'Five weeks ago, eight hot couples entered this Manchester mansion.'
I think I'm genetically blessed.
BOTH: We are 100% awesome.
I was voted the top 10 best looking South Asian male.
Competing for a life-changing joint modelling contract.
I'm not looking for two separate models, I'm looking for a couple.
But looking the part was never going to be enough.
There's no point investing in a couple that don't have a strong relationship
because they'll break up and leave us high and dry.
This show is 50% about relationships.
Yeah, and 50% about models.
-I love you!
-'So, as well as a series of modelling challenges...'
PHOTOGRAPHER: I can't see your face.
-God, they're see-through!
-Shove that whole thing up your backside!
Their relationships were put under the microscope.
We just belong together.
EMMA: The couple that we chose have got to have
a relationship that will stand the test of time.
One by one, the weakest couples fell by the wayside.
The couple who are going home is... Ben and Sam.
Mun and Rachna.
Leroy and Chloe.
Alison and Vaughan. We're going to send you home.
Now three pairs are battling it out
for the contract with a top model agency.
-Made it to the final!
-Going to try and win it.
We're in the final! I'm so excited.
-It's now about winning.
Friendships count for nothing.
You know you don't really want to do, it because if you did, you'd do it.
As they compete to be crowned...
Where are they! Come on!
..Britain's hottest couple.
The couple that are going to win this competition are...
Last time, Australian ballroom dancers Alison and Vaughan
fought hard to stay in the contest.
Check out my guns! Literally.
But while they passed the compatibility test with flying colours...
-What are you most scared of?
-She is most scared of me dying before her.
-Vaughan dying first.
The public didn't think much of their look.
They look quite frigid and a bit tense.
-And after another poor photo shoot...
-I am confused.
Is it comedy, isn't it comedy? You are little bit over the top.
The judges said g'day to the born-again Christians.
That leaves three couples to fight it out for the modelling contract.
Super-vain Stuart and Helen.
Jay and glamour model Beki.
And feisty Damien and Chanel.
And this week, it's their commitment that will be tested to the max.
Commitments to yourselves,
commitment to each other as couples, and commitment to modelling.
When it comes to modelling, they'll have to show the judges
they've got what it takes to be the next big thing.
To me, it's got cheese written all over it.
And in the relationship test, Emma will find out
if they are truly committed to each other.
The art of having good relationships is all about being natural.
And just when it couldn't be tougher,
they'll have to take part in the most terrifying challenge yet -
a bride and groom catwalk show.
They haven't done anything in front of a live audience yet.
It could be pretty chaotic.
Just going to whip up a little bacon sarnie, I think.
After five weeks of gruelling challenges,
the pressure is on.
But the time for talk is over.
The competition is just so intense now.
-Everybody has retired to their rooms.
-Want to be on their own.
The conversation is not as much, you know.
You just want to win. Because you have got here now.
And you don't want to come third, you don't want to come second.
You just want to be first.
Living this life, is obviously amazing.
The big house, getting everything you kind of want, so the thought
of going back to like, a one-bedroom flat in the East End is like...
It makes you feel sick.
Any little mistake or slip-up can cost us from winning that prize.
So I think it's good to be confident,
but also we're aware
that we still need to work our arses off if we want to win.
But the time for talk is over.
Because their mentor, model agent Jonathan Phang,
has arrived to reveal their next photo shoot.
A modelling challenge
that will call on all the skills they have learned so far.
Your task tomorrow is to deliver that one image that embodies you.
It is your signature statement.
You've got your work cut out and I will see you tomorrow. See ya!
This is the hardest challenge I think, guys.
Over the last five weeks,
the couples have had to express emotions,
get down to their underwear, and even dance.
Come on, then. Shoes.
But what will they do for the image that is supposed to encapsulate
who they are and what their relationship stands for?
Get your stripy jacket.
-I haven't got a stripy jacket.
-You have! I bought you one.
Yeah, like that, that's it. There you go.
Unlike, Helen and Stuart, who are thinking about what to wear,
Damien and Chanel are trying to come up with a pose
that sums them up as a couple.
# There's nothing wrong with loving who you are
# She said, cos he made you perfect, babe... #
I would definitely say our relationship is edgy,
always on the edge, but to me, it keeps it interesting.
What happened to ladies first?
The youngest duo have had their fair share of fall-outs.
The main thing I do to know what size it is, is this.
Starting when Damien bought the underwear for their lingerie shoot.
Oh, my God, they're see-through!
Is purple not your favourite colour, then?
Realistically, you are the only couple who argued,
who showed us any reason to remove you from this competition.
But determined to win the modelling contract, the pair fought back.
Yes, that's good!
With every week that has passed, they've grown stronger as models.
You nailed it. I mean, it was perfect for you.
Guys, these look great.
It has been a really good progression of you as models but also, working together.
But when it comes to their relationship,
there's one thing that keeps rearing its ugly head.
