Married at First Sight rose to become the top Reality show of the night, with 1.08m viewers last night -pipping MasterChef by just 1,000 viewers.
On Q & A observers were intrigued by Bronwyn Bishop’s direct criticism of panelist and Human Rights Commissioner Gillian Triggs. “It has made you a very political figure. Therefore, you are subject to criticism,” she said of her report into children in detention.
