The Season 5 finale of the original Danish version of Married at First Sight proved a ratings winner last night, as it completed its eight episode run on DR1 Denmark.

The show won the night on DR1 to become the most viewed show in Denmark, with a 34.8 share. Two couples have stayed together in Season 5: Kathrine and Michael, and Vanessa and Stefan.

Created and produced by Snowman Productions, Married at First Sight has become one of the most talked-about and highest-rating formats of the decade. The show has been produced locally in 29 territories worldwide including multiple seasons in the USA (Lifetime), where Season 7 recently aired; the UK (Channel 4), Australia (Nine), Denmark (DR1) and Germany (SAT.1).

In Married at First Sight 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. After the wedding and honeymoon, the married couples move in together and start their new lives. From the first kiss to the first tears, cameras document every moment as experts analyse the relationships. Six weeks of marriage later, the couples have to make a decision: stay together or file for divorce.

The format of Married at First Sight is distributed worldwide by Red Arrow Studios International.
