The UK version of Married at First Sightis gearing up for a historic new season, marking a significant milestone in the series' journey towards inclusivity.

This groundbreaking eighth season will introduce its first openly transgender contestant, Ella, a 29-year-old clinic consultant hailing from Weston-Super-Mare. Besides Ella's quest for love, her casting also represents a remarkable moment for LGBTQ+ people in reality TV.

Ella, described by producers as a "blonde bombshell with a sense of humor and a heart of gold," is ready to embark on a life-altering journey. She's one of 16 brave souls who will take the plunge into matrimony with someone they've never met before.

Ella's connection with her grandmother – with whom she currently resides – is described as the "dynamic duo everyone needs in their life." This season's focus on love, relationships, and the bonds people share promises to be more diverse and dynamic than ever before.

The show's commitment to inclusivity is further exemplified by previous seasons that featured its first gay couple, Matt Jameson and Daniel McKee. In this year's installment, Ella, along with her fellow contestants, will be expertly guided by relationship gurus Melanie Schilling, Paul C. Brunson, and Charlene Douglas. Their journey will take them through the highs and lows of love as they embark on honeymoons and, ultimately, move in together.

This season promises to be the most extensive and captivating yet. Overall, fans are eagerly anticipating the "explosive" new season and the promised new format.

Married at First Sight UK season eight is coming soon to Channel 4.
