Married at First Sight line up: Meet the brides and grooms as show returns to E4

Married At First Sight is back for another explosive series following a hit run last autumn on E4 and the line-up looks better than ever.

With a longer run of 30 episodes to look forward to, some of the UK’s most adventurous singles will put the search for love in the hands of relationship experts Mel Schilling, Paul C. Brunson and Charlene Douglas.

The popular show promises to be “bigger and more dramatic” this series as a bunch of singles go on the journey of a lifetime, kicking off with a stag night for the boys, and hens night for the ladies.

The couples will then say ‘I do’ after meeting each other for the first time on their wedding day.

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.

All this and more will build to a dramatic series finale: glossy, high-stakes vow renewals, in which each couple must decide if they will recommit to their partner or go their separate ways, for good.

Of the couples from the 2021 series of the show, two couples are still together, one of which has a baby on the way.

Here' are all the brides and grooms taking part in this year's series...
