Joe Sugg's production company Final Straw Productions has partnered with BBC Studios to pilot a new dating show pilot. Details on how to apply can be found here.

A teaser shares: "The idea behind the series is for singles to show off their good bits and their icky bits on the first date - why wait for 6 months to find out you’re not suited when you could find out now and save time?"

A source told The Sun: "It’s an ­exciting new dating format all about honesty, which means the singletons will find out both the best bits and the bad bits of the other contestants they fancy...

"The singles won’t be able to keep their not-so-good personality traits under wraps for long, with Joe helping both sides of each couple find out the truth. Of course, there’s also going to be a twist or two to keep things interesting."

It follows Sugg's previous pilot for a new VR game show, Virtually Impossible, was was produced in partnership with Stellify Media. Joe Sugg hosts 7 contestants through a childlike assault course as quickly as possible.

All very straightforward except for one catch – all the contestants are in VR and this simple course now becomes their worst nightmare. From monsters in mazes to terrifying zip wires Joe serves up simple tasks that become Virtually Impossible.

Joe Sugg said: “Virtually Impossible is an extremely exciting project that we have been developing for some time. It’s amazing to be working with Sony Pictures Television and Stellify Media and finally seeing it all come to fruition. I’m sure it will bring surprise, entertainment and emotion to everyone at home.”

Virtually Impossible is available now on Joe Sugg's YouTube channel.
