Meet the cast of Married at First Sight UK 2022 – RadioTimes

This season will be bigger than ever.
A 2022 season of Married at First Sight UK begins tonight, with a fresh batch of singletons hoping to find The One in an unconventional way.
A cast of 16 singles will be walking down the aisle, including a Dreamboy, a social worker, a dental hygienist and a waitress.
The hopefuls will be heading down the aisle in the search of love when MAFS UK returns on E4 for a longer season of 30 episodes.
They will meet their potential soulmate for the first time on their wedding day and say "I do" to a complete stranger in the hope of finding that special connection before putting their relationship to the test: heading on a honeymoon and then moving in with each other and their fellow couples.
Here's everything you need to know about the MAFS UK 2022 contestants.

While he's used to having all eyes on him when he enters a room, he's looking for a partner to help balance him out.
"I'm really concerned they might not like me," he said. "That's ok, but I don't want to waste their time or my own time."
