A Darlington man is hoping to find love as he takes part in the new series of Married at First Sight UK.

Account manager Jordan, 29, is described as “a fun, outgoing guy with a massive sense of adventure” who owns his hone, has a ‘great’ job and is also spontaneous.

Viewers and fellow cast members have also been told to expect someone who does all his own cooking and is a self-professed “great catch”.

The popular TV show is due to return to E4 later this year, for what the show’s bosses say is a “brand new, bigger and bolder series”.

The new series will follow a fresh batch of singles, whose search for love and a happy-ever-after will lead them to saying “I do” to a complete stranger, whom they’ll meet for the first time on their wedding day.

The 29-year-old Darlington lad says he is open about his emotions and feelings, and is not willing to settle with someone and cruise through life for the sake of being comfortable.

“He wants to find true love and a real connection,” E4 said. “In the past it has been known for Jordan to overthink situations, and he is not someone to stick around if he believes someone isn’t right for him.

“He acknowledges that he’s single because he’s too particular about what he wants and knows he needs to relax and give girls more of a chance.”

Returning to bring their expertise to the matching process will be Mel Schilling, Paul C. Brunson and Charlene Douglas. In the 2021 series, the expert panel had an impressive success rate with two couples still together and one of those couples with a baby on the way.

Jordan’s appearance in the show comes after County Durham's Nikita Jasmine caused controversy last year.

The Seaham girl was embroiled in a scandalous exit after she was paired up with business development manager Ant Poole, 28, from Manchester. But it wasn't long before the reality star found herself amid drama.

After the couple enjoyed a honeymoon in Mexico, an incident took place during the filming of an episode featuring a dinner and Nikita was asked to leave the show.

In a statement from Married At First Sight UK, the show said Nikita had acted in a way which “breached” the “agreed code of conduct on behaviour”.

Married at First Sight UK is due to be aired later this year.
