Channel 4 has confirmed that Nikita has been dropped from the new series of Married At First Sight UK following a heated confrontation.
The Geordie girl got hitched to Ant at the start of experiment but the cracks were already showing on their honeymoon as they got into a blazing row in Mexico.
Nikita turned the air blue in a rant at her new husband, branding him a "little freak" and a "divvy c***", although the pair did manage to reconcile before they returned to the UK.
In tonight's episode, the couples will meet for their first group dinner party - and in a trailer, Nikita is seen being restrained while shouting furiously at her co-stars.
"Nikita just lost it and screamed at everyone around the table," a source told the Daily Mail.
"'It was over an argument she started, ranting her co-stars were only doing the show for fame – when most of them felt that's exactly why she had signed up.
"The situation turned really ugly, which was why security had to get involved. Bosses were left with no choice but to remove her from the show."
Confirming that Nikita had been asked to leave the show, a C4 spokesman said: "The wellbeing of cast and crew is our utmost priority at all times throughout production and beyond.
"During filming, a situation escalated off camera and Nikita displayed a level of aggression that was unacceptable and breached our agreed code of conduct on behaviour.
"As a result, she was asked to leave the experiment. All involved have been offered support and Nikita has since apologised and resolved the situation with those involved."
Nikita's expulsion is thought to mean that her new partner Ant was also forced to leave the show.
Married At First Sight UK continues tonight at 9pm on E4.
