Meet Richie Dews, one among the batch of hopeful romantics on the new (Season 7) Married at First Sight UK that first aired on Channel 4 on 29 August 2022.
Richie, looking for love, was matched by experts Mel Schilling, Paul C Brunson, and Charlene Douglas to one among the 16 singletons. He, therefore, exchanged vows with a complete stranger as is tradition, in MAFS. The rest, if the experts got it right pairing him up, and more about him, we shall discuss in the rest of this writing called ‘Richie Dews Bio’.
MAFS UK: Are Richie Dews And Lara Eyre Still Together?
Amid being matched by the experts Richie Dews gets married to Lara Eyre during the first week of the show, on their first date.
So, together, Richie and Lara were hopeful about forming a connection. Are they still together? Here’s what we know.
Despite wanting things to end well, it did not exactly start well for this couple. After they get married, Richie admits that he lives at home with his parents, and this exchange does not go well with his bride.
In turn, Richie is also kind of not okay with Lara having kids. He admits to the camera that this is quite a big thing for him. He is also not being honest with Lara about this.
Considering all this and the “hostage situation” during the 6th September episode, fans seemed convinced Richie and Lara will be the first couple to split. Viewers were left cringing after Richie’s OTT attempts to woo Lara on their honeymoon. Yet some also hoped for the pair, with one writing. This lot thought Richie and Lara were adorable together.
Fast forward to now, Lara seemed to be leading her best life since leaving the show. She got a new tattoo and went back to her job as a waitress at a chicken shop in Nottingham while spending time with her two sons. And yes, she certainly did not appear to be in a relationship with Richie.
As for Richie, because of not being active on social media, we could not tell the same. He describes himself as deep, emotional, a good laugh, clever, and socially and emotionally intelligent.
When Richie first met Lara, he told her that he had never been in love before. “I never found anyone I thought ‘This could be it”, he had sworn.
