If you've never seen the show, you can figure out what it's all about from the name. It's basically a televised arranged marriage, with TV producers and 'relationship experts' choosing the spouse.
Many people have become somewhat hooked on the Aussie version, which sees couples' relationships tested through a series of homestays, dinner parties and commitment ceremonies.
It's as much about drama as anything, and clearly Channel 4 have realised that, because after five series in the UK, it's decided it's time for an 'explosive' makeover.
In a statement, the network said: "Wedding bells are ringing as Married At First Sight UK gets a major makeover for 2021, with the home-grown version of the global phenomenon making its way to E4.
"Taking inspiration from the hugely successful Australian version that gripped British viewers this summer , the new UK series will be a bigger, more explosive take on the format, following a fresh batch of singles as they search for love and a happy-ever-after with complete strangers.
"Following the Australian format, rather than legal marriages, the couples will make a lifelong commitment to one another at a glamorous ceremony, overseen by a wedding celebrant, that includes guests, bridal gowns, dancing, speeches and cake."
Given this change, the new series will be called Not Actually Married At First Sight UK. Just messing, but it should be.
The statement continued: "After the ceremony and celebrations are over, true love is well and truly put to the test, as they embark on a luxurious honeymoon, before moving in with each other AND their fellow couples.
"Relationships will be put under the microscope, by fellow brides and grooms at weekly dinner parties - as well as by the experts, at recurring commitment ceremonies, where couples choose whether they want to stay in or leave the process.
"All this and more will build to a dramatic series finale: glossy, high-stakes vow renewals, in which each couple must decide if they will recommit to their partner or go their separate ways."
Sounds like great telly... Sorry, I mean that sounds like a great way to find a spouse.
