TWO new couples join Married at First Sight UK

Four new singles are set to shake up the experiment as they get married at first sight on Thursday night.


E4 has confirmed that during Thursday's episode of Married at First Sight UK - the show in which a batch of singles say "I do" to complete strangers, who they'll meet for the first time on their wedding day - four brand new singles will join the experiment and get married.



The two new couples join at the end of week three and join existing married couples; Adrian and Thomas, April and George, Chanita and Jordan, Duka and Whitney, Jenna and Zoe, Jess and Pjay, Kasia and Kwame and Lara and Richie.


These couples have already made a lifelong commitment to one another at a glamorous ceremony, overseen by a wedding celebrant and we've already seen plenty of drama at the weekly dinner parties and commitment ceremonies.


Meet the new bride and grooms set to shake up the show, here...


Gemma

30, Devon


30-year-old Gemma describes herself as “a bad bitch”. She’s fiercely independent, bold and a bit wild. Gemma is outspoken, real, but incredibly loving. Gemma knows who she is, has endless self-confidence and prides herself on always standing up for herself.

With her tattooed body and daring red hair, she is not afraid to stand out from the crowd and is never shy of male attention. However, she’s yet to find a man who can add substance to her life. As a proud mother of two and owner of a successful hair salon, Gemma lives life to the fullest and feels she has it all except for one thing.


She says she got close to a fairytale romance a couple of times, but now feels like she’s running out of luck and is desperate to meet a man who can sweep her off her feet and keep up with her antics in the bedroom!



Johnathan

32, Selby


Johnathan is a confident, spontaneous adventurer who often jets off by himself to go exploring. He doesn’t conform to the norm and very much sees himself as an outlier doing his own thing. When he is at home he works as a carpenter and has done since he left school.

With his life very much together, he feels there’s one piece of the puzzle missing. His longest relationship was two years, towards the end, Johnathan wanted to settle down but unfortunately it came to an end.


He says he’s very much ready to settle down and just needs the right girl – someone with a natural look who is easy going and up for an adventure.



Matt

32, Huddersfield


Matt expresses his individuality through his unconventional look and style, which sometimes means people are quick to form a negative opinion. Underneath the tattoos though, he has a heart of gold and would do anything for his friends and family.

Matt owns a successful barber shop in York, and whilst he has a talent for cutting hair, the most rewarding part of his job is having deep and meaningful conversations with customers, giving them life advice and positivity.

His friends describe him as an extrovert with a lot of love to give. He adores his two dogs, and when he's not hiking with them, he can be found in the gym where he could be doing anything from calisthenics to weightlifting.

He's always looking for the next adventure and would like to meet a woman who shares his passion for life and isn't afraid to try new things.



Sophie

26, Manchester


Sophie is independent, financially stable and doesn’t need a man to make her happy. However, she would love to find a soulmate. She’s spent the last seven years working hard in tech, climbing the career ladder to get to where she is now. She owns her own property and appreciates the finer things in life.

Having lived in Manchester for the last five and a half years, she’s struggling to find men on the same trajectory as her, with the same values and goals, who won't be intimidated by her confidence and success.

The only successful men who seem to approach her are already in relationships or are never actually available to pursue anything long term. Sophie is looking for someone who can live life to the fullest, both in their lifestyle and career.

She’s a romantic at heart, when the right person comes along, she’s ready to give 100%, let her walls down and work together to find love.



Married at First Sight UK continues Mondays to Thursdays at 9pm on E4
