If you’re wondering what Married At First Sight is all about then really you only need to look at the name of the show.

But if you need more context then it’s basically about two strangers who meet for the very first time on their big day and before the wedding a panel of experts go about matching the couples up using science, quizzes and technology to do so.

Those involved in the matching-up process include a a psychologist, an evolutionary anthropologist and a psycho-sexual therapist. And there are all sorts of tasks, from personality-based exams to interviews and a ‘hair strand test’ for the contestants to go through. All in all, it’s a pretty meticulous process!

Plus, if that wasn’t enough to give you the pre-wedding jitters, all of the participants are also analysed on things like family values, future ambitions and more.

Of course, some don’t end up making it down the aisle and some of those that do have since opted for a divorce just days after getting hitched – not to put you off!

So, without further ado, could you be saying a successful ‘I Do’ on the next series of the show?

If so, and you’re willing to try your luck, then simply email your name, age, and contact number to [email protected] – et voila! The rest is left in the hands of love… or ITV, rather!
