Now back from their honeymoons, all the Married at First Sight UK 2021 couples will now move in together before meeting for a sit down dinner where they’ll get to meet all the other pairs.

One couple won’t be in the experiment for much longer, however, as Married at First Sight UK star Nikita has been removed for ‘unacceptable aggression’ off camera.

The wellbeing of cast and crew is our utmost priority at all times throughout production and beyond,” a Channel 4 statement read. “During filming, a situation escalated off camera and Nikita displayed a level of aggression that was unacceptable and breached our agreed code of conduct on behaviour.

“As a result, she was asked to leave the experiment. All involved have been offered support and Nikita has since apologised and resolved the situation with those involved.”

In a clip from the episode airing on Wednesday, 8th September, Nikita can be seen yelling at someone, although it’s not clear whether this altercation is what led to her being removed from the show.

Nikita married Ant on the E4 dating, but the show hasn’t yet revealed whether he’ll stay on in the experiment without her.

This year, the show has had a few changes, however, with the Married at First Sight UK experts revealing how they’ve “spiced up” the new series, copying themes from the very popular Australian series, such as commitment ceremonies, dinners and so on.

Also new to the series is sex therapist Charlene Douglas, who will be on hand to speak to the couples at their intimate relationships.

She joins the Married at First Sight UK experts, which includes matchmaker Paul C Brunson and psychiatrist Mel Schiling, who previously worked on the Australian series.

But, with all these changes, has Married at First Sight lost its sincerity?

As the series continues, here’s everything you need to know about Married at First Sight UK 2021, including when it’s on, who all the couples are, where MaFS UK is filmed and the latest news.
