Don’t Tell The Bride is FAKE – none of the couples on the show actually get married as services are ‘not legally binding’

REALITY show Don’t Tell The Bride has been caught up in a faking scandal after it emerged that couples do not actually wed on the programme.

The popular series, which this year moved to E4 from Sky, sees hapless grooms attempt to plan their big day with no help from their other half.

But contestants who appear on an episode this year revealed the ceremonies they plan are not legally binding.

And instead, each soon to be married pair are instructed that they will have to hold a separate wedding later in order to officially become man and wife.

One groom said: “It was written into our contract that our ceremony would not be legally binding and so we should go to a register office later.

“That is what we did. But we had no follow up from anyone from the show after the filming, so we could easily have avoided it and had the party for free.

“It makes a bit of a mockery of the process that the bride and groom go through this huge ordeal for a ceremony which isn’t even legal.”

Each of the couples who appear on the show are given £14,000 for the groom to plan their wedding.

And viewers gripped by the programme must wait to see if the bride agrees to go through with the ceremony once her other half’s choices are revealed.

A TV source last night claimed that the show was unable to film a legal wedding as the bride had to have seen the venue beforehand, and that staff accompanied each couple to declare their intent to marry.

And a spokeswoman for E4 said: “All contributors sign notice to marry for their legal ceremony in the presence of a production team member but before filming starts.

“An update or photos from this legal ceremony is shown at the end of each episode.”
