Channel 4 is ‘set to reboot an iconic wedding reality show after TEN years away from screens’
Four couples could get the chance to say ‘I Do’ on TV, and win a lavish honeymoon in the process, as Channel 4 is reportedly rebooting an iconic wedding show.
The broadcaster is said to be bringing back reality series Four Weddings, which sees a quartet of brides and grooms rank each other’s nuptials.
It comes after a ten-year hiatus for the series, which originally aired on Sky Living from 2009 to 2013 in the UK, inspiring the US version to debut in 2009 too.
With a glossy new revamp, sources tell The Sun that the show is set to go into production later this year.
Noting the success of smash hit shows such as Married At First Sight, insiders believe that this has sparked the interest of producers.

A source told the publication: ‘Producers have seen the success of Married At First Sight and are looking to make Four Weddings a hit with even more drama than the original.
‘Everyone loves a wedding show, especially after the success of Don’t Tell The Bride.’
Adding that casting agents are currently on the hunt across the UK for their brides and grooms, the scope is said to be even larger the second time around.
With a hope to add a mix of both different and same-sex marriages into the show, casters are said to be looking for some characters to bring the drama and fun.
MailOnline has reached out to Channel 4 for comment.
The show typically sees four couples get the chance to see how their weddings stack up against each others.
They are followed by a camera crew while attending one another’s wedding days, before voting on which one was the best – in a format similar to other Channel 4 shows Come Dine With Me and Four In A Bed.
Whichever couple wins then gets the prize of a lavish honeymoon on the house, being whisked away on the trip of their dreams.

One celebrity edition of the show even showed Steps’ Faye Tozer tie the knot with her husband Michael Smith.
Speaking out on her decision to do the show, Faye admitted that she was approached and her wedding just so happened to have already been planned for the show’s timeframe.
The 2010 episode also showed Big Brother’s Pete Bennett marry his former partner Gemma Rattus, while Eastenders actress Carol Harrison also had her big day on the show.
But it was glamour model Michelle Marsh who took the win during the show as she renewed her vows with footballer Will Haining in a lavish ceremony, with the prize money donated to charity.
