MAFS UK shares first look as grooms sob and brides rage as they meet partners
The Australian version was the surprise hit of lockdown earlier this year, and a brand new series of Married At First Sight UK comes to E4 soon.
Guaranteed to plug a Love Island-sized gap in the reality TV dating show schedule, MAFS UK has whetted our appetite with a juicy new trailer.
In the preview, Billy Idol's 1982 classic track White Wedding plays as bride-to-be Nikita warns: "I've been very specific, I've been very particular so if they get it wrong they need sacking."
She later yells at another participant: "If this was on the outside world, you'd be blocked and deleted."
One bride is asked by her bridesmaid "Are you OK?" and receives a blunt "No" in reply.
Another bride, Morag, brutally reveals: "I didn't exactly get what I ordered."
There's also plenty of shots of teary brides and grooms.
The UK version has had a shake up, and is taking its cues from the recent success of the Aussie show.
Instead of legal marriages, the couples will make a lifelong commitment to one another at a glamorous ceremony, overseen by a wedding celebrant.
Following the celebrations, these recent strangers will embark on a luxurious honeymoon, before moving in with each other and their fellow couples. So expect fireworks.
The UK show will also include those infamous and fiery weekly dinner parties.
There will also be 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 involving high-stakes vow renewals, where each couple must decide if they will recommit to their partner or go their separate ways.
No-nonsense Married At First Sight Australia expert Melanie Schilling and sex and relationship therapist Charlene Douglas will join returning star Paul C. Brunson (Celebs Go Dating)for the addictive new series.
