Married at First Sight UK’s Peggy unrecognisable in stint on rival dating show

Fans of Married At First Sight UK have been left in shock after spotting one of its current cast members appearing on a rival dating show more than a decade ago.

Peggy, who married Georges in this year's series of the E4 show, has history in trying to find love on television, having appeared on ITV dating programme, Take Me Out in 2012. Then 19, the Kent native looked unrecognisbale as she went head-to-head with 29 other ladies in a bid to woo one lucky guy.

Today, aged 32, Peggy is known for her blonde locks – a far cry from her youthful brunette appearance on the Paddy McGuiness fronted show. In the unearthed episode, Paddy refers to Peggy as "Pick Peggy", such is the fuss she makes over who to keep her light on for.

It appeared to pay off, however, as Peggy subsequently found herself chosen by "soccer-mad Scouser" Andrew, with the pair jetting off to the Isle of Fernando's on the northern coast of Tenerife. Describing the moment he saw Peggy, Andrew revealed: "She was good looking, my heart was pumping."

Later in the installment Peggy declared that the feeling was mutual, as she admitted Andrew was "as gorgeous as I remember – tall, handsome – words can’t describe how much I fancy the guy." Peggy went on to admit she was slightly taken aback after Andrew leant in for a kiss, but she added: "But I weren’t stopping him. I weren’t gonna stop him either, you know. Carry on."

Despite being described on their break by Andrew as "dippy" – something he liked – Peggy appeared to be smitten as she explained: "A guy has to be special for me to kiss them on the first date, but with Andrew something just clicked."

Peggy even went as far as stating that Andrew "ticked all the right boxes" and was "Mr. Right". Something clearly wasn't right though, resulting in Peggy starring on MAFS many years later. After noticing her on Take Me Out, one X (formerly Twitter) user wrote: "Wow she looks completely different hard to believe they are the same person."

Another commented: "She changed her entire persona as well as her exterior, wow." A third added: "I watched it – I think I vaguely remember this! She's very different now!" A fourth penned: "Blimey I’ve just watched 19 yr old student Peggy on her Take Me Out island date. She’s not the prudish Peggy we are seeing on MAFS!" And a fifth said: "She looks quite different but I thought there was something familiar about her."

Married At First Sight UK is on Channel 4 on weekdays at 9pm or catch up on 4 On Demand.

Last week, meanwhile, MAFS fans have witnessed the "most awkward moment ever" after Peggy told her mum that her husband Georges liked rimming. The couple were tasked with sharing some intimate dinner dates wither their respective family and friends to get to know each other better, but viewers were left gobsmacked by Peggy's revelation, which saw her mum ask what the term meant.

"Intimacy week came and we were all exciting I heard all about Georges liking rimming if you want me to go into the details," Peggy said. To which her sister replied: "Sorry – oh no", putting her head in her hands. Her mum then chimed in: "Rimming? What’s that? Peggy then said, "I don’t want to explain to mum what that is actually. During intimacy week I heard that my husband likes rimming – giving and receiving."
