Fans of E4's Married at First will be looking forward to the new series set to begin this month as a contestant from Wiltshire attempts to find love.

According to E4, "the forthcoming series promises to be bigger and more dramatic than ever before", with reports saying they hope to have more episodes than last season, which featured 30.

At 36 episodes, this will be the largest series to date and the show’s longest-ever run.

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.

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.

So who is the contestant from Wiltshire?

Thomas, 27

Wiltshire, Investment Communications 

"This traditional, animal-loving gent is looking to find a soul mate who will accept not just him but his feline friends.

"Spending his teens living in Indonesia with his family sparked a passion in Thomas for travel and adventure.

"He is a gentleman whose love language is gift-giving, so he wants to find a lady who he can spoil and look after. Thomas is ready to flourish in a marriage and is excited to watch his bride walk down the aisle."

What's in store

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, for good.

Across the process, the couples will be matched and guided by returning experts Melanie Schilling, Paul C. Brunson and Charlene Douglas.
