Whitney Hughes from MAFS UK 2022 joined the show seeking expertise from the love gurus so that she could settle down. Described as “fun, confident, and se*y”, Whitney isn’t “short of male attention” but hasn’t found someone who “can tick all the boxes”.
However, Whitney has “such high expectations for her potential partner and worries she’ll never actually let anyone in.” She worries that she will end up single at 50, with only her dogs for company. Whitney has dated men on a superficial level but has never found anyone “good enough” to take home to her family.
Moreover, Whitney came looking for a man that she could take home to meet her family members.
MAFS UK 2022: Are Whitney Hughes And Duka Cav Still Together?
Duka Cav and Whitney Hughes were one of the first couples from Married At First Sight UK 2022 to walk down the aisle. Chanita and Jordan hit it off immediately and their bond showed promise. But the situation doesn’t seem the same for Duka and Whitney.
Since their first day together, Whitney has made it clear that she was less than impressed with Duka, but things really came to a head when she lost her wedding ring while on safari in South Africa and rejected his offer to get a replacement.
Furthermore, Whitney’s reaction to Duka has already got viewers of the show talking. Whitney commented, “I wanted a man who’s a man that’s towering over me, like massive, like a brick house. Compared to a house, maybe he’s a shed. But she added: “But there are no patches in his beard, so I’m not going to knock his beard.”
Whitney continued, “I’m in between maybe saying the vows, or maybe just like run. This is the worst thing I’ve ever done in my f**king life.” She even calls Duka “fake,” certainly not a good look for their relationship.
Earlier, she had overheard a conversation in which Duka predicted that other girls on the outside would pay him a lot of attention. Whitney eventually broke down and fled the commitment ceremony, declaring she was through with the experiment because of her feelings of insecurity and annoyance at his behavior.
Experts Mel Schilling, Paul Carrick Brunson, and Charlene Douglas on the show were eager to learn how the couple was getting along. Touching on how she was feeling, Whitney exclaimed: “He talks every day about ‘When the experiment is done, I am going to get so many girls in my DMs [direct messages].
“So you want me to be here, be genuine, and in a relationship with someone who is here for fame, like what do you want from me?” Whitney adds. “I wanted to find someone who I can legitimately connect with and find myself!”
Paul interrupts, “So why are you not working for it?” To which Whitney replies, “Because I can’t when it is not real on his side. I feel like the trust, we were slowly building trust and I feel like trust has gone back down again.”
Duka also speaks his mind saying, “I apologize for the comments I may have made but at the same time I also know my self-worth, in terms of the past. Because I may not be good enough for you in this process, I am sure I’ll be good enough for someone else.”
“You are twisting your words, I am sitting quietly and I’m not correcting and saying, ‘Oh no actually’,” Whitney slams her husband saying. “It was a lot worse than your portraying it. I am keeping quiet and allowing you to represent yourself well but when it is the other way round your like, ‘Urgh yeah’.”
Whitney claims that she is “closed off to it now” and can’t open up to someone who is ready to find another girl once they are out. She adds that she has guards up because of her past and meeting someone like the one she described she wasn’t going to be vulnerable.
“So I can’t because I am exposing myself up to hurt, I don’t want to do it, I have had enough, I don’t want anymore that is enough,” she added before getting up and walking out of the room.
Duka later explains, “I genuinely believe there has been such a massive miscommunication on both camps with everything. I do want love and I do want a family, I do want to build with someone, it is easier to leave and not deal with the stress.”
“But I am not someone who gives up easily, I have written stay because I want to fight for this, fight for her. I am not perfect I know that but God knows I am trying,” Duka said before holding up his envelope which said “stay”.
Mel asked Whitney: “Would you be prepared to press pause and just spend 24 hours contemplating this?”
Later on, Duka moved into the flat by himself. However, he hoped that reconciliation between him and Whitney would take place. The couple sat down for an honest chat, with Duka quickly becoming tearful and offering his wife an apology. ‘Any bad feelings, anything I’ve said that’s put you on edge, I wholeheartedly apologize. I’ve wanted nothing but the best for you,’ Duka began.
“I’m genuinely sorry,” he confessed before Whitney pulled out a notebook and started to read out everything she’s been bottling up. “I honestly felt like I was being attacked and ostracised by the group,’ she began, in reference to the commitment ceremony the previous night, which saw the two come to blows once again. And the one person who’s spent more time with me than anyone else there didn’t stand up for me and say, hang on, that’s not who she is. You weren’t protecting me.”
The couple makes up with Whitney telling Duka to be himself. He then asks her to move in so that they can work on the foundation of their marriage.
Furthermore, it is unclear if their marriage worked or not. However, fans have predicted that Whitney will likely “steal husband” and end up with Kwame Badu, her fellow cast member.

According to UK.Indeed.com, PA in St. Albans makes an average salary of £28,000 – £38,000 a year.
However, ever since her mother’s death in a road accident, she has also become a road safety campaigner.
Whitney also started a petition after a mother’s death to “make Redbourn road safe!” She writes on the petition, “The road is fairly straight with a couple of sudden bends that aren’t easy to spot at night. There are a few street lights leading up to The Prae Wood Arms, but 95% of Redbourn Road is left in absolute darkness. Poor drainage has also led to flooding over the years and caused multiple serious crashes. Both of these issues paired with no speed cameras to prevent drivers from speeding is a recipe for disaster.”
As of this writing, 5889 have signed the petition.
“I started the petition because growing up, I know that Redbourn Road was an incredibly dangerous road,” Whitney told Herts Live At the time. “It was a speed track and many people lost their lives there.”
She added, “I launched it to get the council to listen and respond before more lives are lost there and there’s only so many times you can hear about another death. There needs to be speed cameras and lighting along the road and I’d also like the council to improve the drainage on the road because people often hydroplane.”
