The next season of Married at First Sight UK is almost upon us, and we can’t wait to meet the eight couples who will come face-to-face for the very first time at the altar.

Will it be as dramatic and combative as Married at First Sight Australia is known to be, and of which we are also huge fans? For those new to the series, the concept is simple; couples meet for the first time on the day of their wedding, and after saying “I do”, they head off on their honeymoon.

The next big step is moving in together for a while to test how well they get along. They are watched over – not at all times, that would be weird – by experts who give guidance. The ultimate goal is for love to be found and the contestants to get their very own happily ever after.

As expected though, a lot of couples who meet do not spend the rest of their days together after the experiment, but it can happen. A couple from the 2020 series recently even celebrated their one year anniversary. But will the same happen this year?

Now that the contestants have been revealed, here’s everything we know so far about Married at First Sight UK 2021.

Married at First Sight UK 2021 release date

Married at First Sight UK will launch on Monday 30th August on E4.

Channel 4 confirmed the release date with a post on their official Instagram account, writing: Dust off your wedding hats because you’ve been invited to the weddings of the year! #MAFSUK starts Monday 30th August.”

Who are the Married at First Sight UK experts?

We have three experts on hand for series 6 to dish out advice to the would-be lovers that will be meeting at the end of the aisle. This year we have Mel Schilling, who appeared on the original Australian version of the show, and she will be joining Celebs Go Dating’s Paul C Brunson and Sex and Relationship Therapist, Charlene Douglas.
