Married At First Sight fans recognise Amy Christophers from Spencer Matthews’ The Bachelor


She tried her luck as a potential wife for Spencer Matthews in 2012’s The Bachelor.

And nine years later, Amy Christophers is still looking for a husband as she was spotted by eagle-eyed viewers of Married At First Sight during series six’s debut episode on Monday.

The 34-year-old worked as a topless glamour model in popular lads’ mags Nuts and Zoo under the alias Brandy Brewer before pursuing a career as a sports journalist.

Blast from the past: Married At First Sight fans recognised Amy Christophers from The Bachelor in Monday’s episode, having previously tried her luck as Spencer Matthews’s wife nine years ago 

The Channel 5 series saw 24 girls battle it out to win Spencer’s affections, exhausting all measures necessary to win him over with a sun-soaked South of France backdrop.

Eventually, former Made in Chelsea star Spencer, 33, found his his happily-ever after with Irish model Vogue Williams, 35, whom he tied the knot with in 2018 and shares two children.

Fast-forward to the present day, Amy told viewers to expect dramatic scenes from Married at First Sight’s spectacular return to the small screen.

The show sees singletons walk down the aisle with a total stranger – a risk which has historically ended in tears, infidelity, and chaotic screaming matches.

Speaking to The Sun on Tuesday, the Cornwall native said of her experience on the programme: ‘Married At First Sight makes Love Island look like Downton Abbey.’

She continued: ‘Expect explosive dinner parties, drunken commitment ceremonies with lots of tears and swapping spouses.

‘Sometimes I thought I was on that other programme Wife Swap,’ she added.

In the premiere instalment, viewers saw the women and men meet for the first time during their raucous stag and hen dos.

While the grooms-to-be discussed trying to find their dream match, the brides revealed they were looking forward to getting intimate with their partners, with Veterinary Nurse Morag, 31, revealing: ‘I need to learn to keep my legs shut.’

Meanwhile Amy, admitted to the other women: ‘My deal breaker was I need a f****** big d***.’

And the contestant revealed in her latest interview that she knew producers had listened to her request when she snuck an eyefull as her new husband got out of the shower.

The sports presenter also admitted that her parents refused to watch the first episode of the unconventional dating show which she claimed was a relief.

Amy explained she had given the show a lengthy list of requirements for her perfect match and specified they couldn’t wear brown shoes, boot cut jeans or any items designed by Super Dry.

Producers have tasked MAFS Australia’s dating expert Mel Schilling and Celebs Go Dating’s Paul C Brunson with the role of matching up the couples.

Mel revealed that she thought the UK version of the show might prove tamer than the scandalous Aussie series but admitted she had been completely proven wrong by the contestants.

Mel told the brides on Monday’s episode: ‘You’re essentially going to go through a fast tracked relationship.

‘Meeting, connecting, marrying, honeymooning, moving in together and all the stags of the relationship will be condensed. This is going to change your life.’

This year’s series has been revamped to follow the Australian format, and rather than legal marriages, the couples will make a lifelong commitment to one another at a glamorous ceremony, overseen by a wedding celebrant.

After the ceremony and celebrations are over, true love is well and truly put to the test, as they embark on a luxurious honeymoon, before moving in with each other and their fellow couples.

Relationships will be put under the microscope by fellow brides and grooms at weekly dinner parties – as well as by the experts, at recurring commitment ceremonies, where couples choose whether they want to remain in the process.

All this will build to a dramatic series finale: glossy, high-stakes vow renewals, in which each couple must decide if they will recommit to their partner or go their separate ways.
