A student nurse is among the stars of a new series of the controversial reality TV show in which couples meet for the first time on their wedding day after being matched by experts.
Student nurse Melissa featured in the first episode of the second series of Married at First Sight, which aired on Channel 4 on Tuesday night.

Melissa, aged 27 and originally from Northamptonshire, was matched with business development manager Clark.
The programme covered the run-up to their wedding day and their subsequent marriage at Islington town Hall in London.
Later programmes in the series will see how they got on afterwards, as well as featuring more couples of strangers.
The premise of the programme is a social experiment in which a group of singletons put their trust in a panel of experts to find their “perfect match” and see if science can help them fall in love.
Once married, the newlyweds are then followed for five weeks after which they can decide to stay together or get a quickie divorce.
The reality television series is based on a Danish series. It has also been exported to the US and Australia.
