Married At First Sight UK is set to welcome a fresh batch of singles as they search for love and a happy-ever-after with perfect strangers.
Following the success of its Australian counterpart, this brand new series will follow eight couples as they meet for the very first time at the altar.
Rather than legal marriages, the couples will make a lifelong commitment to one another at a glamorous ceremony, overseen by a wedding celebrant, that includes guests, bridal gowns, dancing, speeches and cake.
After the ceremony and celebrations are over, true love is well and truly put to the test, as they embark on a luxurious honeymoon, before moving in with each other and their fellow couples
Relationships will be put under the microscope, by fellow brides and grooms at weekly dinner parties – as well as by the experts, at recurring commitment ceremonies, where couples choose whether they want to stay in or leave the process.
Here are the 16 singles who have signed up to the E4 show in a bid to find the one.
