Married at First Sight is adored by reality TV fans all over. Whether it’s the Australian version or the home-grown format in the UK, fans can’t get enough and here’s everything we know about the upcoming new series…

Following on from the last series, several new features will be made from 2021’s show. the new series will feature a male couple and, for the first time, a female couple will also exchange their vows.

The bold social experiment where single people, matched by experts, marry total strangers, who they meet for the very first time on their wedding day.

Channel 4 bosses also opened up about what the new series would look like, and they’ve made some positive changes! “The new series will once again follow a fresh batch of singles, whose search for love and a happy-ever-after will lead them to saying ‘I do’ to a complete stranger, whom they’ll meet for the first time on their wedding day.”

They then added that the episodes have been extended: “With a longer run (30 episodes), the forthcoming series promises to be bigger and more dramatic than ever before!”

Fans of the show can also look forward to seeing the three relationship experts, Mel Schilling, Paul C. Brunson and Charlene Douglas, return to give their tips and advice to the newlyweds.

Last year, MAFS UK welcomed its first same-sex couple in Matthew and Daniel, who won over the hearts of the nation during their time in the experiment. Since appearing on the series, their relationship has gone from strength to strength.

MAFS’s Relationship Expert, Mel Schilling said: “We take the matchmaking process extremely seriously and when it comes to finding and matching our couples, it’s so important to us that we find matches that are authentic and reflect the diversity of the society we live in.

“That’s why I’m so thrilled that this year we’re welcoming not just one, but two same sex couples into the fold.

The hit reality series will return to E4 later this year, MarkMeets can reveal.

“I’m really looking forward to you meeting them – they are firecrackers and sure to keep you entertained.”

Last year’s same-sex couple, Matt and Dan previously said: “It was such an amazing experience to appear on the latest series of MAFS UK and to be representing the LGBTQ+ community on a dating show with this sort of impact.

“We went in not knowing what to expect from the process, other than we’d be marrying a stranger. The experts truly worked their magic.

“We fell in love thanks to the process, and are still together now, happier than ever before!”

Channel 4 Factual Entertainment Commissioning Editor, Lee McMurray, commented: “I am delighted to be making MAFS history by featuring two same-sex couples in a show that is committed to and celebrates diversity.

“They are part of fantastic new cast whom I’m sure viewers will fall in love with.”
