How old is Franky Spencer and what is his job? Here's what we know about the MAFS UK star...
The dating series sees 16 singletons matched by experts before meeting their potential partners for the first time on their wedding day.
This time around, Channel 4 bosses have taken inspiration from the Australian version of the show with the promise of more drama.
So, as we sit down with a cuppa in front of the TV, let’s get to know contestant Franky a little better…
Franky is the eldest MAFS contestant and is 47-years-old.
The MAFS star fought for his country for 15 years and lived as an expat for 15 years in Dubai.
He now wants to find his soulmate who shares his morals and will be happy to join him overseas in Dubai.
The military man describes himself as ‘a strong, dominant leader’ who tells people exactly what he thinks.
Franky is a Strength and Conditioning Coach.
Opening up about his life so far, he said: “All my life has been about challenges. I don’t like to do the normal.
“If anything is normal then I find it boring. I’m not captured unless I’m entertained and challenged - and Married At First Sight UK is a big challenge.”
Franky’s Instagram is @fitcoachfranky, where he mostly just shares photos in the gym with his clients.
Telling his followers all about his next adventure, Franky said: “WOULD YOU MARRY A STRANGER? I DID!
“Sound crazy? It is indeed and that’s why I did it because life is short.
“16 of us across the UK went through this experiment and trusted a panel of experts to match us with a partner - What could possibly go wrong? LOL.”
He added: “Tune in and find out!”
