'[Our role is to observe] and it's an experiment, and this has happened within the experiment,' Trisha told Mel and John.
Mel added: 'I think if [Jess and Dan] have made this request and they seem genuine about it, about the relationship – and we're to say, 'No, you're not allowed to do that', then that's us intervening, isn't it?'
During the commitment ceremony, Jess and Dan told the group that they had secretly met and kissed behind their spouses' backs and that they had fallen for each other.
