In an explosive final episode of Seven Year Switch, the four troubled couples were forced into making a decision on the future of their relationship’s.
Having spent the last two weeks apart on a remote island in Thailand, married couple Michelle and George were supposed to return to the U.K ready to make changes and sacrifices for the benefit of their relationship.
Shame George was still behaving like an utter arse…
You are an arse.

Flash back to the Problem
The basis of Michelle and George’s relationship problems stemmed from George’s “out-dated” and “chauvinistic” views.
G-man openly admitted to never helping with house chores, confessing that he didn’t do “women things” like “the ironing”.
Michelle’s thoughts on her extinct caveman husband were very clear…
The Seven Year Switch relationship experts told the pair that they had a “huge task” ahead of them, adding they had been “destroying their relationship” with “anger”.
George did a brilliant job at making out that he was a changed man, however, saying that he now possessed all the “tools” to deal with their relationship issues.
AKA tools to stop him from calling his girlfriend a “twat” – a muzzle?
George said: “With me, I know what I’ve got to do, and I know how I’m going to do it.”
George even said that he was willing to help with the house chores, although Michelle sat in silence, shocked at the kind and helpful words suddenly spewing from her husband’s mouth.
Same Old George
Having returned to their home in the U.K, cracks immediately started to surface in Michelle and George’s relationship.
Michelle rang her sister to tell her about her husband’s distinct “lack of change”.
George had been taken to hospital with a suspected blood clot and advised to rest at home while on medication, although he used the incident as an excuse to revert back to his old ways.
Feet up, lounging on the sofa, clicking his fingers at his wife…
What came next, however, took even the biggest George-haters by surprise.
G-man attempted to defend his actions, with his true colours once again on display.
He slammed his wife for not taking care of him, making out that Michelle’s choice to prioritise their child, Leo, and to go to work, was somehow unfair to him.
George added: “It was my moment of need and my wife wasn’t there to give me that.”
The pair bickered as Michelle fired back at her hubby, attacking his “vile attitude” towards her.
As the big decision loomed, Twitter roared as the couple announced that they were splitting up.
You’re filing for divorce ?! Michelle should be , you poor excuse for a human being let alone a husband.. You go Michelle and grow and be happy!! ❤️ #sevenyearswitch

It looked during that interview that George actually made Michelles skin crawl. Sad it ended in divorce but she is so much better off and so is the son. That would be a toxic house for all of them. #sevenyearswitch

Of course, it was George who attempted to have the final word, although we all know who the real winner is here…
