BBC Three has announced I Kissed a Boy (w/t), a brand new dating show produced by Twofour and hosted by singer, TV star and LGBTQ+ ally Dannii Minogue.
This eight-part reality event follows ten single men as they head to Europe to find their Mr Right, and it all starts with a kiss.
Before they arrive, the guys will be paired up with their strongest match and as soon as they meet, they kiss. No small-talk, no ‘flanter’, just one rom-com worthy moment that might just take their breath away.
But, in this show where preconceptions will be challenged and dramatic decisions made, everyone is a possible love interest.
Dannii Minogue says: “There are millions of people in the UK looking for love. And I believe love is for everyone. So I am so thrilled for a gay dating show to be entering the sea of other dating shows that have existed on TV for years...
"I have been a staunch ally of the LGBTQ+ community for as long as I can remember. My close friends know that my dream job title would be ‘Cupid’ - so this gives me that flutter-of-love feeling inside too, just to be a part of it. Let’s hope there is love, sealed with a kiss!”
David Brindley, Chief Creative Officer, Twofour, says: "We're thrilled to be bringing this exciting reality event to BBC Three and iPlayer, and to shine a bright light on gay dating. This series will revel in telling stories we don't always hear of, witness heart-warming new relationships blossom and celebrate inclusivity from start to finish."
Fiona Campbell, Controller, BBC Three, says: “I Kissed a Boy is a brilliant new show in the dating space that we think has huge potential for BBC Three. We hope our audience will love the heady mix of drama and heart-warming romance that we know the series will bring.”
