Applications for Channel 4's immensely popular reality dating show Married At First Sight are now open as the broadcaster issues a casting call.

The series is based on a Danish show of the same name and matches couples based on scientific and sociological factors.

The selected couples then marry their chosen partner with no prior knowledge of the said person.

In a statement, the production company said that after "the success of our last series" they are looking for new participants to apply.

This comes after the Australian version of Married At First Sight ended with E4 teasing the return of the UK edition online.
