F1 fans were left baffled after David Croft went off on a two-minute-long tangent about Married at First Sight during the opening session of pre-season testing in Bahrain. The Sky Sports commentator said he believes the reality TV series was the “greatest show on the planet”.
Crofty also revealed he was “taking tips” from the show to use in his own relationship, having recently got engaged to partner Laure Bradley. Fellow F1 pundits including Rachel Brooks also expressed their interest in the show while they were interviewing Alpine Academy star Jack Doohan.
Sensing the danger, Croft quickly begged his colleagues not to reveal details about upcoming episodes. The exchange was quickly picked up by social media who were left shocked at the strange “crossover”.

However, some fans of the show were concerned that Croft could be about to reveal spoilers. The show airs almost daily in the UK making it difficult for those following the series to always stay up to date.
