Married at First Sight UK is officially back for 2021, and we couldn't be happier. It's already been major drama, from Nikita's potential partner checklist to Morag and Luke's baffling pairing. Well, it's all coming out now, as it looks like Nikita and new husband Ant may have met long before the show, on a different reality series back in 2018.

Ant and Nikita were one of the very first couples to tie the knot in the new series, which has been revamped to be more like the Australian version that we were all so obsessed with (and with good reason). But observant viewers were quick to realise that we've actually seen Nikita before, on two different show no less.

Back in 2018 the 26-year-old appeared on MTV's dating show True Love or True Lies and that same year she was on E4's comedy game show Your Face or Mine, and returned for another stint on the show the following year.

While the discovery has prompted criticism from some viewers who say this is proof Nikita is just looking for fame and not love, others were quick to point out that she isn't the only one who has done reality TV before.

In actual fact, Ant, Nikita's now husband (sort of) appeared on the same show as Nikita - Your Face or Mine - in the very same year as she did - 2018, prompting many to wonder if they'd met before walking up the aisle together in MAFSUK.

However, both Nikita and Ant appeared on the show with different people and we don't currently have any actual evidence to suggest that the pair met during filming. But it does highlight how small the reality TV world is, doesn't it?
