Married at First Sight UK contestant Franky is set to ditch dating apps as he prepares to marry a stranger.
The 47-year-old strength and conditioning coach, who lives and works in Dubai, will make his entrance on the Channel 4 experiment tonight.
Show experts Paul C. Brunson, Melanie Schilling and Charlene Douglas have paired the military man with 36-year-old Marilyse – a personal trainer from Yorkshire.
But the pair won’t know if they have anything in common, or if they are each other’s types until they meet for the first time at the altar.
Franky, who has previously been married, is one of the stars hoping for an easy road to love.
In a teaser clip for tonight’s episode, Franky describes his Tinder profile as: “Fit, funny, [and] positive.”
He added: “What it says on the tin is what you get.”
Suggesting he wants to find a woman who can put up with his ways, Franky said: “I’m a very direct person. Life is short. Let’s get to the point and to the matter quickly. Of course, it gets me in trouble.”
It appears Franky, who is originally from Pontefract in Yorkshire, is not prepared to move from Dubai as he “absolutely loves it” – but if Marilyse is his perfect woman, he’ll be able to delete those dating apps once and for all.
In a previous VT, Franky revealed he is looking for a ‘petite and classy’ wife.

He said: “I used to look for the hottest girl in the room and I’ll hold my hand up to that.
“History has shown me that that isn’t a wife. The hotter girl comes with more drama and now at 47 years old (even though I feel 21 each day) I want to get someone who ticks the ‘wifey’ boxes.
“I want a classy person, not the drama. As long as she is petite and classy, I don’t care what she looks like. If we vibe, we vibe.”
Judging by Marilyse’s Instagram profile and her profession, she ticks all the boxes for Franky.
But will it be a fairytale ending for the new husband and wife?
