Season 8 of Married at First Sight UK has officially come to an end, with the second part of the reunion airing on Thursday 16th November.


All the Married at First Sight 2023 cast gathered for the last time to reveal whether they're still together and what they got up to after the cameras stopped rolling.

For the likes of Tasha and Paul, it was all hunky-dory as they admitted they're still very much loved up, but for others the same couldn't be said as rumours swirled about Jordan and Erica, following a night out with the lads.

Things got very emotional for Ella as well, with the 29-year-old opening up about her transition and acceptance on the show.

The 2023 season might be over, but for those of you looking for your next MAFS fix, we have good news!

We can confirm that there's more Married at First Sight on the way, with season 9 already green-lit for 2024.

Read on for everything you need to know about the next season, including when you can expect to see it on air.
