The new shocking twist is sure to shake things up in a season that has already seen blazing rows and cheating scandals.

This season promises even more conflict with the relationship experts getting into some "heated debates".

In an exclusive interview with Digital Spy, relationship expert Mel Schilling revealed that the panel of experts will also butt heads.

According to Schilling, she clashes with fellow expert Paul Brunson: "You'll see Paul and I having disagreements because we come from not only different cultures but different professional backgrounds as well."

"You get to see some examples of, particularly me, getting a little bit feisty, saying 'Actually I don't agree with that' and 'Let's talk about a different way of approaching this'."

"So yeah, it does. It gets professionally heated you might say. There's no fisticuffs… not on camera anyway!"
