Speaking on Heart Breakfast with Jamie and Amanda, Paul also announced that he and fellow relationship gurus Mel Schilling, 52, and Charlene Douglas, 42, are currently filming season nine, following the success of the 2023 series.
Previous iterations of Married At First Sight have faced criticism that their cast have been 'fame hungry', after some contestants appeared on reality TV shows prior to MAFS. However Paul has assured fans that the next batch of couples are looking for their 'lifelong partner'.
This news comes as Married At First Sight Australia is set to return to our screens in the coming months, so fans won't have long to wait for their next dose of MAFS.
Speaking to Heart, Paul was quizzed by Jamie Theakston on what the contestants in the upcoming season will be like, with Paul replying: "It’s a true cross section of what I call the 'real UK'."
Paul continued: "Previous series you’ve had people who have wanted all of it, because you know we all want a little social status, but this group without a doubt is searching for their lifelong partner."
