FILMING on the upcoming series of Married At First Sight UK has been thrown into chaos after bosses introduced a shocking new twist.
In a first for the homegrown version of the show, two 'intruder' couples will gatecrash the series halfway through, sending shockwaves through the experiment.
Fans of Married At First Sight Australia will have seen this curveball before, as that version is famed for bringing in new couples later in the series to spice things up.
A source tells The Sun: "Bosses loved how much drama it caused on the Australian show and decided this was the perfect time to bring this twist into the UK version."
And our insider reveals it's created havoc as the two new pairs cause some major fireworks, leaving the rest of the cast who have been there since the beginning of filming reeling.
The source adds: "All hell breaks loose when the new couples come into the show. It was a complete surprise for the other brides and grooms and to say they weren't happy about the blindside is an understatement.