There's more fire in your relationship you are letting out.
And that is going to cause a problem.
Not too sure if Damien is telling the truth
when he says that he was fine with Chanel getting all up with everyone when she was modelling.
-You worry me around jealousy. Chanel worries me.
And the compatibility test confirmed Emma's reservations.
If you had to select an individual that you most fancied...?
-As in, in this house?
-I said no-one.
-I said Beki.
Are you going to kill me?
Can you talk to me, please?
-Is she much better?
But Damien's plan is to use their fiery nature to their advantage.
I think in the photos you should look quite fierce.
Try and look quite fierce. Sexy, but fierce. That's what you are.
In Jay and Beki's room, things are a lot quieter.
So what are we going to go for?
I think the thing that we need to show is versatility.
Jay and Beki have proved that opposites attract.
We think we're two peas in a pod.
You look great, but you don't look like a couple in modelling terms.
From the start, they haven't looked right together.
Stay still, please!
While Jay has proved he can model, Beki has had her shortcomings.
It's a full-length gown on a five-foot-three girl.
It is absolutely drowning her.
-How tall are you, Beki?
-Five foot three.
-How tall are you, Beki?
-I am five foot three.
-I think you're smaller.
But Beki was out to prove that good things come in small packages.
I was dominating him, biting him.
And she showed the judges that when she turns it on for the cameras,
they look great together.
I want to prove that I am versatile and I can do everything.
Beki, you look amazing. What I like is, like, you have saved her.
Your body language is really good with each other. You can see you are a couple as far as I'm concerned.
I don't know what it is with that.
This is Jay and Beki's opportunity to prove
they can complement each other as models.
Don't tell me you don't like it.
No! I'm just thinking, do we need to be more creative?
But they can't even agree on what they should wear.
What if it is in lingerie?
-Got to look hot, nice body.
-Yeah, but we've done lingerie.
Picture's got to sum us up.
-Do you know what I mean?
-Exactly. So how would you...?
Stuart and Helen are taking their preparation seriously.
-And we'll practise. Just start doing stuff.
-I am doing stuff.
-You're not doing stuff.
-I am. I'm going to be looking...
-I've got to look to camera.
With my genetics, and Helen's genetics,
our kids are going to take over the world.
Stuart and Helen were the most experienced models in the competition.
For us, we have both come into it thinking, "It's a job." It's a job for us.
When it comes to looks, it was as if they were made for each other.
But their relationship showed signs of weakness.
We never say, "I love you," to each other, ever. Cos we hate it.
Everyone says it, so we hate it, so we never say it.
If you love each other, you love each other.
I think you're so affected.
And it wasn't just their relationship
that left the judges baffled.
They're expecting everything to go perfect
and it hasn't gone perfect, has it?
In front of camera, Stuart's confidence has slowly slipped away.
-I'm putting a sock down there. Too right.
-There you go.
That will do me.
Look at Helen, she looks amazing. And I... Is it me who's being awkward?
-You're not giving me much variation here.
-Can't see any expression.
I know I can do better than that. I know I can do it.
-I hate it.
-Well, you're in the wrong job, then.
At the end of the competition,
-and you're still not confident in front of the camera.
Confidence is probably the biggest key,
-and we do need the brand to be hugely confident.
But despite their problems, they've made it to the final,
because, quite simply, they look great together.
Look at them, they look so happy together.
I like their style, I like his hair.
You looked like you were a couple, like you could be on holiday.
Good photo. You look great together. I'm happy.
Stuart and Helen clearly have lots of potential.
But will they realise it in time to win the contract?
It's the day of the photo shoot...
Maybe you're, like, gagging me somehow,
like stopping me speak with your hand or...something.
I don't want to cover your face.
..and Stuart and Helen have woken up with an idea.
We come up with something now that we think is quite good.
It is reflective of our personalities, to be honest.
It's now or never. There's no better time to peak than the final.
And they aren't the only ones who seem confident with their plan.
We are really set on just really smashing it today.
It's kind of the thing...
We're kind of taking a risk in what we're doing.
If we get it right, it will be amazing.
We're definitely over-thinking this.
I know. It's because it's so much pressure.
That just leaves Beki and Jay,
who still haven't come up with something
they are totally happy with.
Oh, it's so hard.
'If we fail at this one, it can ruin everything'
and all our hard work, so it has got a lot of pressure riding on it.
That's why we've really gone...
We've probably over-thought things a little bit.
But thinking time is up,
because across Manchester,
their photographer has arrived at the studio.
This man will try to turn the couples' ideas into reality.
Right, bring it on.
Let's see what they've got.
And it's the infamous Nicky Johnston.
Don't you two smile? It's totally unprofessional. Smiling! Good.
This isn't the first time the couples have encountered Nicky.
Can I see teeth?
And they know not to get on the wrong side of him.
I hated every single minute of it.
But will he like their ideas?
Have you given up already? Look at you.
