If you’re a man planning to tie the knot with your bride-to-be this year, do you have what it takes to plan the big day single-handed?

Producers of Don’t Tell the Bride - the show which sees the groom given three weeks to plan an entire wedding with no input from his other half - are looking for couples from Ipswich and the surrounding areas to take part.

The popular show, which is moving from BBC Three to a new home on Sky One, will see willing grooms given a new budget of £14,000 which they will use to plan everything for the perfect big day, from the venue to flowers, to the wedding cake and all important dress. The previous budget was £12,000.

Since the series launched nine years ago, over 100 weddings have been filmed both in the UK and around the world - some with hilarious and disastrous results.

Suffolk is no stranger to the series with an Ipswich couple featuring in series two and deserted military air base, Bentwaters Parks, used as the backdrop for a Men In Black themed wedding in 2013.
