Married at First Sight UK will look a little different for its new season, as it's getting its own spin-off series which will be hosted by AJ Odudu. Titled Married At First Sight: Afters, this new weekly series will feature interviews with the couples as well as insights from relationship experts, making it a must-watch for those who can't get enough of the original series.

Speaking about her new role, AJ said: "I am the ultimate Married At First Sight fan so to get to do this job is a dream to me. 

"I can’t wait to break down the weekly goss and reflect on some of the biggest stories that I know every Married At First Sight group chat will be discussing. Bring it on!"

Last November it was confirmed that the series would be revamped, with Commissioning Editor of Factual Entertainment, Lee McMurray saying: "I’m thrilled to be refreshing one of the portfolio’s most popular brands for E4, bringing extra scale and ambition to what is already one of the most audacious and provocative experiments on television, and delivering what we hope will be the most exciting series yet."

An exact release date for the new season of Married at First Sight UK has not yet been confirmed by the broadcaster, but there'll be plenty to look forward to when it finally arrives.

Meanwhile, host AJ Odudu will be practicing her moves, as she's lined up for the 2021 series of Strictly Come Dancing

In a statement, she said: "I am beyond chuffed that I am going to be on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing and I'm so glad I can finally tell my mum. Her face will be a picture, she’s going to be over the moon! I absolutely love the show and am fully committed to making the most of every second of the Strictly experience. Bring it on!”

Married at First Sight UK continues on E4.