Oh, Jonathan, I'm trying to get my head into the zone.
-Are they going to turn up with some hideous prop?
-I hope not.
THEY BOTH LAUGH
When the judges look at their picture, you know,
it has to be made clear
that if it's absolutely crap,
it's nothing to do with me.
First, the finalists must explain their concepts to hair and make-up.
We literally listed everything.
Good. So you've made the list?
All the angles that we need to hit. Hopefully, we've got it right.
Nobody else has done this.
While Stuart and Helen are all about attention to detail,
Damien and Chanel have an ambitious master plan.
It's kind of like
you have to go through the rain to get to the rainbow.
-So on Chanel's eye, one eye...
-Just like a rainbow.
Three different colours to represent a rainbow.
And, on mine, teardrops, but they also represent raindrops.
'I think Damien and Chanel, their story is so complicated'
I can't see how anybody is going to understand it
from looking at a picture of a tear and a rainbow. I really can't.
So what you're giving us are very practical references
that we can try to adhere to.
Helen and Stuart have got all these sheets, which were great,
because they came with a bit of inspiration for the photographer and hair and make-up.
But there's like 20 of them.
It should be, really, maybe one or two.
I'm not convinced that the styling is going to do them any favours.
And Beki and Jay, who have struggled to come up with an idea,
have opted for something simple.
-It's still me, so bigger volume hair, quite simple make-up, plain.
-Yeah. Maybe lashes, but, like, natural ones.
-So if I go simple make-up, it goes with his look as well.
I'm a bit concerned with Beki and Jay, actually.
My gut is telling me they're not going to be compatible.
She needs to look modern.
And they just seem to be coming from two different places.
-First, it's Damien and Chanel.
It's going to be a lot of us connected together, though, touching.
-Very close. Yeah.
-I've got quite the angry face
-and we both are quite fiery people.
-Yeah. Are you rowing all the time?
-We have a few tiffs.
They want to capture their intense connection on camera.
But will the simple background and subtle make-up designs
create the image they're looking for?
We've got to look at that and believe that you're desperate for her.
Even though you've just had an enormous row, probably, downstairs.
That'll be after. That'll be after.
# I see you looking, yeah, you looking over my way... #
Imagine you're at home.
That's what we want.
-Fabulous. Let's have a look at that.
-That's the kind of arm I want.
In this challenge, the couples have complete control
and that means selecting which photo will go before the judges.
And there's over 100 to choose from.
As soon as you click on the image and it's on screen, you go, "That's the shot."
But I have got a fear...that they're going to choose the wrong picture.
It's like every good face you have, I...
-Oh, God, don't have a row.
This challenge was the hardest challenge we've had set to us.
It's because you didn't know whether you had the right position, if your posture was right,
you just couldn't get that feedback, so you just didn't know what way to go, what to do.
-Hold onto it.
-This is going to get rid of bags?
-Yes. Hold it on.
I wonder how Damien and Chanel got on.
Next it's Jay and Beki.
I don't think you should worry about that.
Just worry about our own performance.
In three words, could you sum up what you think you want the picture to say?
-Fun-loving. That's what we are.
-All happy? OK.
Well, you go and iron that top, which is rank,
-and I'll get the light sorted.
-We'll see you soon.
-Perfect, thank you.
-All right, bye.
-I'm going to get changed.
Beki and Jay's brief is fun-loving...
which, to me, has got "cheese" written all over it.
I mean, she can look like a cheerleader.
The thing that's also not helping, she's got a mustard top.
If this shoot was a burger, it would be a triple cheese.
You look at the camera. And I'll look at you.
With this photo, Beki and Jay must prove they're not chalk and cheese.
But with their preppy look, will it be more like cheese and cheese?
They actually, as a wholesome, loving couple...
Actually, it works.
-Fabulous. Shall we have a look at those?
-Let's see what we've got. Use the arrows.
As much as my reservations were there when they walked in,
closer in, I think you do believe it.
There was a lot of teeth going on.
-I think sometimes if you over-smile, it looks a bit cheesy.
So it's just having that right capture.
-The connection with the eyes is important.
The bubbly couple have pleasantly surprised Nicky,
and now they've chosen their photo, they've finally decided what their image is.
I think our brief was very clean, very simple.
It captures our personalities. We wanted to look very loving and in love, and believable as well,
cos that's what the main thing is, I think, for the brand to be believable and look happy together.
Will you just get on with it and go and get the shot?
Even though Stuart and Helen are last, they're still not ready.
She hasn't got her outfit on yet. Now come on.
They are waiting upstairs. Now come on!
Bring them on. Where are they? Come on!
You know, does he understand the word "rush"?
Through the competition, I have been told by all the judges
that I waffle too much and go on.
We're going to try and play a little bit on that,
her sort of telling me to be quiet.
-She's sort of saying "sshh", but in quite a...
-..teasing, engaging way.
With this shot, the couple are hoping to convince the judges
that they finally realise their potential.
