by Carl Smith |

We might have a while to wait until Married At First Sight Australia season 7 hits the telly box (boo), but the MAFS drama keeps a-comin' as the UK version of the show announces a major shake-up.

Yep - fresh from the success of the Aussie version of the show, no-nonsense expert Melanie Schilling will join returning star (and definitely-still-on-Celebs Go Dating fave) Paul C. Brunson on the next UK series; landing on E4 later this year.

Explaining how she's gonna spice up the new UK series - which is set to incorporate elements of the Australian format - Mel said, " "I am so excited to join the super-sized UK version of our much-loved Married At First Sight.

"Being a part of the Australian experiment for 7 seasons has taught me so much about love, marriage, relationships (and conflict) and I can't wait to share my advice and insight with you all. I have been overwhelmed by the UK response to the Australian version on E4 and have been humbled by all the beautiful messages of support from the UK fans of the show."

Babes, we cannot WAIT to have you on board.
