A Grimsby born model is set to take part in the latest series of Married At First Sight UK.
Brad Skelly, 27, will appear in the show, expected to be aired later this month, which brings together two random strangers who are on the hunt for love and marries them off before following them to see whether it works or falls flat on its face.
Going into its seventh series, the cast are made up of people from all over the country, some of whom are best friends with people who have already appeared on the show. This year’s edition will also feature the show’s first trans bride along with Grimsby‘s very own Brad.
However, Brad isn’t new to the camera having appeared on Channel 4’s Celebs Go Dating where he hit it off with Geordie Shore icon Charlotte Crosby. Announcing the line up on Instagram, the Married At First Sight team said: “Ex party boy Brad is manifesting his perfect partner who can share his love of spirituality.”
In a short video introducing Brad, he said: “I would leave my wife for Megan Fox, in Transformers 2 though, because she’s got a tan. I would most definitely not walk down the aisle if my wife made baby noises.
“It is a massive ick of mine and I cannot bear it when people do that. I just want the ground to swallow me up when they do that.”
He added: “I would make the perfect husband because I am loyal, I’m genuine and I’m kind-hearted. On my wedding day, I’ll be most nervous about my mum and sister’s reactions and opinions.
“They are both very, very strong, independent women, and sometimes it can clash with my opinions and views. I hope my new wife is open to spirituality.
“Due to being a meditation teacher, it pulled me out of a very dark place and it enables me to really accept the flow of the universe as it is.
“I deserve love because, in the past, I have always been trying to find it externally within somebody else. Now I’ve found it within myself, I really want to share that with somebody who has a strong connection.”
He also let the public in on one of his bad habits. He said: “Something I do that my wife might not like is sometimes within me explaining spirituality it can be condescending or patronising.
“So maybe if she’s holding something back, or consumed by her ego, she might get defensive about things I’m trying to help her with.”
