In a statement on Twitter, E4 said: “We’re aware it’s yesterday’s episode of #MAFSUK playing out this evening and apologise. It’s all down to our ongoing tech issues which we’re working hard on. We’ll update here as soon as we know more and when you’ll be able to see the final episode of MAFS UK.
“To confirm, #MAFSUK and Afters won’t be playing tonight. We’re sorry again – we’re working to make it available on All 4 and E4 as soon as possible and we’ll update as soon as we know more.”
E4 then showed an episode of First Dates in the Married at First Sight slot instead.

Writing on Twitter, Married at First Sight Afters host AJ Odudu said the finale is “coming soon”.
The finale and the afters show will air tonight (Friday) on E4. The episodes will be available on All 4 shortly after transmission and Monday’s scheduled reunion special will not be impacted, the channel said.
A spokesperson for E4 said: “Following the incident at the weekend, ongoing technical issues have meant that Thursday night’s episode of Married At First Sight UK was a repeat from Wednesday September 29. We apologise to the fans of the show and have worked hard to get the episode to you this evening at 9pm.
“We hope that when you finally watch it you can find out whether Amy and Josh, Tayah and Adam and Morag and Luke renew their vows.”
