The UK version is hosted by radio and TV presenter Joelah Noble - she has presented the Premier League’s digital series Uncut and has a weekly show on Rinse FM.

But what is Are You The One? UK, who are the contestants, and how can you watch it? Here is everything you need to know:

What is Are You The One?

Are You The One? first aired on MTV in the US in 2014 - it followed 20 singles, 10 men and 10 women, as they spent several weeks thrown together, trying to decide who is their ideal partner.

Producers have already determined who each singleton’s soulmate is, as they have been selected based on a scientific analysis of their suitability for each other.

However, the contestants don’t know who their ‘Perfect Match’ is, and over their time in the villa the person they fall for may not be the person that has been picked out for them.

The show has been a massive hit in the US and now it has found a home in the UK too.

Kelly Bradshaw, senior VP for MTV Entertainment Brands International at Paramount, said: “MTV’s hit reality formats continue to travel and resonate with audiences around the world across platforms. I can’t wait to bring this one to audiences this summer — they’re going to love it.”

If all ten couples find their Perfect Match before their time on the show is over, they will each win a share of £200,000.

Each episode, the contestants will vote to send one couple to the Truth Booth, to find out if they are a perfect match.

And, because this is where we are with reality TV now, there’s also a Boom Boom Room, where contestants can get to know each other more intimately,
