Married at First Sight Australia returns to our screens tonight so dust off your best hat and get your hankies at the ready.
This latest romantic offering will be the tenth series of the popular show.
Here is what we know.
What is the format of Married at First Sight Australia?
Ten new brides and ten new grooms will meet for the first time at the altar on their wedding day.
But fear not, the “marriages” depicted on the show are not legally binding as contestants actually engage in an unofficial commitment ceremony.
Each couple has been handpicked by relationship experts John Aiken and Mel Schilling, and clinical sexologist Alessandra Rampolla.
The blurb for the show adds: “Throughout the series, we will follow the couples as they experience the extreme highs and lows of marital life with a partner they barely know.
“The couples will be hit with many challenges along the way – from living under the same roof to never-before-seen challenges that could potentially rock the foundation of their relationships.
“But the trusted experts are there to guide and support them, in the hopes that their relationship will survive outside of the experiment.”
