One of the contestants on the upcoming season of Married at First Sight UK has revealed that there was a specific part in the selection process that made him emotional.

27-year-old Daniel had a good cry once he received the long-awaited call from the production team.

"I was crying! I had a good blubber! They told me that they had some good news and they told me that I had a match," he said.

"You don't really expect it as it is one thing applying for a show and it has been months of interviews, questionnaires and meetings. You get to a point where you think nothing is going to come from this, there isn't going to be a match for me.

"So when they said that they've found me someone, it was so overwhelming. There is someone out there that wants the same as me and is ready to go on this journey."

Daniel also revealed that he is "excited" at the idea of marrying a stranger.

"To be honest with you, I kind of get off on it. I think it is a really exciting experience. It is something that you'll only ever experience once. To give yourself wholeheartedly to a process is very exciting, it's crazy and it is positive," he said.

"There are a huge mixture of emotions, but on the whole it feels right. I'm very spontaneous in terms of saying yes to things and doing things that make my heart feel happy."

Daniel also admitted to knowing nothing about his upcoming wedding day.

"I've no idea, I don't even know where it is. All I know is what I'm wearing and who is coming from my side," he said.

"As I say, I get off on this kind of thing and embracing the process. I am not one to be a perfectionist, so it is the energy, the people, the place and the experience that makes it."

Married at First Sight UK will return to E4 on August 30.
