Married At First Sight star Mel Schilling has revealed the 2024 Australian season will be filled with more drama than ever before.

The hit reality show is soon set to return to screens as season 11 gets its UK debut on E4.

Teasing ahead to the upcoming episodes, Schilling revealed she was stunned by the "abhorrent and inappropriate" behaviour showcased by some season 11 cast members.

In a recent interview, the relationship expert explained how the new season differs to its predecessors and confessed some moments left her "literally gobsmacked".

"In other seasons, I think we've had one really fascinating, interesting story running through where there's been a couple of key players and everyone's been really focused in on what's going on in their dynamic," she told Yahoo Lifestyle. "But this time, it's like there's so many different little subplots going on.

"There are so many interesting dynamics that happen between people that you wouldn't even expect."

Further detailing the chaos and drama fans will see play out on-screen, Schilling called out the bad behaviour exhibited by some of the cast.

"Sometimes I think I've heard it all and then one of these participants opens their mouth and something completely unexpected comes out," she explained. "I think, 'Wow, I didn't think it could get any worse and there it is'.

"There’s a number of people who behave in ways that are absolutely abhorrent and inappropriate and cross boundaries that just should never happen in any social environment."
