Married At First Sight UK is back and looks set to be bigger and even more dramatic than before, and in a show first they have a same-sex couple, Daniel and Matt.

In a preview for Tuesday's show, fans were treated to a look at the hopefully happy couple as Daniel walks down the aisle to meet Matt.

However, a voiceover explains: "Two grooms are confronted with an age gap," as Matt, 39, is seen asking Daniel, 27: "How old are you?"

Daniel says: "It is a nerve-wracking experience."

Matt can be heard saying: "It's going to be the first moment of the rest of my life."

The younger of the two, Daniel, works in sales and is from Northern Ireland.

He's described as a "spiritual force to be reckoned with" and a positive person.

Daniel is looking for someone his passion for hiking, meditation, cold water swims and vegetarian living.

He is hoping to be matched with someone open minded, who shares his passion for the outdoors.

He says: "Married At First Sight UK is a big experience and quite nerve racking in many ways, however it is something that will allow me to shift my pattern in terms of relationships and it is a blessing to have the professional and scientific advice that will help me."

His new husband Matt, is a charity worker from West Yorkshire.

He signed up for the show after a messy break up, which left him feeling heart-broken and needing to re-discover himself.

Matt's dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2004, leading Matt quit his corporate career to work in the cancer charity sector instead.

He goes to choir practice and the outgoing guy once performed in a Take That tribute band.

Matt is keen to have kids and settle down, and says: "The reason I’ve come onto the show is because I’m really wanting to meet that special person that I can start building a life with and have a family. I’m really excited."

The show has taken inspiration from the Australian version this year, and all of the couples will be living in one house together.

Married at First Sight UK continues Tuesday night at 9pm on E4