But has Stuart been over-thinking it again?
So, you're up against that wall.
# This is where I'll be, so heavenly
-# So come and dance with me... #
-You're always angry. Ssh.
# So sexy, I'm sexy
# So come and dance with me Michael... #
Well done, guys, we'll put those in.
Give us a couple of mins.
I think I need to completely change because I look lopsided.
Even if we don't win, I'm happy.
-I am happy with how it's gone.
-Well done, guys.
Well done for putting so much work into it.
My favourite couple is Stuart and Helen because
I think out of all of them, they think about
what they've got to do more. And they work together.
Bang on, perfect.
And now they have chosen a photo,
they're confident they've carved out a strong brand for themselves.
I think we got the picture that we wanted.
We're flipping happy. The whole thing went...
Because we have been so prepared, it was our game, really.
But just like the others, Stuart and Helen won't know
how they've done until the casting decision at the end of the week.
It's early morning at the Manchester mansions.
Although the couples would like to spend a day working on their bodies,
relationship judge Emma Kenny has arrived
with their next big challenge.
I'm a therapist who specialises in relationships.
I'm not here to judge the couples on how they look.
I'm here to assess the bond that they have between them.
It's looking a bit empty in a house.
So far I have tested the couples on chemistry,
romance, passion and compatibility.
Obviously, this is all about looking at the way
they are committed to each other.
Before they find out what the challenge is,
there's something I need to find out about them.
One of the things that's important to me is whether you want children in the future.
-He wants four.
Straight from the beginning we both said we want a massive family.
Before this I was much more of a baby person,
-as in I've always wanted kids.
-We both have a massive families.
I definitely want kids, we want two children.
I'm from a big family, so I love kids.
-Well, if they want kids...
Stuart, Helen, Beki, Jay.
..they've got them.
Can I have everyone in the make-up room please?
All of our couples have clearly expressed
that they want to have a family in the future.
Today, Jonathon is going to set them up with a task
that shows how adaptable they are around kids.
And whether they actually like them.
Guess what? Today you will be working with children!
And we want you to dress down and be like a casual family at home
with your little one, enjoying your home.
You will just have to wait and see, won't you?
I work with kids all the time, and I love kids,
so that's cool for me.
Don't have to imagine anything. I'm a natural, a natural.
# It is a hard-knock life for us... #
I've got a massive family, you've got a big family.
Before we came here, we did a little family shoot, didn't we? So...
I hope we get a good picture,
-but as far as being with kids, pretty confident.
-Hello, how were you? High-fives!
The great thing about this challenge is that our couples
absolutely believe this is about a photo-shoot.
Actually this is a guise for me getting to see
just how authentic their hopes and aspirations are for the future.
One, two, three! Let's do it!
First to play happy families are Damien and Chanel.
Chanel, it might be better if you turn your head that way, tilt it like that. That's it.
What I'm going to be looking for is first and foremost,
how comfortable are they around children?
How do they work with each other around children.
And don't lean out of the shot too much. Keep it tight in, that's nice.
Are they looking after the kids
or are they looking after the way that they look.
Try cracking the eggs in.
'Bless them, they're doing their best,'
but they ignored Jayden.
He was just sat there trying his best.
The girl became the centre of attention.
That's good. Great stuff.
It seems the youngest couple are more focused
on getting the best photo than relating to the kids.
Remember you laugh. I know you're excellent at laughing, I've seen it.
Were you smiling? Were you smiling? OK.
She was going, "Smile, laugh really loud,"
but the children are getting a bit confused by that direction
and it's feeling a bit pressured.
Look how wet you are, Jayden. Jayden!
The first shoot is over.
And it doesn't look like it's convinced Chanel
to speed up her plans for a family.
-It is quite a way off for us still.
-We said late twenties.
About ten years away.
Damien seems quite comfortable with the children,
but Chanel seemed a bit like an annoyed older sister.
Are you smiling? Yes, were you smiling? Yes, OK.
It was fun, but it's harder with kids.
It could be at a holiday shoot.
-We need that element of fun.
Is this what you do on holiday?
Rather than focusing on the image,
Jay and Beki are more concerned that the kids are enjoying themselves,
and it seems to be working.
Look at the size of that duck, now that is big.
They seem really content with the props, the fact they are in the pool,
everything's working out and they look really happy.
Big smile, big smile!
Just seeing kids like that makes me think,
-I cant wait to be a parent.
-Can't wait to have them.
And the bubbly couple's relaxed approach
has impressed on the modelling front.
I think we were all a bit concerned about them
for the first half of this competition,
but the more I work with them, the more versatile they are becoming.
Are you ready, guys, one like that. Gorgeous. That's nice.
A lot more confident about winning it
because we had a really good day today.
-I think we worked well.
-Aw! Thank you.
Jay and Beki, oh my God!
-Picture of the future.
They were relaxed, having lots of fun,
the kids were enjoying it and I would be really surprised
if their picture isn't the best of the day because they nailed it.
