Married At First Sight UK is back on E4 and this year the coupling up series is more intense than ever. A total of 16 singletons will be matched to form eight couples as they venture off on a journey to find love. Fans may have noticed the show is not on tonight and Express.co.uk has all you need to know about why.
Why is Married At First Sight UK not on tonight?
The new series of MAFSUK started at the end of August and it has been airing at 9pm every night on E4.
So far, six couples have been matched and they met each other for the first time on their wedding day.
The couples are Nikita and Ant, Megan and Bob, Daniel and Matt, Franky and Marilyse, Morag and Luke and Amy and Josh.
The first three couples have jetted off on their honeymoons and they have got to know each other a little better.
Next week will see two new pairs of singletons tie the knot as the experts work their magic.
The series only airs from Mondays to Thursdays, with the 9pm slot on Friday nights taken by a repeat of Gogglebox.
Season six of MAFSUK is made up of 21 episodes, meaning it will run across a total of five weeks, with a special finale episode added on.
The next episode will air at 9pm on Monday, September 6, and it will see the wedding phase finally come to an end.
The last two couples will recite their vows to each other before they head off on their honeymoons.
After this, the pairs will have to move in with each other and assess the progress of other couples at dinner parties.
The episode synopsis says: “The final four plunge into marriage with a complete stranger, with one couple struggling to connect, while a bride goes against the advice of her family to find love.”
Experts Mel Schilling, Paul C Brunson and Charlene Douglas have taken on the challenge of matching the singletons.
The last remaining participants include Adam, 26, Jordon, 27, Alexis, 28 and Tayah, 25.
A sneak peek for Monday’s episode showed Tayah and her mother falling out over her bold decision to marry a stranger.
Her mum is heard saying: “I think you’re being quite irrational, it’s a huge risk.”

It looks as if she has been paired with Adam, but she is more concerned over whether her mother will be there on the big day.
Meanwhile, Jordon and Alexis are seen walking hand in hand away from their wedding venue.
Alexis is worried her new husband is too quiet, as she is heard saying: “Maybe he just takes time to warm up.
“I just want to get to know him, tell me about yourself.”
His family members are heard saying how he has always been the quiet type, which may become a problem for Alexis.
Fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matches so far.
One said: “Soooooo many mismatched couples here… definitely a swap year.”
Meanwhile, another said: “Shocked at the way Nikita went at her new husband. Calling him horrible names, throwing things at him.
“The poor guy only disagreed with her. It’s abuse and if a guy would have acted like that, there would be uproar.”
A third added: “I’ve always preferred the Australian version of #MarriedAtFirstSight so I’m glad that the UK version has adopted it.
“But with most of these matches, at this point, it feels like they’ve opted for drama over genuine potential for lasting relationships. Early days?”
Married At First Sight UK airs from Mondays to Thursdays at 9pm on E4.
