New series Married At First Sight asks whether science can help us fall in love by matching people and only letting them meet for the first time at the altar.

Over 1500 applicants have been whittled down and carefully assessed by a panel of experts in psychology, social and evolutionary anthropology, and theology.

The three highly compatible couples prepare to enter the legally binding contract of marriage – with a complete stranger. We'll follow them down the aisle – if they even make it – and for the first five weeks of marriage. Will anyone make it to six weeks?