-That is a proper dad hairdo.
-Isn't it. Proper dad, I am.
As a dad himself, Stuart is confident
he can win over the kids to capture the most convincing photo.
It's better than normal cos me normal mum and dad always shout at me.
THEY ALL LAUGH
Crazy! Crazy frog.
But unfortunately for Stuart,
he won't win this challenge by behaving like a child.
Why is everybody laughing?
Keep going, go wild!
Big smiles, big smile.
Just move them that way a bit.
Stuart and Helen are really interested in the kids being happy.
Maybe they're getting a bit lost sometimes
with their positions and not hearing the camera girl having to operate
their direction quite a lot.
Go wild. Wild!
Great splashing off the kids,
but you two need to keep that eye contact with me a little bit.
And Stuart seems to have forgotten
he's meant to be posing for a photo.
-Lots of smiles, straight to me. Lots of fun.
-Don't hunch that shoulder.
-One more. That's it.
-Drop that shoulder, Stuart before I slap you.
-Keep them straight. Posture.
'Jonathan is clearly not happy with Stuart.'
It is kind of like, "I'm a dad, no balance,
"let's just have fun with the kids."
I don't understand. If you look at the pictures there's a shoulder issue.
He was managing children as opposed to maybe managing the photograph.
But it's now about winning.
Have you had a nice time?
'This is the final relationship task,
'but realistically there have been many before.
'So my job is going to be to reflect on all of those'
and to draw from the knowledge that I need
to make my decision and final judgement.
Which is not going to be easy.
Now there's one last test before one of the couples
lands the lucrative modelling contract.
Your task is to deliver that one image that embodies you.
When it came to creating a brand,
the sky's was the limit for Damien and Chanel.
Imagine you're at home. That's what we want.
Jay and Beki struggled to decide on their look.
The thing that we need to show is versatility.
But it was Stuart and Helen who did their homework.
My favourite couple is Stuart and Helen
because they think about what they've got to do.
You still smiling?
In the relationship challenge, Damien and Chanel weren't at home with their family.
They ignored Jayden.
Stuart tried a little too hard.
Whilst Jay and Becki's relaxed approach impressed on all fronts.
So who will win the modelling contract?
Damien and Chanel,
Jay and Beki,
or Stuart and Helen?
There will be one last modelling challenge.
And it doesn't get any tougher than this.
The theme today is weddings.
Today you're going to take part,
not in a photo shoot but in a catwalk wedding show.
Just to let you know, Jody is going to be waiting upstairs
so he'll be watching your every move. You're on your own
and I want you to show me your commitment
and just work it, work it, work it, and be the best you can be.
Come on then, let's go.
For the final challenge, the judges want to see
how they cope under the pressure of modelling for a live audience.
All these wedding dresses are getting me in the mood for marriage.
Stuart, I think I'm ready.
I love it! No!
-I don't want to!
-I don't want to take it off!
As the most experienced models in the group,
Stuart and Helen are confident this challenge is theirs for the taking.
I'm definitely up for this. Get on that catwalk, strut your stuff a bit.
-This is the one we're going to get right, aren't we?
The important one. We'll peak in the final. That's the plan.
But while Stuart and Helen are ultra-confident,
Damien and Chanel, the youngest couple, have no idea what to expect.
I don't really know what to feel about this, really.
I'm excited more than anything.
We're new to it so we just want to learn the basics.
First pair of shoes I think I've had in about four years.
-Beki, are you ready to see your Prince Charming in his outfit?
-Come and show your wife.
-Would you say "I do" to this?
But at least Damien and Chanel are the right height for the job.
Cos I'm only 5'3", I never thought I'd get the opportunity to do it.
So, for me, this is like a dream come true.
To actually do the catwalk and show people I can do it.
-And obviously be bridal with Jay as well.
-Get that in there.
With the hot couples dressed and ready,
modelling judge Jody Furlong has arrived
and he's brought company.
Oh, here we go.
Come in, guys.
-We've got Lydia and Jody to tell you what you're doing.
Jody Furlong is one of the fashion industry's most respected casting directors.
It's his job to decide which pair has the looks to win the contract.
I'm looking for a couple whose looks compliment each other.
They could have the best relationship in the world
but if they don't look good together, it doesn't work for me.
And to help him judge this challenge,
international catwalk model Lydia Kowalska.
You've got quite a quick change
and that's just basically how it is.
If you're going to model, that's the time you've got.
So you've got to just work with it and be there on time.
You'll never feel relaxed getting into the dress,
it's just literally you could be sweating at times. You just have to get into that next outfit.
When you see the crowd, you have to go for it.
The minute you leave the stage, run back here and get changed into your second outfit.
In a catwalk, it's there and then. You've got one chance.
Girls, easiest thing is whip the shoes off and run.
The shoes will stop you from running.
It's more competitive because you're like, "I can walk better than you."
