Married At First Sight bride Booka Nile was pictured getting a Covid-19 test in Sydney earlier this month.  

The 31-year-old could be seen being attended to by a masked up nurse in a drive-through clinic. 

The rocker got the test done upon her arrival into Sydney from her hometown of Perth, with the test believed to have been done ahead of filming the MAFS reunion.

The test was ordered by producers for all contestants ahead of filming the reunion.

The blonde beauty was seen in the back of a chauffeur driven car, getting swabs taken.

Participants were regularly required to get tested for COVID-19 while filming the Channel 9 dating show.

She rolled down her window to let the nurse probe her nasal passage with the swab.

The stunner rocked a bold red lip and a chic hat, and made sure to keep calm during the test. 

At one point, she couldn’t help but make an uncomfortable face as the swabbed was pulled out.

Booka was likely driven back to her accommodation where she would be self-isolating until she received a negative result.

All participants of Married At First Sight had to take part in regular COVID testing.

Relationship expert John Aiken recently told Pop Sugar the show incorporated government’s regulations and had a COVID manager available during filming.

He said that restrictions were taken seriously, participants were tested twice a week and there were regular temperature checks on set.

‘It really changed the way we were on set, and we had to adjust the format as well and bring in new concepts like a Couples Retreat.

‘We have communications, we have intimacy but you couldn’t do things like meet the parents or have homestays,’ he added. 

Musician Booka tied the knot with electrician Brett Helling this week on Married At First Sight.

The chemistry between the pair was palpable at the wedding ceremony and continued on into their honeymoon on the NSW South Coast where they enjoyed a steamy bath together.

Booka admitted to producers she already felt ‘weirdly’ comfortable with Brett, despite having only just met him.

‘I have a good gut feeling with Brett, and I think that that means something. And I just feel very safe with him, which is great,’ she said.

‘And in this experiment, you’ve got to fast-track things a little bit, so I guess just knowing that we do get along really well helps me to let down some of those walls that I would normally have up.’

However, there are already rumours that the pair have split since filming the show late last year. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Booka and Channel Nine for comment, in relation to this story.
