Glitch! Viewers have been anticipating the return of Married At First Sight UK on E4 for weeks – yet fans of the show were left outraged on Monday when the series premiere was cut off mid-way through its broadcast

The glitch happened near the end of the episode, with invested fans left desperate to know how contestant Megan’s mum and brother would take the news that she was marrying a complete stranger.

Those experiencing the glitch didn’t see Megan’s mother storm off, furious with her daughter’s decision to take part on the show.

When she dropped the bombshell, both family members were completely silent, leading wellness coach Megan, 26, to ask: ‘No words?’ with mum Jackie finally responding: ‘Seriously? Oh my god!’ before storming out.  

Viewers also didn’t get to see the two weddings that took place on the episode – one of the main events from the show.

Oh dear! Viewers weren’t impressed with the website error

‘Wow I’m really enjoying #MAFSUK tonight thank you @E4Tweets!’ someone tweeted, along with a photo of their screen with the error message on it. 

‘I’m fuming e4 isn’t working online if I miss meg and bobs wedding I will kick off!’ someone else raged.

A third penned: ‘All4 got me f**ked up. The minute I commit to watching #MAFSUK it decides to have technical issues, now I can’t watch with the rest of the UK!’

A fourth penned: ‘Come on @E4Tweets I need my #MAFSUK and the e4 player’s down!’ while another complained: ‘The E4 website is misbehaving!’ 

Drama! Those experiencing the glitch didn’t see Megan’s mother storm off, furious with her daughter’s decision to take part on the show

The debut saw Manchester-based Ant, 28, and County Durham beauty Nikita, 27, matched up, and prepare for their upcoming wedding. Ant’s father gave his blessing, as well as the blessing of his Ant’s late mother.

Nikita was branded ‘shallow’ by Paul, one of the show’s matchmaking experts, due to her demanding list of requirements for her future husband. Other contestants echoed the sentiment, with Moo calling her ‘overwhelming’. 

The fiery brunette was vocally unhappy about her groom, raging: ‘He’s f**k all what I go for’, after walking down the aisle.

She continued: ‘They’ve f**king just done the total opposite of what I asked for. Looks are a huge thing for me and I don’t think they’ve listened to what I’ve said.’

Couple: Bob Voysey, 26, and Megan Wolfe, 26, were the other couple getting hitched, after being matched because of their shared love of musicals and similarly close-knit families

Bob, 26, from Dorset and Megan from Stoke, were the other couple getting hitched, after being matched because of their shared love of musicals and similarly close-knit families. 

Megan had an entire scrapbook planning her dream wedding day, and revealed that she’d never been in an ‘official relationship’, explaining how she had only experienced several ‘situationships’ in the past. 

Monday’s episode also introduced Matt, 39, and Daniel, 27, as the pair making history as the first LGBTQ+ couple to star in Married At First Sight.

Daniel told viewers he was proud of his identity and wanted to ‘share that with the world,’ while fellow contestant Alexis added: ‘I love the fact he’s a part of this experience with us.’

Married At First Sight UK airs Monday to Thursdays at 9PM on E4.