-The most important thing is don't fall over.
So, good luck, guys.
-We'll be keeping an eye on every single movement.
Each couple will model two outfits
and if they don't get changed quickly enough, the runway will be
left empty, which in modelling terms is a complete disaster.
OK, we're nearly ready. Stuart and Helen, you're the first couple up.
Let your adrenalin do the walking.
It'll be a challenge - they haven't done anything in front of a live audience yet.
They've got no idea how quickly they've got to change as well.
-Could be pretty chaotic.
-First on stage, it's Stuart and Helen.
As you stand on that first step,
your heart's pounding and your stomach's like...
-Then as you step out...
-You just go for it.
-..you sort of absorb it
and you just enjoy the feeling of the nerves.
-He just comes across as quite cheesy to me. He's like, "Now smile."
Right, Stuart, get those clothes off.
-You've got 30 seconds before you've got to get back on.
Next it's novices Damien and Chanel.
-Why does he walk in front of her?
-I don't know. I have no idea.
-They should be walking together, or he should escort her.
Do you know what?
It's something so simple if you think about it,
but it just gets stressful.
But luckily, the ever-confident Chanel is lighting up the catwalk.
-How gorgeous does Chanel look?
-She does look gorgeous.
-That's a tough dress to walk in.
A couple of times I got caught and I was a bit like...
I just had to keep trying to not show that I was tripping up!
-Oh, the dress kept getting caught on my heel!
-Did you trip?
-I almost did!
You didn't, so just get into your next look and make sure you don't screw it up this time.
Last on the catwalk are Beki and Jay.
You're just like pounding down the stage, aren't you,
and then everybody's looking at you.
But will the judges buy them as a couple?
She has very short legs and it's just accentuating it, that dress. It's true!
I had the veil on, so it was like real-life emotion.
Getting all emotional. It was almost like...
Had a little tear in my eye! SHE GIGGLES
She looks like it's her special day.
You'd want to buy something from her, she looks so pretty.
Yeah, she's selling it, basically.
Start undressing as you're running. Take the jacket off.
If she was nine inches taller..
Come on, Jay and Beki! Helen and Stuart are just about to go back on.
-Boobs, bums, legs everywhere!
-It's just flesh everywhere, it's great!
-You just have to get on with it.
As the couples complete their final walk, this is their last chance
to show Jody why they deserve the life-changing modelling contract.
Shall we get in our first positions for the finale, Helen?
Enjoy this moment.
-God, that was stressful!
-I'm zoning still.
I'm like in catwalk mode at the moment. It was wicked.
-The adrenalin is going boom, boom, boom, boom inside.
-I wish we had got married,
it did feel like that down there.
And that's what I kept imagining, to bring that real sparkle to our eyes.
You hope you've got it right,
but you won't know until you speak to them, so fingers crossed.
With the show over,
Jody and Lydia will now pull apart their performances,
and in the world of catwalk, every little detail is taken into account.
Helen is the most editorial catwalk girl here.
Whereas Stuart lacks...! SHE LAUGHS
It's like, "Relax."
It was like he was having a wander to the shops!
Chanel is very poised all the time.
We need her to relax and not worry about it so much.
-Damien, I thought he was quite good.
-Bit stern at first, but when he was smiling...
With Jay, he was doing something funny with his feet,
-putting his heels down first, very precisely.
-I didn't see that.
-The girl who was the natural at walking was Beki!
She knows she's not catwalk,
so she just relaxes into it and that's what you need.
She would never in a million years get booked for a catwalk show. Ever.
Last meal. It's still quite surreal we've actually got to the final.
-That's a big achievement in itself.
-I'd still be devastated if I don't win it.
There's literally now nothing else we can do.
If I didn't win, I'd probably go home just as proud as if I did win.
I don't think there's a hot favourite now. It can be anyone's game.
The three couples are on their way to final casting decision of the competition.
In just a few hours, one pair will walk away victorious
and with a life-changing joint modelling contract.
-We've given up a lot to be here.
-I think we have a lot of potential and we have a lot to offer.
Everyone to us is a competitor, everyone's an enemy, really,
I don't care what we have to say or do.
To win the contract would be on another planet.
Now we want to be models more than ever.
It's not just a shot in the dark for us, this is a career, this is a dream and a passion.
We don't want to take anything less than winning.
Second place gets absolutely nothing.
They get taken back home, that's it. It's literally win or bust.
We haven't come all this way to go out second, we want to be the winners.
This week's been about commitment - your commitment to each other, but also to this competition.
Your challenge was to create an image that sold yourselves as a brand
representing the essence of what you are as a couple.
Jay and Beki, let's see your best picture.
-What was your concept as a couple?
-We really hit home about personality.
Together we're a cute couple, we're always happy,
we've got good hair, skin and teeth,
things like that cos that's what will sell you and make money.
I'm disappointed with the picture you chose.
