Married at First Sight Australia announces return to UK - and it's very soon

2021 is already getting off to a good start.

Married at First Sight Australia is set to return to the UK in the New Year, it has been confirmed.

The Aussie incarnation of the hit reality series, which sees newlyweds-to-be meet for the first time at the altar, has already been popular with British viewers.

E4 have now revealed that the show's sixth series will premiere on January 4, airing each night from Monday to Friday.

As usual, once the couples marry, their relationships will be put to the test as they go on honeymoon and then move in with each other and the other couples taking part.

The UK incarnation of the show was recently confirmed to be adopting the Aussie version's format, which alongside the honeymoon and living together aspect also includes weekly dinner parties, experts, and recurring commitment ceremonies.

The finale will then see the couples decide if they will ultimately recommit or go their separate ways for good.

"I'm thrilled to be refreshing one of the portfolio's most popular brands for E4, bringing extra scale and ambition to what is already one of the most audacious and provocative experiments on television, and delivering what we hope will be the most exciting series yet," said Lee McMurray, Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment, at the time.

Murray Boland, Executive Producer for CPL, added: "It is so exciting to be starting afresh on a supersized version of such a pioneering and successful series."

Married at First Sight Australia will return on E4 on January 4 at 7.30pm, while the UK version will return on E4 in 2021.
