Married At First Sight UK bride Nikita has been slammed by viewers following her awkward wedding ceremony.
The popular E4 reality series returned to screens on Monday (August 30), as 16 new singletons joined the experiment to find love.
During the show’s first episode, viewers watched on as Nikita and Ant tied the knot.
Married At First Sight UK returns to E4
The 27-year-old saleswoman made a lasting impression as she made her debut last night.
Speaking to expert Paul Carrick Brunson, the Geordie went on to list her ideal man.
Nikita said: “I’ve got to be with someone really hench. So they’ve got to have, like a big back, big shoulders, big arms, and also big legs.
“Six foot, green eyes, tattoos is a bonus, and veneers. Love veneers.”
She added: “Alright, you know what I’m gonna say as well? They’ve got to have a tan.”
However, Nikita appeared far from impressed as she met her match for the first time.
The saleswoman was paired with Ant, a 28-year-old model and business development specialist from Manchester.
Following their wedding ceremony, Nikita fumed: “They’ve just done the total [bleeping] opposite of what I’ve asked for.
“I mean obviously I was talking about looks quite a lot. Looks was a huge thing to me and I don’t think they’ve listened to what I said.”
Viewers slam Nikita
MAFS UK viewers rushed to Twitter to comment on their awkward meeting.
One said: “Feel sorry for Ant. He’s got no idea how much of a rude, belittling woman he’s been matched up with. Nikita is vile.”
Another added: “Anyone else find it so disrespectful that Nikita was swearing all the way through her wedding and the after party.”

A third shared: “Nikita #MAFSUK is an amalgamation of Cyrell and Ines from #MAFSAustralia just awful!”

“Thank you so much to everyone for your unbelievable support so far! My phone is blowing up with messages, I can’t reply to you all but I definitely see you.”
Nikita went on: “I can’t stress this enough that @e4mafsuk is a reality show and it is edited completely for YOUR ENTERTAINMENT!
“Myself and Ant hand on heart had a great day filming our wedding as did our friends and family that got on like a house on fire.
“They have to dramatise things to make it look extra & juicy so you are at the end of your seat eager to see more! Unfortunately they didn’t show much of our good bits but anyone at the ceremony can vouch it wasn’t as harsh as it looked! I’ve always been an honest person & true to myself.”
