Brits in hysterics after Married At First Sight Australia’s Jessika Power reveals her UK bucket list

Former Married at First Sight Australia contestant, Jessika Power, has recently moved to Manchester with her new podcast host boyfriend – and she’s certainly come prepared with a hilarious bucket list of activities to do during her time in the UK.

Taking to Instagram, the 29-year-old shared her ambitious plans with her 350,000 followers. “Hey guys! As you know I’ve moved to Manchester and as soon as I’m finished isolating I can’t wait to see anything and explore,” she wrote before launching into her tongue in cheek list.

“Harry Potter world, Tea at Buckingham Palace, Coach trip to Birmingham Primark, Weather Spoons cocktails with the girls, Go Scotland and drink an Iron Bru, Go Ireland and drink a Lager, Go Wales and _____?”

While it appears Jessika is yet to decide what to get up to in Wales, some have suggested that it could be a reference to a potential appearance on the upcoming series of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.

The list continued: “Romantic weekend in Bradford, Make friends with ‘chavs’, G.A.Y and a hun brunch in London, Watch soccer in Manchester, Visit Greggs for lunch, Meet the Loose Women and Loraine [sic], Learn the sexy ‘scouser’ accent, Have a beach day in Black Pool [sic] and Shopping spree in B&M Bargains.”

Inevitably, Brits were left in stitches. After all, swapping the golden sands in Australia for a beach day in Blackpool is quite a drastic change. “Gonna be so disappointed coming from Australia, with some of the nicest beaches in the world, to Blackpool”, one commented.

While others hilariously highlighted that Bradford isn’t exactly Paris, “Wouldn’t be going on a romantic break to Bradford.”

Another jokingly suggested to “have a picnic in Manchester Piccadilly Gardens. Beautiful spot full of lovely people”, to which her Mancunian boyfriend advised against.

The Married at First Sight star told The Herald Sun, “I have a lot set up over there (UK) already,”

“I have a TV show, a new one, I have appearances, I have invitations to parties, I have some really exciting stuff organised.”

“I feel I have done as much as I can do here in Australia.. but with MAFS screening in the UK and my name sort of blowing up over there I am really excited to see what opportunities might be there,” she added.
