MARRIED At First Sight couple Owen and Michelle have declared their love for each other, after they moved in together just ONE week after they met.
The Channel 4 reality TV show, which uses a series of psychological tests and professional matchmakers to pair prospective romantic partners together, continued its fifth series tonight.
On the latest episode, viewers watched in awe as the sweet couple revealed they had fallen in love.
In a sweet moment, the newlyweds were seen talking about thier feelings.
Michelle, 25, from Hastings was the first one to open up saying: "I don't think I've ever felt this way before."
She then explained: "Coming into this, I didn't expect to love you as much as I do."
Not holding back, her new husband Owen, 31, then said, "I love you too", before reaching in for a kiss with his blushing bride.
Teacher Michelle and IT sales manager Owen had only just met but were forced to move in together at his mum's house when the country went into lockdown
Like many couples around the UK, the national pandemic meant the two had to commit 100% to the relationship and face spending 24-7 with one another.
But after being picked from over 7,000 applicants, Owen and Michelle walked down the aisle and almost immediately had to isolate at Owen's mother's house, who was away.
Michelle told The Mirror: "It did kind of feel like I was going into the unknown.
"But with that kind of comes a lot of excitement as well.
"It’s why we both signed up for this experience in the first place!"
Luckily for the pair there was an instant attraction towards one another as they laid eyes on each other during their lavish wedding ceremony at Eastwell Manor in Ashford, Kent.
Owen laughed: "I did a little fist bump to myself. Michelle looked gorgeous and I was like, ‘Come on, she’s hot!’.
He added: "That physical attraction was definitely there straight away and then I just felt relief that she hadn’t done a runner and had actually turned up!"
Although Michelle admits it was "terrifying" as she waited behind the door to walk down the aisle.
She explained: "It was just knowing that as soon as that door opened it was going to be an absolute life-changing moment. I was shaking all over and hyperventilating. Owen must’ve thought I was a lunatic!"
“But the moment I saw Owen I instantly felt calmer because he had such a kind aura around him," Michelle added.
"I found him attractive and the feelings of being terrified just instantly fell away."
But will they last the distance and stay married?
- Married at First Sight, concludes next Tuesday at 9.30pm, Channel 4.
