Married at First Sight Australia 2018 was aired on E4 last year, with us Brits getting to watch the drama for the first time.
And one couple who have definitely made their mark on the fifth series are Mathew Lockett and Alycia Galbraith.

What happened to Mathew and Alycia after Married at First Sight Australia?
Plumber Mathew, 34, and student Alycia, 31, quickly became fan favourites after meeting at the beginning of the series.
Matty was seemingly besotted with his bride at the beginning and the pair even moved into an apartment together.
But viewers were left devastated when he admitted he no longer had feelings for Alycia and began sleeping on the couch, before moving out into his own apartment.
Heartbroken by his decision, Alycia admitted: “I don’t know where the Mat that I married went.
“He disappeared, and it was really, really upsetting for me.”
Mat also later opened up about their split, saying he ‘felt uncomfortable around her.’
“It massively bothered me that we had nothing in common,” she said.
“I like to party, she doesn’t drink. I like to sleep with an open window, she likes 500 blankets. We don’t even like the same fruits! We’re very different people.”