I'd like more eye contact from Beki, because I think, of this couple
- no disrespect to Jay - but Beki is the personality.
Stuart and Helen, let's see your picture.
First, can you tell us what your concept for your brand was?
We wanted to get what Helen really is personality-wise.
She seems like this nice, quiet, sweet girl - which she is - and I just waffle on all the time,
but actually, she's the strong one.
It's trying to show she's telling me to shut up.
I was SO impressed with your preparation.
Where you lost me was with your concept, which isn't a concept.
"Helen's strong and I talk too much", that's not a brand.
Damien and Chanel, let's see your picture.
So, tell me, what was your concept?
Basically, our concept was what is us and what is real to us?
The first thing that comes into my mind is that we are fiery,
but in that, we've got a lot of passion and love for each other
which keeps us connected and strong.
Can I just say, at last,
I've found someone who actually understood what this was all about
and did it properly. It's exactly what I would've done for you too.
I think there's sides to you that are a bit immature at times,
but you give off a much more grown-up and sophisticated look,
and here you don't look like teenagers.
-Thank you very much, that is great to hear. Thanks.
With commitment as this week's theme,
you took part in a photo shoot where you had to pose with children which
also gave us a glimpse into what you might look like if you had a family.
Jay and Becky, let's look at your picture.
From my point of view, just watching you with the children,
you made the effort and you enjoyed yourself. You seemed natural,
but you didn't forget the fact that you were being photographed
so there was a balance there.
So, Stuart and Helen, what did you think of it?
I probably got a bit too carried away with Adam playing
a bit too much.
You're scaring him away!
I felt, I'll be honest, "My God, bit too much effort", with respect.
The art of having of good relationships
is all about being natural.
Damien and Chanel, let's see your best picture.
I'd say it was probably one of our hardest shots to get,
cos we knew we had to get this shot, but we couldn't
concentrate on ourselves, and that was our main concern.
It was like the one time I've watched you looking like
you were being watched,
I felt like you felt you were just being massively tested
around how you engaged and held those young people and children.
It was kind of, it felt a little bit contrived because of that.
So your final challenge this week was appearing in a wedding-themed
Damien and Chanel, I thought you improved a lot.
-Beki, I mean, as you know, not to be horrible...
In a million years, you'd never get near a catwalk show
but you were really good and you had a really natural smile and way about you.
And I thought, Helen, you look absolutely stunning on the catwalk.
You really did.
And you two are the most physically catwalk couple of everybody here.
So one couple's about to go home now.
We're going to go and make the decision on who that is.
Now the judges will send home one of the couples,
based not only on this week's challenges,
but the last six weeks of tests.
Jay and Beki really did start off quietly in this group.
They didn't really stand out.
In the last few weeks, they've shown their true colours
and they've been a really great couple to contend with.
I've got absolutely no issues with Helen and Stuart modelling.
And the photographer loved them.
I think it'd be a real shame to see them two go.
Damien and Chanel are really, really young,
but I've been hugely impressed by the maturity that they've shown
in the last few weeks.
But this is a really tough decision. It's horrible.
Stuart and Helen, when you walked into the competition,
I said they're the best-looking couple here.
They looked the most like models. But I haven't seen
any progression, really.
We are talking about the same issues this week
that we were talking about the first week.
And I'm not sure that you'd be really able, as a brand,
to open yourselves up to the public.
For those reasons...
..you're going home.
See you later, guys.
-Thanks for everything, good luck, everyone.
-See you. Thanks for everything.
# One night to be confused
# One night to speed up truth
# We had a promise made for... #
-I've got to say, I didn't think it'd be you so quickly.
-How are you doing?
-kind of expected it. I didn't want to have say to Helen.
We never hit our potential, sort of thing, so...
It's been quite tough on you, I think,
because everyone's had this really high expectation.
Bye, guys. See you. Take care.
-Disappointing. You're absolutely gutted.
Course you are, cos you wanted to win the contract and that sort of stuff. Erm...
But, yeah, it's sort of... We've only got ourselves to blame.
The next two minutes are probably the most important of the whole competition
cos I need to know now exactly why you should win this.
It's not just about taking some nice pictures for us.
It's about letting the world know who we are as people.
We've got the highest likeability factor
and we don't believe these two want it half as much as we do.
Cos we came into this competition wanting to win from the offset,
not wanting to say, "OK, I might try modelling." This is what we want to do as a dream and that's it.
Just because we haven't liked something for as long as you
doesn't mean we've got any less passion for it.
I'm not sure people that will buy into them as a couple anyway.
We look better together. That's all I'm saying.
We've shown we're ready for this industry modelling-wise and relationship-wise.
If you don't turn up cos you've had an argument,
it doesn't matter what you look like - you're not at the job
and you're going to create a bad reputation, and that's a huge risk to take with Damien and Chanel.
For me, if you're an argumentative couple, it's a big no-no.
Jealousy is the nastiest trait you can possibly have,
and if you can't stick by your man,
it's no good having that face, cos it ain't going to last.
