“You eventually get a cast that yes, I think they want status, but I also think they want love, and that’s what that vetting process is all about.”
Sex and relationship therapist Charlene Douglas echoed that the Channel 4 show is “quite a process to put yourself through”.
She continued: “I think people have seen in the past episodes in the past few seasons, to know what it’s about now. And you know, when you’re in front of Paul, Mel (Schilling) and I, we will challenge you and you know, if you’re here for the wrong reasons that will become apparent.
“There has been no evidence, from what we’ve seen, that anyone has been here other than because they want to find love.”

Georges told Virgin Radio at the event: “People have to realise that yeah, the cast have done telly before, but that means nothing. This is like no other show,
“This is an actual experiment. You have to go in there. The first time you meet [your bride] is when you [get to the aisle]. That’s the first time you see them and you’ve got to have some pretty big Kahunas to want to be able to do that.”
Married At First Sight UK continues Monday at 9pm on E4.
