Married at First Sight announces another shake-up ahead of Australia-inspired series

The hugely popular reality show will be returning to E4 later this year.

Married at First Sight UK has confirmed that a third expert will be joining the relationship experts on the upcoming series.

Mel Schilling, who appeared on the original Australian version of the popular reality show, and Celebs Go Dating's Paul C Brunson have already been confirmed for the new series of Married at First Sight.

But they won't be alone as they help the participating couples adjust to being newlyweds, as E4 confirms that Charlene Douglas will also join the series as a Sex and Relationship Therapist.

According to E4, Douglas will work alongside the new couples as they navigate their new relationships and start to get to know their partners on a more intimate level.

Douglas will spend time with each couple during every commitment ceremony, where she'll spend time guiding them and helping them to talk through any issues they might be having, especially in regards to physical connection or intimacy.

"I am delighted to be joining this new series of Married at First Sight UK," she said as part of a prepared statement.

"This is a brand-new role for the show and it is important to remember that these couples have just met and are going to be getting to know each other quickly.

"It's also really interesting to bring my knowledge alongside the expertise of Mel and Paul. As a trio, I think we will make a really great team."
