The Marriage Ref was a comedy panel game that aired on ITV from 18 June to 30 July 2011 and is hosted by Dermot O'Leary.


Three couples share their argument with the host and celebrity guests. After hearing both sides of the argument, each celebrity guest considers the strength and viability of the information presented, weighing in with their opinion. In the end, while the host may be swayed by the opinions of the celebrity guests, he is free to make his own to determine who is the victor in the debate.
