A full list of 16 singles have been released by E4, with a spokesperson for the channel saying: “Following a record-breaking run last Autumn, Married at First Sight UK is heading back down the aisle for a brand new, bigger and bolder series.

“The new series will once again follow a fresh batch of singles, whose search for love and a happy-ever-after will lead them to saying “I do” to a complete stranger, whom they’ll meet for the first time on their wedding day.

“With a longer run (30 episodes), this series promises to be bigger and more dramatic than ever before!”

Here’s what you need to know about the show and Manchester’s representative.
