The couples were matched back in January, and the weddings took place in mid-March.

This means the couples were forced to isolate together when the UK went into lockdown.

Michelle and Owen, therefore, were given the length of the lockdown to decide whether they wanted to stay married or get divorced.

Married at First Sight continues on Tuesday 13 October on Channel 4 at 9.30pm.
