In this brand-new dating series, a group of Brits and a group of Spaniards pair up at a dreamy Spanish country estate to see if they can find romance - despite not speaking each other's language.

Set in a stunning finca in Andalucía, host Davina McCall is joined by Spanish TV host, actor and singer Ricky Merino, who will interpret how the couples' relationships are developing.

The group of Brits who are seeking romance will travel to Spain, where they'll meet their potential partners - a group of Spanish speakers who are also looking for their own historia de amor - to test whether love is deeper than just words. Can sparks fly even with a language barrier to overcome?
