The Nearlyweds

9pm Tuesday 6th December 2011 on BBC3

Two couples - Sam and Rachel from Wigan and Tony and Serena from Liverpool - have never met, but they do have one thing in common. They are both planning to tie the knot.

But are they marrying the right person? In this brand new format for BBC3 they're going to find out. Both couples take a close look at each other’s relationships.

They’ll spend time in each other’s homes, quiz their friends and families, assess each other’s wedding plans and join their respective hen and stag nights.

At the end of an intense week together, each couple will ´┐╝´┐╝deliver a verdict on the other couple’s relationship... two couples go from nearly weds, to really weds?
