Channel 4's Married At First Sight is looking for people to take part in a new series.

Here's how to apply for the show, which sees sets of strangers marry one another before being followed around for their first six weeks together.


At the end of the 'experiment', they'll have the choice of whether to stay together or get divorced.

Chosen from an initial pool of thousands of applicants, individuals each seeking long-term love are invited to be assessed by a panel of experts in the fields of psychology, social & evolutionary anthropology and theology.

Until the 18th century arranged marriages were common but will the combined professional experience of these experts really create the ‘perfect’ match? Can theories of evolution, social development, attachment and personality really identify a partner better suited to us than we could find ourselves? Three couples will find out - in an arranged marriage made by science.

Once matched by the experts the highly compatible couples will go forward to enter into a legally-binding marriage with a complete stranger - only meeting for the very first time at their own wedding where they’ll declare ‘I do’.

For those that do decide to become legally wed the cameras will follow the couples during the first tentative weeks of their relationship as they share their honeymoon and then their daily lives with a complete stranger.

You can now apply for the next series, with Channel 4 saying: "We’re looking for singles to take part in a potential fourth series of Married at First Sight."

To apply, you must be over 18, have never been married before and have no children.

"You feel ready for marriage," adds Channel 4, "You'll let our experts use science to match you to your ideal partner."
