Married At First Sight UK is finally upon us, and is primed to fill the void that Love Island left in our hearts a week ago.
And, after the chaos that MAFS Australia injected into our lives, it’s safe to say we’re ready for the drama a little closer to home.
This brand new series will follow eight couples, matched by dating experts, as they meet for the very first time at the altar.
While their marriages aren’t quite legally binding, the pairs will make a lifelong commitment at a luxury ceremony, surrounded by guests and overseen by a wedding celebrant.
After committing to love and stay faithful to someone they’ve never lied eyes on, their bond will be put to the test on a swanky honeymoon and a stint in a new home together, with cameras following them every step of the way.
Here’s everything you need to know about your new TV obsession…