It's not a jealousy issue between me and Damien.
I don't expect you to know our relationship over six weeks,
but we've been six years.
We've been through a lot, never doubt our relationship.
With them, it's a happy image, lovely, but we are more edgy.
People like to see someone they're going to get more out of,
cos they see us in a magazine, they'll want to know more about us.
If people see them all happy and smiling, it might come across fake.
I'm not taking that!
This is all we've ever wanted the whole time.
I just don't believe you can create passion
for something you didn't really want to do before.
Oh, no, we definitely did.
Cos you weren't there.
That's why we're here right now.
We have worked so hard.
We are sitting here because this is what we want.
If you wanted to do it, you'd do it.
Chanel and Damien, there have been a few times for me
where I've seen some real concerns, like the jealousy issue.
And a feeling that maybe, out of all the couples,
you were the least ready for a commitment to a long-term brand.
Jay, you've been consistently
the best model in this show, undoubtedly.
You actually understand about modelling,
which a lot of people haven't done.
And Beki, you've worked so hard to get your performance,
but also your style, to gel together.
You've really come on strong over the past few weeks.
You feel very secure, very solid as a unit,
and close with all your family ties and bonds,
and you have a very clear direction.
So, Jay and Beki, Damien and Chanel, you are the final two couples.
But only one of you can win,
and we're now going to make that decision.
We deserve to win this competition.
Nobody should take this away from us,
because of all the hard work, the effort we've put in.
Jay and Beki, never thought they'd be in the final.
I don't know if the public buy into this nicey-nicey thing all the time.
Yeah, I don't feel that there's sexual energy
and chemistry that much around them. I suppose that is the other thing that I would say.
But they are going in for the whole likeability level.
The difference in height is still an issue for me.
All I'm thinking of at the moment is winning. And that's how it's been.
Damien and Chanel have been quite inconsistent with their photos.
They've had some disappointing weeks.
And also, Chanel can be a little bit of a diva,
and I'm not sure that's a great thing to have on set.
Damien and Chanel to be in the final, for me, feels strange -
they're the people who've caused me most concern.
They have shown jealous streaks, they have been non-compliant at times,
and there has been a dominance issue. Those are key considerations
when making a decision about who's going to win.
-So, we've made a decision.
-Absolutely made a decision.
Guys, we've decided who's going to win the competition
and who's going to receive the modelling contract.
Jay and Beki, you know that I've got issues with you
as a modelling couple, and how compatible you are.
But over the past few weeks, you've really shown me what good models
you can be, and your passion today was very, very impressive.
Damien and Chanel.
I've witnessed you come together
and show a great amount of determination and maturity
for what really is a very young age.
So, the couple that are going to win this competition are...
..Damien and Chanel.
Oh, my God!
I just want to say well done to both couples.
You've come a long way, and this is not the final two that we envisaged,
so it's your hard work that got you both here.
And commiserations, Jay and Beki.
Of all the couples, you've made the most progress for modelling terms.
You've listened and learned from this, and I hope you can take
what you've learned here and go on successfully in modelling.
Enjoyed every minute, embraced it all, and it's not going to stop us,
we're still going to make it as models, so thanks a lot.
Yeah, thank you.
Damien and Chanel, well done. It's amazing.
-Oh, my God!
-I can't believe it!
-It was touch and go!
Well done, congratulations.
Are you ready for your new life?
You're Britain's hottest couple!
Through the door!
-Amazing. There you go, baby.
-We're Britain's hottest couple!
-Oh, I'm sorry.
-How are you doing? You all right?
So, where do we go from here? How are you feeling about the future?
Just makes you more ambitious, to be honest.
Just makes us want to do it even more
and achieve so much more from it. It's just the beginning, really.
-We are Britain's hottest couple.
-After six weeks, like, I just...
I didn't know we'd be here. I just didn't...
Our life's completely changed.
Literally means so much, our whole journey literally starts here.
And we know it's going to be a lot of hard work
and we know we've got to put a lot of effort into it,
but this is something we're prepared to do.
We won this for a reason.
And this is our future.

Series that searches for the ultimate model couple - but in this show, just looking gorgeous will not be enough. The judges are looking for a real couple with knockout model potential, but also a rock-solid emotional bond that will see them together forever. After all, they cannot award the modelling contract to a pair who are going to split up.
It is the final and just three couples remain in the battle for the 12-month contract. Now they must overcome a series of testing challenges to see if they are committed to being models and to each other. There is a surprise from a celebrity supermodel who oversees their first catwalk challenge; they must play happy families in a cheesy catalogue shoot; and relationship judge Emma prepares them for life as a model couple with some marriage guidance counselling designed to uncover their deepest, darkest fears.
Only one couple will become professional models and only one pair will be crowned Britain's hottest couple. But who will it be? The gloves are off as the wannabes fight tooth and claw to prove to the judges it should be them.
