Married At First Sight: Reality show couple reveal baby plans after unconventional wedding

When Channel 4’s Married At First Sight saw relationship experts matching up singletons and forcing them to marry in legally binding ceremony.

Cameras then followed the couples for six weeks, before they decided whether or not to stay together - or file for divorce.

Unsurprisingly, the show was slammed by sceptics.

Director of pressure group Mediawatch-UK, Vivienne Pattison, said: "It makes marriage look stupid.

"Channel 4 is trumpeting this as a social experiment but it isn't - it's just after ratings.

"Family breakdown costs the UK billions each year. This is irresponsible."

However, while Kate and Jason called time on their marriage early after he was found to be active on dating websites, Emma and James are still VERY happy.

In a chat with the Daily Mail, the couple - who have now been married for six months - have said that they are even thinking about renewing their vows.

Emma said of her husband: "I adore James. We have great fun together.

“We have a very similar outlook on life and similar dreams.”

James, for his part, added that his wife is "absolutely great" and believes the marriage can go the distance.

"We're enjoying each other's company and I think this marriage has got every chance," he said.


The couple are even thinking about starting a family together!

Emma said: "James would have kids tomorrow if he could. He's a big family man. I'm the one holding back.

“But in another year or so, well, one may come along.”

She added firmly: “I’m excited about the future."

We may have been sceptical at first, but it seems as if getting Married At First Sight really worked for these two lovebirds.

Congratulations to James and Emma!
