The new, supersized version of the world’s leading relationship format Married At First Sight UK dominated ratings during its dramatic seventh series, becoming Channel 4’s most successful show of 2022.

The social experiment sees singles who have failed to find love put their hearts in the hands of a team of experts, who select their perfect partner. The couples then meet for the first time at the altar, where they make a lifelong commitment to each other.

Barb (Broadcasters Audience Research Board) data has confirmed that the program was officially the top show of any UK broadcaster’s streaming service during September and October.

Season 7 amassed an incredible 51.7million views on All 4’s streaming platform – making it the broadcaster’s biggest hit in 2022.

Married At First Sight UK has already been recommissioned for season 8, to launch next year, and Channel 4 announced yesterday a new Married at First Sight Christmas special, Married at First Sight UK: Christmas Reunion, set to air on E4 in December.

Married at First Sight UK is produced by CPL Productions. Married at First Sight is distributed worldwide by Red Arrow Studios International.
