Chinese Kang Hu, 33, had his marriage arranged to Na Sun, 30, so the two had never met in the flesh before the ceremony. When he set his eyes on his future wife for the very first time, he deemed her to be too "ugly" to spend the rest of his life with and apologised to the poor bride before storming out.

He was later found floating face down in a river in Shiyan, China and, unconscious and fully-clothed, Kang was rescued from his attempted suicide.

Explaining his dramatic reaction, he was quoted in the Daily Star explaining: "She wasn't what I expected. Suicide seemed the only way out."
