April recently suggested the relationship was over between her and George and told her followers she was in therapy after appearing on the dating show.
A Channel 4 spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘Contributor care and safety is our priority at all times throughout this production and we ensure robust contributor care and safety protocols are in place.
‘Appropriate support is available to contributors before, during and after filming and broadcast, including access to our experts and an independent psychologist.’

It recently came to light that George was able to marry a stranger on television despite three of his exes complaining to police about his alleged abusive behaviour.
Three women who had relationships with George have recently said that they were horrified by his inclusion in the show.
Each of them said that they had independently made a complaint to the police about George, claiming to have been ‘love-bombed’ before the relationship became ‘coercive’.
All three said that they raised concerns with Channel 4 after seeing Mr Roberts in trailers for the show.
They said that they flagged his ‘abusive, ‘obsessive’ and ‘manipulative’ behaviour towards women.

A show source said that they were not aware of allegations against Mr Roberts before he married Ms Banbury on the television show.
It is not clear whether filming for the show, including their wedding, had concluded when the women raised the issue with Channel 4.
‘I’m so shocked to see he has been given a platform on a TV show. I messaged Married at First Sight. I said I reported him to the police,’ one of his ex-girlfriends told The Sun.
‘They asked for additional information which I gave and I never heard anything further.’
A second ex-partner said that they reached out to All4, E4 and Married At First Sight directly, stating that Mr Roberts ‘was a known emotional and mental abuser’.

A third ex said that they were told it would be looked into, after sending the Channel 4 team ‘everything’ they had regarding Mr Roberts’ alleged abuse.
All three women described being ‘love-bombed’ by Mr Roberts, an action that sees people showered in affection before the relationship became ‘coercive and controlling’.
Mr Roberts, a divorced father-of-four, married Ms Banbury on the show before honeymooning in the Caribbean.
At the weekend, Ms Banbury suggested that the relationship was over, describing ‘traumas’ from the experience on Instagram.
‘The traumas that have been brought on from this show have made me re-evaluate things,’ she wrote.
‘I really have and I’m not ashamed to admit, I have been seeing a therapist ever since.’
She told The Sun that her head was ‘spinning’ after hearing about the allegations.
Channel 4 told MailOnline: ‘We work incredibly closely with our production partners to ensure all Married at First Sight UK contributors are subject to rigorous background and psychological checks, including the most detailed police checks a production is able to undertake.
‘Any allegations of this nature are taken extremely seriously by Channel 4.’
A spokesperson for Mr Roberts told The Sun that the television star denies the allegations and finds them ‘deeply upsetting’, adding: ‘[He] does not condone abuse nor behaves in that way.
‘These allegations were never brought to his attention, investigated or taken further by the police for good reason as they are simply not true,’ they added.
