We are loving the new series of Married at First Sight UK. The new episodes only began last week but we've already seen plenty of jaw-dropping moments and sparks between (some of) our couples.

But the UK version of the reality show, airing nightly on E4, has decided to mix up its format and add some new brides and grooms to the mix. The new singles will, like the other couples, meet their match for the first time at the altar. But with newbies added to the group, will heads turn?

Let's get to know the new brides and grooms joining Married at First Sight UK…

The new grooms


JJ is a 30-year-old fashion brand owner from Essex. The self-confessed "mummy's boy" wants to make his mum proud on his wedding day and is hoping to ditch the "Essex boy" stereotype. He's also described as a "massive softie and a hopeless romantic at heart."
