Married at First Sight returns to our screens tonight with one of its most emotional stories yet.

Grab the hankies as the oldest people to take part in the show in the UK will walk up the aisle and meet each other for the first time.

Shareen, 47, is a mum to three grown-up daughters and lives in Llanelli, Wales. She's set up with David, a 56-year-old sales director from Solihull.

  • Lauren Goodger puts on brave face after Katie Price ‘sends her warning’ over ‘dating Charles Drury’

While Shareen has never been married before, David's first marriage lasted ten years and he has two older teenage children.

In the lead up to their meeting at the altar, we'll see the nerves building for Shareen as she gets ready to meet David for the first time. She also tries on wedding dresses, getting advice from her grown-up daughters.

And no one can fail to be moved when she gets upset while waiting for the ceremony.

Beautifully made up and in her bridal silky dressing gown, Shareen says: "I will have no doubts when I'm saying my vows. It's not the marriage element I'm nervous about, it's … meeting David. It's like he's there within grasp now. Hopefully it's a happy ever after – it's something I truly truly want.

"And I am actually nervous for the first time because I want this so much to be a success and I've invested 100 percent now. This is my time – I'll always be the girls' mum and now more than a mum – I'm going to be a wife."

It's a great kick off to the new series.

Amazingly, over 7,000 applicants were whittled down to four brave singles through rigorous interviews and psychological tests. Then they put their trust in a panel of matchmakers to help them find 'the one'.

And if you still need more Married at First Sight, settle down for a binge watch and try the Australian version, which is gripping the nation on All4. Just prepare to go to bed much later having promised you'll watch 'just one more ep'…

Last year's series of Married At First Sight didn’t work out too well for couple Steph and Jonathan.

Steph, 28, reportedly split from property manager Jonathan, 39, just days after their wedding aired on the controversial programme.

Friends of Steph previously branded the relationship "the worst match" amid claims the pair can’t bear the sight of each other – and now it’s been reported they’re blaming the editing of the show for making Steph look bad.

And while many thought it was the right decision, Steph faced major backlash online for her attitude towards their marriage on the show.

Married at First Sight is on Tuesday at 9.30pm on Channel 4
