Who is matched on Married at First Sight UK 2021? Meet all the couples hoping to find love…
Married at First Sight UK is back on our screens, which means we’re in for two months worth of drama.
This time around, the Channel 4 series has taken inspiration from the Australian version and will feature weekly dinner parties.
Experts Paul C Brunson, Mel Schilling and Charlene Douglas have been tasked with matching the 16 lucky contestants.
But who are the Married at First Sight couples this year? Here’s what we know…
Tayah Victoria and Adam Aveling were matched after sharing a positive outlook on life and family values.
But things didn’t exactly get off to a good start when Tayah fell out with her mother about joining the experiment.
Her mother warned her she was taking a huge risk and called her ‘irresponsible’ but luckily she did turn up to the big day.
There was another awkward moment when Adam said he fancied one of Tayah's bridesmaids, mistaking her for the bride.
Married at First Sight UK matched Jordon and Alexis on the show.
Personal trainer Jordon, 27, opened up on his hopes of finding true love on the series.
He said: "My happily ever after would be to learn stuff about myself that I didn’t know before.
“I want to become stronger as a person and to obviously walk away with a partner and with some new friends."
Amy from Cornwall married Josh in episode four of Married at First Sight UK.
The pair look like the perfect match, with Sports Journalist Amy saying she wants to ‘learn what love is and take off the veneer of sassiness that has protected her from letting another person in.'
Meanwhile, Josh has ‘ambition, competitiveness and drive’ and said he can succeed at anything he turns his hand to.
They also have similar interests, with Amy previously working as a glamour model and Josh also having a career in modelling.
Franky is the eldest MAFS contestant and is 47-years-old and he has been matched with 37-year-old Marilyse.
As an expat living in Dubai, Franky is looking for a woman to move to the UEA with him, while mum-of-two Marilyse said she is looking for her best friend and soulmate.
We will have to wait and see what happens between these two...
Morag and Luke tied the knot in the second episode of Married at First Sight UK.
Veterinary Nurse Morag, 31, wasn't exactly impressed with firefighter Luke, 36, when she first saw him.
She told the camera: “He wouldn’t be my typical guy I would go for so I’m not exactly jumping for joy.
“When I first saw him, I was taken aback.”
Megan is 26-year-old from Stoke.
She is a Wellness Coach and actress and describes herself as a ‘constant entertainer’ who loves to sing, dance, and share her good energy with everyone she meets.
Megan has been matched with Robert or Bob, who is also 26 and is a business protection specialist from Dorset.
When Bob saw Megan walking down the stairs on their wedding day, he was seemingly besotted and commented on her ‘beautiful blue eyes’, adding that she looked like a princess.
But things didn’t exactly start well for these two as Nikita said to the camera: "He's f*** all what I'd go for.
"[The experts have] just done the total opposite of what I asked for.
"I mean, obviously I was talking about looks quite a lot.
"Looks was a huge thing to me and I don't think they've listened to what I've said."
The pair are the first gay couple on the show, with Daniel saying: “It’s amazing to be one half of the first gay couple.
“Gay marriage has only been legalised very recently in Northern Ireland, which is absolutely shocking. And, now that I can share my relationship with the world, I find that so important.”
