When you tell the tale of how you met your spouse, it’s always nice to have an interesting story.
Certainly saying: ‘Well, we met on Married At First Sight’ takes the cake – topping all other potential meet-cutes.
If you like the sound of that, are single and looking for love, and would consider yourself open-minded – then perhaps applying for the UK series is worth considering.
Here, we’ll explain how (and when) to apply, plus what we know about the application process.
How can you apply to be on Married At First Sight UK?
With series six of MAFS UK currently airing, it might be a while before producers are looking for series seven’s stars.
Back in February 2021, MAFS producers posted a call out for singletons to take part in the current series on Instagram.
You’ll need to be aged 18 or over, and prepared to marry the person the show’s experts match you with – whether it’s true love (or lust) at first sight or not.
Surprisingly, hundreds of people are keen to be part of the experiment – even though few scientifically-matched couples survive it.
For series six, producers CPL wrote on their website that more than 1,500 people applied.
They said: ‘Chosen from an initial pool of over 1500 applicants, individuals each seeking long-term love have been carefully assessed by a panel of experts in the fields of psychology, social & evolutionary anthropology and theology.
‘Once matched by the experts the highly compatible couples will prepare to enter into a legally-binding marriage with a complete stranger – meeting for the very first time at their own wedding.’
You don’t have to be a reality TV star already – but Nikita and Morag from the current series have popped up on screens a few times before.
When and where can you watch Married At First Sight UK?
Series six is currently airing from Monday to Thursday at 9pm on E4.
If you miss an episode, you can catch up with the latest episodes on All4, where you can also watch the first five seasons.
Better still: series four, five and six of Married At First Sight Australia is also available on All4 now.
May as well binge-watch the lot. After all, it’s good to know what you’re signing up for…
