Mel will be joining returning Celebs Go Dating guru Paul C. Brunson for the brand-new UK series, which promises to be just as, if not more, explosive than the Aussie version.
“I am really looking forward to joining forces with my fellow *Relationship Expert*, @paulcbrunson (as I'm a huge fan of Celebs Go Dating!) and together I know we are set to shake up the UK conversation about matters of the heart - I just hope I can decipher all those different accents!” Mel penned.
Both experts will be handed the task of matching couples from a group of singles who are hoping to find love, and mentoring them throughout the experiment.
The new version of the UK series will also have its drama-filled dinner parties and commitment ceremonies, much like the Australian show.
The 49-year-old relationship expert also reassured fans that the new gig will not see her leave her current seat on the panel Down Under.
”But don't worry - I'm not leaving @MAFS Australia - this is where it all began for me and I couldn't be more committed to continuing the journey with @johnaikenlive and @alessarampolla !!”
The same could not be said for former expert Dr Trisha Stratford, who left the show ahead of the current running season, after she said that she was left feeling “sick” because the direction of the show was becoming toxic for the contestants and their mental health.
“By the end, I couldn’t compromise my professional and personal standards because there were participants on the show who I felt shouldn't have been there,” she revealed to Woman’s Day New Zealand.
She continued: “If someone gets through the critical selection process, when we say we don't want them on the show because they're quite fragile, they're not going to do well after the show.”
We can’t say fans of the show were left too surprised by those allegations, as each season seems to cross the line just a little more every year.
The show in the UK has already begun casting for the upcoming series, and the news comes after E4 announced that Married At First Sight Australia season seven will air in the UK this summer.
