The social experiment returns

The new series of Married At First Sight UK features the franchise's first ever gay couple.

Singletons Matt and Daniel, who are one of eight pairs that have signed up for the experiment, have been matched together by experts Melanie Schilling and Paul C. Brunson.

The duo was split up for the first episode, with Matt staying with the other grooms and Daniel joining the brides.

The pair will meet for the first time at the altar in episode two.

"It’s amazing to be one half of the first gay couple," Daniel said on the show.

"Gay marriage has only been legalised very recently in Northern Ireland, which is absolutely shocking.

"And, now that I can share my relationship with the world, I find that so important."

Matt told the other bachelors that he came out when he was 15.

"When I started to tell people and realised who I was, I kind of became the person who I am now," he said.

However, it seems theire age difference could threaten their marriage, before it's even begun.

Married At First Sight UK continues on weeknights at 9pm on E4.
