Married at First Sight returns for a brand-new series (series 5) TONIGHT, as four new brave single people marry a complete stranger who they meet for the first time on their wedding day. Having been selected from over 7000 applicants and after undergoing rigorous interviews and psychological tests, the four singletons put their trust in a brand-new panel of elite matchmakers to find them their perfect partner.
This new panel of experts includes two of the world’s most experienced professional matchmakers who, between them, have successfully paired thousands of couples: American dating guru Paul C Brunson, known as the real-life Hitch and Oprah’s ‘Love Doctor’, and leading UK matchmaker Gen Gresset. They’re supported by insight and analysis from clinical psychologist Dr Angela Smith. In this opening episode, the four singletons receive the exciting news that they have been matched by the experts. But it doesn’t go down well with one mother-of-the-bride, when primary school teacher Michelle reveals all to her family.
Will it work out for better or for worse when she walks down the aisle and marries IT sales manager Owen at first sight? The big day also looms for divorced dad-of-two and businessman David, who’s been paired with mum-of-three and events manager Shareen. They’re both looking for lasting love second time around. Will they find it on their unconventional wedding day?
Married at First Sight airs straight after The Great British Bake Off, or you can stream it on demand via All4.
