MAFS UK star Richie’s cringey reality TV past revealed – did you recognise him? | The Sun

MARRIED At First Sight's Richie Dews has appeared on TV before – breaking down in tears while looking for love on Take Me Out.

The reality star took part in the second series of the ITV dating show when he was 39 back in 2010.

Richie, now aged 51, bagged himself a date on Tasha after serenading her in the studio.

The pair seemed to hit it off after they enjoyed a water sports date and then went out for a romantic candle lit dinner.

Two men with guitars appeared and started playing the song that he played on the show, and Richie's emotions got the better of him.

As he wiped away the tears from his face, he said: "That's my song!"

As Richie opened up on camera, he burst into tears again.

Take Me Out – presented by Paddy McGuiness – ran for 11 series between 2010 and 2019.

The show featured one single man who would reveal himself to 30 women.

If they took a liking to him, they would keep their podium light on, but if they didn't want to date him, they'd turn it off.

After four rounds, the man would pick between the final two girls who he would like to date and they'd head off to the Isle of Fernando's for a romantic getaway.

Although Richie didn't find love with Tasha, hopefully his relationship with Lara Eyre will go from strength to strength.

The couple were paired together by expert Mel Schilling, Paul C Brunson and Charlene Douglas.

Last night many viewers pointed out that they think Richie looks like a very famous boyband member.

Viewers quickly pointed out a striking between Richie and Take That star Mark Owen.

One wrote: "Richie looks like all of Take That combined. #MAFSUK"
