If you thought Married At First Sight UK star Alexis Economou looked familiar, the reason may be because of a previous TV appearance she made several years ago, when she competed on Britain’s Got Talent as part of a Golden Buzzer act.

In the new series of MAFS UK on E4, Alexis hasn’t had an easy ride, after initially being partnered up to her hubby Jordon Mundell.

The pair failed to connect on their honeymoon, which was made worse when Jordon explained that his usual type is blondes, devastating Alexis.

While Alexis and Jordon left the process during the first commitment ceremony – where it was revealed that Jordon and Megan Wolfe shared a secret kiss behind their partners’ backs – Alexis ended up coming back, after forging a connection with Anthony Poole.

At first it seemed as though Alexis and Ant might hit it off due to their sexual chemistry and flirty banter, although as time has gone on, their bond doesn’t seem as strong underneath the surface.

Seven years ago, model Alexis wasn’t trying to find love on TV, but was instead on a mission for stardom on Britain’s Got Talent.

At 21 years old, she auditioned for the show as part of the girl group REAformed, alongside Renetta Eagle and Ebony Cantwell.

The band performed an upbeat rendition of The Kiki Dee Band’s 1974 song I’ve Got The Music In Me, revving up the audience as they cheered and applauded the singers.

Alexis and her bandmates became emotional on stage as their performance came to an end, wiping away their tears as the judges delivered their feedback.

After they received yeses from Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden, it was Alesha Dixon’s turn.

Much to the band, other judges’ and audience’s absolute shock, Alesha – who Alexis met when she was 15 – pressed the Golden Buzzer button.

Alesha walked onto the stage to give the trio a big hug, telling them: ‘I will support you the whole way.’

As the judge returned to her seat, she said: ‘Well I started out in girl group and I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Mis-Teeq, so that’s what I saw when I saw in those girls. And that’s why I want to support you the whole way.’

At the time, Alesha said that she believed REAformed were the ‘best girl group’ that the judges had ‘seen on the show so far’.

Despite the potential Alesha saw on the girl group, they ended up being eliminated in the third live semi-final of the show.

Whether or not we’ll see Alexis show off her vocal talent on MAFS UK remains to be seen.

Married At First Sight UK returns on Monday at 9pm on E4 and is available to watch on All 4.
