Don't Tell the Bride returns, narrated by Rebekah Staton

Don’t Tell The Bride is back, with a new series that includes a Game of Thrones-themed wedding and a bridesmaid who drops out on the day of the wedding. Gulp!

The popular E4 reality show returns to our screens on 1 September, with a new bunch of grooms waving goodbye to their brides-to-be for three weeks and planning their dream weddings on a £14,000 budget.

Most brides’ worst nightmare, the show is the ultimate cringe-watch, as we see these future husbands organise hen and stag dos, the ceremony and yes, even the dress, without their wives’ input. And this series, the drama looks to go up a notch, as one fiancĂ© attempts to hold his ceremony at a medieval castle and themed around the HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones. What could possibly go wrong?

To be fair, the roaring dragon does look pretty cool, although we are slightly less impressed by the wedding party dressed as knights… This wedding will join a long line of unusually themed weddings to come out of the show, including Beauty and the Beast, Peaky Blinders and, um, Titanic-themed ceremonies. Surely they were setting themselves up for failure with that last one?

Between a groom who forgets the rings, a bridesmaid who pulls out on the day and lots of crying, it looks to be a seriously explosive, stomach-turning series. We can’t wait to watch through our fingers in horror, then tell our SOs that they can NEVER do this to us.

Don't Tell the Bride returns Sunday 1st September at 9pm on E4, narrated by Rebekah Staton
