Married at First Sight UK star Nathanial Valentino has revealed he wants his appearance on the show to promote open attitudes on love.
With the press launch getting underway, Nathanial previewed his time on the show, revealing he wanted his experience as a pansexual man to shine through.
"It was the chance to meet someone that I could fall in love with,” began Nathanial. "I'm a pansexual guy, I get put into this box every day of my life, the way I look, the way I talk, who I've been with, my job.
"You can get over them. But when society and the world questions what you love, they've got an opinion on what you love. I wanted to show this light that I've got inside to the rest of the world – that you can love who you want to love and that's it."
"I know I'm a good-looking lad, I'm not ugly, I'm not saying that as being big-headed but you'd think that it would be easy, and it's not. It becomes twice as hard," he added.
Nathaniel's co-stars have also teased their appearances on the show, with tennis coach Arthur revealing that he wasn't initially interested in the reality show.
"I actually haven't seen the show before, until I got in," he said. "They've contacted me once at the start of last year. I wasn't interested, and they contacted me again at the start of this year and I thought to myself, 'Let's go for it'. I'm ready to find the love of my life."
