Fans have blasted Married at First Sight star Shawniece Jackson after she gave husband Jephte Pierre a lap dance at their wedding.

The pair had only known each other for a matter of hours before Shawniece made a “special request” to the DJ at their reception so she could give him a lap dance.

Jephte — who revealed on the season premiere that he has been shy since he was a kid — is then seen sitting nervous and wide-eyed as Shawniece gyrates in front of him.

He says: “Normally I’d be cool with a lap dance, but my mother was right there!”

Fans took to the show’s Facebook page to comment about the moment. One said: “Why the lap dance at the wedding in front of his family? Girl, you don’t even know who you’re dealing with yet!”

The moment comes after Jephte’s mom Laura — who last week revealed she wasn’t keen on him marrying a total stranger — interrupted the couple’s wedding ceremony to say her piece.

Watch our exclusive clip from this week’s Married at First Sight episode below, as she brings proceedings to a halt by standing up and saying: ““Everybody, wait…this is my son!”

Last week she told Jephte getting married to a total stranger was not a “game”. She added: “You need a lot of prayer!” Jephte previously revealed he is unsure how his marriage can work unless he has the support of his mom.

Married at First Sight airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Lifetime.
