A WORCESTER man will appear on the latest series of a popular Channel 4 dating show.

George Roberts, 40, will be in the latest series of Married at First Sight.

The series is a social experiment where single people, matched by experts, marry total strangers, who they meet for the very first time on their wedding day.

A statement shared on the Channel 4 website reads: "Dad-of-four George is generous, loyal and dedicated to his kids.

"After divorcing from his wife, George has struggled to find that special someone who he can share his life with.

"He loves his life in the countryside and lives with his two eldest children, whilst his two younger daughters live with their mother.

"George is content with everything in his life, but there’s something missing - he hopes the relationship experts can solve this for him.

"George is a true and old-fashioned romantic and was heartbroken when his relationship with his wife broke down. He wants someone who excites him, someone to keep him on his toes and who can be open emotionally."
