Married at First Sight UK 2021: Release date, trailer, experts, couples and latest news
Because weddings aren't already nerve-wracking enough!
Married at First Sight UK fans were left confused on Thursday 30th September when the final episode didn't air.
The network began showing a repeated version of Wednesday night's show, however, after the first ad break, the episode froze altogether.
Thankfully, the issue has been rectified, with E4 apologising for the error which was caused by a technical issue at the weekend.
We can confirm that the Married at First Sight UK final will air on Friday, 1st October, with no changes to the Married at First Sight UK reunion which is scheduled for Monday, 4th October.
It will see the remaining Married at First Sight UK 2021 couples decide whether they want to stay together at the final vows.
So far, we've seen Dan and Matt, and Marilyse and Franky make their decisions - with both choosing to remain in their marriages.,
It's now left with Morag and Luke, Adam and Tayah, and Amy and Josh.
While she managed to make it to the end of the experiment with her husband, Amy considered leaving Married at First Sight UK 2021 on many occasions, telling RadioTimes.com exclusively: "It’s very different from what I thought it was going to be. I didn’t even know what the show was when I applied for it."
She added: "I literally thought it was going to be like a documentary and you just find a person, that’s it. But then when you have to add in the equation of the dinner party and all those other things, I’m not used to people being in my business 24/7, and I’m not used to being in other people’s business."
So, what time should viewers expect the Married at First Sight UK final to air?
Here's everything you need to know about Married at First Sight UK 2021, including where MaFS UK is filmed, how to watch Married at First Sight UK, and which Married at First Sight UK couples are still together.

We apologise to the fans of the show and have worked hard to get the episode to you this evening at 9pm. We hope that when you finally watch it you can find out whether Amy & Josh, Tayah & Adam and Morag & Luke renew their vows."
