Where Married At First Sight UK couples are now – bitter split over tattoo to savage public dumping & TWO babies | The Sun

IT'S one thing getting hitched to a complete stranger you've just met on a TV show – but making the marriage last is the real test.

The majority of past Married At First Sight UK contestants have sadly failed – but there have been some love stories along the way.

As the seventh series prepares to kick off this month, we reveal what became of some of the show's most memorable couples – from savage cheating scandals to baby joy.

Michelle and Owen

It was love at first sight for these two lovebirds, who tied the knot in season 5 in 2020.

They remain happily married now, and have even bought a house together.

The loved up pair even share an Instagram account where they post snaps of their life as a married couple.

After the show Michelle moved from Hastings to Sheffield to be with her man.

On their one year anniversary, Owen gave Michelle a diary he'd been keeping since they met on the experiment, inscribed with the words, 'I chose you', before getting down on one knee.

In a birthday post to him earlier this year, she said he was "an incredibly caring person who makes every day better".

As tumultuous break-ups go, it doesn't get much worse than this.

Ben and Stephanie were a solid fan favourite during the early stages of season three as they seemed to really hit it off.

It all came crashing down, however, when Ben revealed he'd got another woman pregnant before his stint on Celebrity Big Brother in 2018.

It was reported heartbroken Stephanie heard about their divorce in the news, despite him claiming they'd had a conversation before he announced it.

At the time, she said: "He was divorcing me. He had cheated on me. He was announcing it on the radio. There are very few moments in your life that truly rock you to your core."

To make matters worse, Ben admitted he'd cheated on Stephanie before they went on their honeymoon.

Ben is now pursuing a career as an actor and professional boxer, while Stephanie is living her best life showing fans pictures of her holidays on Instagram.

She also shaved her head in 2019 to raise money to help her friend who was battling cancer.

Verity and Jack

This relationship was perhaps doomed from the very beginning as Jack's dad infamously said Verity was not "attractive enough" for him.

They managed to put this behind them to enjoy a honeymoon in Tenerife, and appeared to be happy together.

The couple decided to stay married at the end of the show and revealed they had big plans of traveling together.

However, just three months after tying the knot, it emerged Jack had decided to call time on their marriage.

Explaining his reasoning, he said they "didn't have that connection" and hoped they could be friends.

Tayah and Adam

A huge success story from last year, it couldn’t have gone better for this couple, who now live together in Doncaster.

Tayah and Adam were the first ones to declare their love for each other while on honeymoon.

After a whirlwind romance Adam proposed at the end of the show, when they decided to stay married.

They now share a dog and are expecting a baby girl together.

It's not all been plain sailing – last month they were forced to flee their home after a terrifying wild fire broke out nearby.

Steph and Jonathan

Jonathan cemented himself as the king of savage break-ups when, after a few weeks together, he handed his new bride annulment papers stuffed inside a Christmas card.

The couple tied the knot in December 2018, but had a disastrous honeymoon in Spain.

However he clearly saw the errors of his ways and pleaded with her for another chance, though Steph refused.

In January last year, we revealed Jonathan was reportedly blocking the divorce and ‘refusing to let go’.

A source claimed it was a "nightmare" for Steph who just wants to move on, but they were still legally married.

Melissa and Clark

The season two couple had viewers in their corner in June 2016 as they seemed to be such a great match.

When Melissa started a new job in Milton Keynes, Clark found a flat in the area just be be close to her.

However they couldn't make it work and the couple divorced in November 2017 – having not seen each other for a year.

He moved back to London and later slammed the show, claiming its participants were "goaded" into having arguments by producers.

Kate and Jason

Their honeymoon in Ireland was short-lived after Jason Knowles cut it short in order to go back to work in London.

Three weeks after that, he was caught using Tinder, which was the last straw for Kate.

However he has since insisted he only joined the dating app after he realised their marriage was doomed – and scathingly revealed he never fancied her.

Having never consummated their marriage, it was annulled eight months later.

Shereen and David

For Shereen, one look at her new husband's tattoos on their honeymoon was enough to put her off – but the final nail in the coffin was him unpacking his stash of 30 condoms, burning scents and massage oil.

Deciding she'd seen enough, the pair went their separate ways and didn't bother to remain friends.

David, however, did jump to Shereen's defence when she admitted internet trolls attacked her accusing her of only joining the show to find fame.

He said: "Shereen has many wonderful characteristics and is a kind, positive person, an amazing mother with a good soul. She was simply hoping for a more spiritual not a logic thinker I guess [sic]."

Emma and James

Sexual incompatibility resulted in the breakdown of Emma and James' union after 34 weeks.

They were the last remaining couple of the first series to call time on their marriage.

In an interview, Emma said said the show had "ruined her life" as a lot of men refused to meet her after finding out she was on it.

"I had no idea about the long-term effects. When you are taking part, you are not thinking about 10 years down the line," she said.

Matt and Dan

Their inclusion on the sixth series was praised by the LGBTQ community, and made way for the first lesbian couple set to appear in the new series.

They instantly made a connection and declared their love on the show.

Their relationship has grown from strength to strength – they are still together a year on and Matt has made the move from Leeds to Northern Ireland.

Last month Dan said going on the show was the best decision he’d ever made.

He also revealed the couple are looking to get married again in the future.

Morag and Luke

Viewers always suspected Morag didn't care as much for Luke as he did for her last series.

She bluntly admitted she didn't find him attractive and had a huge dislike of his fashion sense.

After the show ended, Luke revealed Morag had ghosted him, leaving him gutted.

Luke now has a Cameo account where fans can pay for customised videos from him, while Morag works with a sexual wellness brand called Vush. 

Megan and Bob

Cheating on your new husband with his mate is probably not the best way to kickstart a marriage.

But that’s what happened last series when Bob discovered Megan had kissed Jordan, who was married to Alexis.

Although Bob tried to make it work, it all proved a bit too much for him and the pair called it quits.

But Bob was able to find love with someone else after the show.

Meanwhile Megan has gone back to acting, while Bob has taken up modelling. 

Ally and Paul

Although these two were paired for the show, they never actually met at the aisle due to the outbreak of Covid.

Desperate to meet the woman producers had matched him with, Paul begged producers to put him in touch with Ally – and good job too.

The pair hit it off immediately and Ally moved from Worth in West Sussex to Weston-Super-Mare to be with Paul.

They welcomed a baby daughter in July last year – a month after getting engaged – and chronicle their life together on Instagram and YouTube.

In interview, Ally said: "Paul and I were made for each other. From the moment we started chatting to each other it was obvious we were a perfect match."

They are still in touch with show expert Paul Carrick Brunson, who met their baby girl earlier this year.
