Over the last month, reality TV fans have been gripped by the 2021 series of Married at First Sight UK – the first season to follow the Australian version's format, with all couples moving into a block of flats after their honeymoons and meeting up for drama-causing dinner parties.


Last night, viewers tuned into E4 expecting the highly-anticipated Married at First Sight UK finale to air but instead were greeted by a repeat of Wednesday's episode due and left wondering whether Amy and Josh, Tayah and Adam and Morgan and Luke had decided to renew their vows after all.

Not to worry though – the finale will be coming to our screens very soon and we'll soon know what happened to all of the Married at First Sight UK 2021 couples.

Read on to find out when exactly the Married at First Sight UK finale will air, why it wasn't broadcast yesterday and whether the reunion episode is still on schedule.
