MARRIED At First Sight’s Luke got a shocked reaction from his mum when he told her what he was about to do on nationally telly.
The Cardiff-based firefighter, 36, revealed his mum’s opinion was “vitally important” to him in a preview clip from tonight’s show.
Luke was seen popping into his parents’ home as he sat his mum,
“My mum’s opinion is vitally important, so I’m actually bricking it,” he said in a voiceover.
As he sat opposite his parents on the sofa, Luke dropped the bombshell.
“I’m getting married to a complete stranger,” to which his mum covered her mouth in shock and looked over at Luke’s dad.
She said: “It needs to sink a little bit, I’ve got to be honest.”
But she later said to camera: “It’s gobsmacking, it’s absolutely gobsmacking.”
Luke is the whole package – a perfect gentleman with a lovely home, great job and a certified fire-fighter.
But his problem is that he can’t see it.
Left heart broken by his last relationship, Luke had his confidence crushed and has spent the last year rebuilding himself.
But now, he thinks he is ready to move on from his past heartbreak.
He is looking for someone who will love him for him.
“I already have more in common with this person than I would meeting them on dating apps or in the pub” he said.
He feels this as “they’ve done the same thing, they must be in a similar circumstance to me”.
