MAFS brides say theyre going to look crazy as new series kicks off tonight

Married At First Sight is set to hit UK TV screens again this evening, Monday 29 August, after the show proved popular among its viewers last season.

Now, two of its brand new brides have shared their thoughts about the upcoming E4 series on Lorraine ahead of its big launch.

Speaking to host Christine Lampard, who is filling in for hosting veteran Lorraine Kelly, Derby social worker Chanita Stephenson said: “You won't want to miss it", as London wedding dress designer April Banbury quipped: “There's more fireworks than bonfire night!”

Last week relationship experts Mel Schilling told Christine that this season will be “one of the best” as the show is expected to feature 30 episodes, a longer running time than its predecessors.

The show will see the UK’s singletons putting their trust in the hands of Mel and co-stars, Paul C. Brunson and Charlene Douglas.

Speaking to Chanita and April, Christine said: “I do believe they've made it a little bit more like the Australia one, which I do love. It’s brilliant.”

“We have lived it and we would come out of the dinner parties like, ‘wow, as if that’s happened’. Honestly, I've watched Married At First Sight before and I thought, ‘we must look crazy, we’re going to look crazy’ – in the best way," Chanita added.

Before the interview came to a close Christine said: “I’m pleased to say you both look happy today and I'm going to take that as a good thing – I’m not asking any questions to give it away, but it’s been an interesting happy experience so far?"

To which Chanita responded: “Yeah, it’s once in a lifetime and I would recommend anyone that wants to do it to do it, because you learn so much about yourself.

“Not just in a relationship, but you as a person. You get your husband, your partner and also make friends for life. You just get so much more.”

Married at First Sight sees complete strangers tie the knot based on scientific and sociological factors. This means their patience, mental and physical determination is put to the test as they attempt to keep their marriage alive in the weeks after the big day.

The new series is dubbed to be “bigger and more dramatic” as its fans watch couples start their journey at the altar before embarking on a jet-set honeymoon and moving in together with the other couples.

But it does not end there, the newlyweds will be put through their paces as every bit of their relationship will be scrutinised via dinner parties and commitment ceremonies. The contestants can decide whether they want to stay and if they want to leave the process during this stage.

Last Autumn saw the outspoken star, Nikita Jasmine axed from the show following a breach of its code of conduct. Not only did she bring the drama while filming but it's reported that the drama escalated off camera. And if that season is anything to go by, fans are certainly in for a treat as the show is packed with twists and turns.

So, will the couples choose to commit to their partner or say their goodbyes?
