and know he’s a good guy,’ she told producers on camera.

Mitch then moved over to the other side of the bath and began kissing Ella non-stop.
‘Hormones were through the roof. My face was getting very hot, it was actually the way it felt at the wedding when I saw him for the first time.’ Ella said to producers.
‘Let’s call it there I reckon,’ he laughed before getting up and walking to the shower.

Mitch decided to heat things up by rubbing lotion onto Ella’s bare bottom while tanning outdoors.
‘The horny-ness is off the radar,’ Ella admitted while speaking to producers.

Things took a turn for the worse when it was Holly’s turn to ask the question: ‘Do you feel any sexual chemistry with me?’
Taking a minute to think of his response, Andrew replied: ‘Holly, I enjoy sex. I enjoy sex all the time. I enjoy it in random places, at random times.
‘I know I have the right equipment and I feel like I know how to use that. But I feel like when we were intimate you weren’t there.’
‘You were not physically there,’ he added.
Oh no! Things took a turn for the worse when Holly’s turned to ask the question, ‘Do you feel any sexual chemistry with me?’
‘I didn’t feel intimacy. I didn’t feel connected to you, so it wasn’t enjoyable for me. If I am being completely honest with you.’
‘I’ve had one-night stands where the partner was more into me than you were into me.’
‘If I just wanted to get off I could just do that by myself,’ he later said.
A heartbroken Holly told Andrew his expectations of her sexually made her not want to be intimate with him.
