Taking inspiration from the Australian version, Married at First Sight made its way to the UK, now season six has returned with eight new couples taking a trip down the aisle on E4. The mystery of who will be paired with who will remain the same, however, the marriages on the show are not legally binding and will feature a same-sex couple for the first time.
The show’s premise is a bold social experiment where single people, matched by experts, marry complete strangers they meet for the first time at the altar.
The Australian series proved to be a massive hit during lockdown and is returning for series six in the UK.
A spokesperson for the show told Metro.co.uk: “Following the Australian format, rather than legal marriages, the couples will make lifelong commitments to one another.”
The UK version of the show will not require the couples to be in a legally binding marriage, unlike the Australian version, where they are the real deal.

The trailer for the new series, which aired on Monday night, saw 31-year-old bride to be Vet Morag utterly disappointed with her match.
After walking down the aisle and coming face to face with 36-year-old car home manager and fireman Luke, Morag did not like what she saw.
Speaking to the camera’s after the ceremony, Morag says: “I mean, I didn’t exactly get what I ordered.”
The teaser trailer also showed the same-sex couple of 27-year-old Daniel, who loves the great outdoors, and 39-year-old Matt, who is hoping to move on from a nasty break-up.
The voice-over reveals that the couple is confronted with an age gap, with Matt asking: “How old are you?”
E4 also posted a trailer for the show on their Twitter account, however, some fans were not convinced about the UK version of the show.
One user said: “So disappointed, won’t be watching, absolutely nothing wrong with the original format, why has it been dumbed down to trash reality TV.”
Another added: “Looking at the trailers, it looks like it’s now gone ‘that root’ at the fame-hungry, predictable after the Aussie one, I’ll give it a go, but not holding up my hopes.”

“Disappointed that the UK is following the Australia trashy format, not interested at all now,” a third user vented.
However, not all viewers were negative about the show, as some were excited to see the show return in the UK.
One user wrote: “A social experiment will always be a winner for me! And now that it’s in England I’m even more excited, can’t wait to watch!!”
“If this is like the Australian one, then I am all here for it, the ‘social experiment’ first few series proved it never worked as they all ended up single again, at least this brings a bit more entertainment,” another added.
Season five saw eight couples take on the challenge and marry their match after meeting for the first time.
However, none of the eight couples managed to stay together once the show had ended, despite one half of the couple trying to save the marriage.
This included couple Sean Thomsen and Blair Rachael, after Blair was keen to give their relationship a go, Sean broke things off during a commitment ceremony and chose to leave.
Blair wanted to patch things up, but Sean said he couldn’t picture them together and went on to date co-star Tracey Jewel who was initially paired with Dean Wells.
Married at First Sight airs Monday-Thursday at 9pm on E4.
