A Wollongong woman is among a group of hopeful singles willing to marry a complete stranger on national television.

Photographer Poppy Jennings, 38, will participate in the new season of the hit reality show/social experiment Married at First Sight.

According to her bio, the Wollongong mother of two-year-old twin boys has "endured her fair share of heart-crushing disappointment when it comes to love".

Ms Jennings has already made headlines, thanks to the program's promo in which she says, "I've got two-year-old twins and when they were six weeks old, my husband had a terrible accident ... He tripped and fell into his co-worker's vagina and he's still stuck there".

"Her ex-husband left her for another woman when the twins were just six weeks old," her bio reads. "To add insult to injury, they now live in the area and Poppy regularly runs into them while doing her groceries."

Her bio also describes her as "self-deprecating, loud and funny".

"Poppy often uses comedy to hide her pain.

"She calls a spade a spade and makes no apologies for speaking her mind.

"Her number one priority are her sons, which has brought her to the experiment. She's not here to find just her soul mate, but a good and dependable man to be a role model to her boys."

On the show, relationship experts John Aiken, Mel Schilling and neuropsychotherapist Dr Trisha Stratford will pair 20 singles from across Australia, using a mix of neuroscience and their relationship expertise with the goal of creating 10 perfect matches.

Each couple will meet for the first time as they walk down the aisle on their wedding day, and from the moment they say "I do" their relationship is under the microscope as they experience the highs and lows of marriage at full speed.

Every couple will live together under the same roof, compare their experiences and ups and downs at dinner parties, and bare all to the group in the commitment ceremonies.

  • Married At First Sight season 7 premieres on Monday, February 3 on Channel 9.
