Get ready for the UK’s first ever gay dating show, where the path to love is never straight. It’s loud, it’s proud…and it all starts with a kiss.
Fly in pop icon Dannii Minogue to play Cupid, and it’s the party you do not want to miss. 10 single guys are matched up, and meet for the first time… with a kiss. No small talk. No messages. Just one kiss to test out their chemistry straight away. Will it be a polite peck? Or a passionate snog? And ultimately, will that first kiss lead to love?
I Kissed a Boy is packed with explosive drama, gripping cliffhangers and powerful untold stories - from coming out in a strict religious family, to the pressures of body image in the gay dating scene, to navigating self-acceptance, sex and first same-sex relationships.
Serving joy, entertainment and a sparkling soundtrack full of gay anthems, I Kissed a Boy is the groundbreaking show that will celebrate the queer community and invites all viewers to join the party.
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.”
I Kissed a Boy launches soon on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer. TX details and cast information will be revealed in due course.
