Christie (39), a former DJ, appeared on Aussie morning show Today Extra on Channel Nine and revealed how her wedding, held aboard a boat in Sydney Harbour, unfolded.

"I definitely didn’t feel any electricity or chemistry physically at all. I didn’t feel it, I'm not going to fake it. I won't fake anything. Not a guy I would go for,' she told the hosts.

'If he was online I would have swiped past him.'

Christie was also violently seasick. She had not been told that the wedding would take place aboard a boat.

"I was actually really sick through the entire wedding - to the point where I had a bucket," she told OK Magazine.

Although she didn't immediately fancy her groom, Christie said he was a "beautiful person" and she has not abandoned the relationship - yet.

"He tried to make me feel very comfortable in a very awkward and difficult situation,' she said.

"I am learning as a human to try and not put as much emphasis on [physical attraction] and that is my struggle through this.  You'll see what happens."

Christie had previously explained that her late 30s had "crept up on" her and children had become an increasingly pressing issue.
