E4 orders Blue Therapy series for more dramatic couples therapy

Blue Therapy 2 will follow more young and larger than life couples on their quests to overcome the turbulence in their relationships and ‘situationships’ through therapy.

The original creator of the YouTube series, Andy Amadi from Trend Centrl and Motion Content Group, will co-produce the E4 series.

No topic will be off limits as the couples work on their relatable but divisive relationship issues, from income inequality to sexual satisfaction and what to do when your partner’s family disapproves.

The rebooted medical series will feature new doctors Dr Jane Leonard, Dr Anand Patel and Dr Tosin Ajayi-Sotubo. 

Together they will examine, advise, and offer up treatments for the patients’ medical mysteries, while also helping to destigmatise and remove the shame many feel about common conditions that are often ignored and go untreated. 

The doctors will focus on major health and sexual health problems, with help from famous faces who will partake in a series of stunts to get the nation talking about these issues.

Critics might argue that the global reality show Married at First Sight makes a mockery of marriage. But, perhaps, behind all the make-up, fake tans, glamorous honeymoons and emotional drama sits a programme that, ultimately, provides people with the opportunity to find love and friendship.  

An RTS Futures event in October heard how the UK version of the show, launched originally on Channel 4 in 2015, evolved in its latest, sixth series into a beefed-up incarnation on E4, where it has become the channel’s most successful show of 2021.
