MARRIED AT First Sight’s Matt Jameson and Daniel McKee have finally confirmed where they will be moving – and they plan to officially take the plunge in the New Year.
The distance between the couple was one of their biggest hurdles on the Channel 4 show, but Leeds-based Matt, 39, has now agreed to relocate to Northern Ireland.
The happy couple also teased impending fatherhood six months after meeting – and immediately marrying – on the popular series as their relationship continues to go from strength to strength.
They appeared live from 28-year-old Daniel’s house in County Antrim for an interview on This Morning, and host Phillip Schofield asked if that was their final location amid the house hunt.
Matt explained: “We’ve been going between Northern Ireland and Leeds and we’re in County Antrim at the moment, but the plan is we are actually going to be finding somewhere to live and moving in together properly in the New Year, here in County Antrim.
“I’m moving – I’m making the move, we are going to be settling here!”
Phil asked how he felt about leaving his friends and family back in Leeds, with the TV star reasoning: “It’s actually not even that far away, the flight is only half an hour from Belfast to Leeds.
“We’re going to be going back and forth a little bit and we’ve been doing that already – all my friends and family are really supportive, they love Dan as well and are just so happy for me.”
Daniel added: “We’re even stronger now and that’s why we made the decision to move in together properly.”
His husband went on to say that one of the reasons he signed up to Married At First Sight is because he wants to be a dad, and despite their 11-year age gap, he and Dan are on the same page.
The pair revealed they’d spoken about children “quite early on”, and Dan feels more than ready to start a family – adding that they’ll also have “dog babies”.
Viewers previously feared that the couple’s struggle to settle on where they will live going forward will rip their relationship apart, but thankfully they were able to overcome it.
