The broadcaster also released another first-look clip, teasing the contestants in the run-up to their wedding day as well as all the drama to come, with 31-year-old veterinary nurse Morgan telling the camera: “I mean I didn’t exactly get what I ordered.”

Seven women and nine men will be looking for love on the show, with the contestants’ ages ranging from 25 to 47.
