The UK format will also be switched up to align with the Australian version of the hit reality TV show, which will guarantee more drama.
The new series will also welcome the show's first ever gay couple.
Traditionally, the UK version of MAFS sees a maximum of four couples getting hitched and living alone in a flat as they figure out if they want to stay in or leave the marriage. The couples never meet each other and they are each asked once only if they're going to stay married or part ways.
But this year, the sixth UK series will adopt the Australian format of the show, which is said to bring some major competition to ITV's Love Island with drama guaranteed.
The Australian MAFS sees ten couples get married and then live in their own apartments for several weeks as they decide if they can go the distance. But the main difference is, the couples all meet on a regular basis at explosive dinner parties, to put each other's marriages under the microscope.
Describing the revamped UK series, E4 said: "After the ceremony and celebrations are over, true love is well and truly put to the test, as they embark on a luxurious honeymoon, before moving in with each other AND their fellow couples. Relationships will be put under the microscope, by fellow brides and grooms at weekly dinner parties - as well as by the experts, at recurring commitment ceremonies, where couples choose whether they want to stay in or leave the process.
"All this and more will build to a dramatic series finale: glossy, high-stakes vow renewals, in which each couple must decide if they will recommit to their partner or go their separate ways."
Lee McMurray, Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment, said: "I'm thrilled to be refreshing one of the portfolio's most popular brands for E4, bringing extra scale and ambition to what is already one of the most audacious and provocative experiments on television, and delivering what we hope will be the most exciting series yet."
"It is so exciting to be starting afresh on a supersized version of such a pioneering and successful series," said Murray Boland, Executive Producer for CPL Productions.
E4 has confirmed that MAFS will come to our TV screens on 30th August 9pm.
Casting for the latest MAFS began in February and applications are now closed for this year's show.
Aussie dating expert Mel Schillig has been flown in to help matchmake the UK singles and she told The Sun: "We have just begun filming the brand new series of Married at First Sight UK and oh my god, it is going to be incredible."
We can't wait!
