Married At First Sight UK star Jess Potter’s secret heartache after the tragic death of close friend | The Sun

MARRIED At First Sight UK star Jess Potter has shared her secret heartache after the tragic death of a close friend.

The reality TV star – who is set to appear on the upcoming series of the show this year – took to her Instagram stories to mourn her pal.


Jess, 31, who is due to take part in the 2022 series of the Channel 4 show, posted a snap of a grave covered in colourful flowers.

Photographing the grave of Kali Mena Rolfe, she showed her pal's photograph and statues had been left in her memory.

The teen was tragically pronounced dead at the scene after a fatal collision on the A47 in Cambridgeshire last May.

A show representative confirmed to The Sun Online that Jess and Kali had been "close friends" and were like family to one another.

Days after the horrifying crash, her family paid tribute with a statement, calling her a "loving and thoughtful" person.

"Kali was adored and loved by family, friends and colleagues," the statement read. "There are no words, life will simply never be the same, our hearts are broken."

Dental hygienist Jess, who lives in Cambridge, previously revealed how she had been left with a black eye after she was HEADBUTTED in a nasty Ibiza clash.

She could be seen pouting for the camera in the selfie taken by her home, showing off her red and green coloured bruising.

Wearing just a multi-coloured bikini top, she appeared to go make-up free as she told fans she had a "black eye and fat lip".

"Not going to lie, kinda warming to the black eye and fat lip," she jokingly captioned the post, adding: "Edgy."

When she was asked who she was "fighting with", Jess responded: "Some man headbutted me in Ibiza."

The photo was taken just weeks before Jess was revealed to be taking part in the upcoming series of Married At First Sight UK.
