MAFS expert Melanie Schilling revealed the UK series is currently filming on This Morning. Alison Hammond asked the expert: “What about the UK version? Is that coming back?” to which Melanie responded: “Yes. We are filming it right now. I cannot say anything yet. It’s incredible. It’s a different level.”

The date for the new UK season has not been announced but it is expected to air in late August, similarly to last year’s season. Last year it was confirmed this season would have 37 episodes, longer than any UK season before.
