The global phenomenon 90 Day Fiancé will be landing in the UK for the first time since the iconic show took the US by storm.

With a whopping nine seasons and more than a dozen spin-offs in the US, now, the hit series will be landing in the UK this summer with 90 Day Fiancé UK.

The series follows eight loved-up Brits and their long-distance lovers for 90 days to see if their relationship is the real deal or if they should call it off.

Throughout the show, we'll see the couples experience a rollercoaster of emotions, from explosive family drama and culture clashes, to awkward moments and shocking revelations.

With the stakes as high as ever, the big question remains if they will propose or end up walking away.

Here's everything we know about 90 Day Fiancé UK...

When will 90 Day Fiancé UK be released?

90 Day Fiancé UK will be available to watch exclusively on Discovery Plus from Sunday, July 24. The series will consist of 12 one hour long episodes.

What happens in 90 Day Fiancé UK?

90 Day Fiancé UK follows the same premise as the US version as we document the lives of eight Brits who have found love abroad. 

In usual 90 Day Fiancé fashion, trials and tribulations are to be expected as we see each of their overseas partners spend their first 90 days in the UK.

Over the 90 days, the couples will learn what it is truly like to live and be with each other, while their international partners consider if they would be willing to leave  their home country behind for love.

Meet the 90 Day Fiancé UK couples...
