Romeo + Duet is a new singing/dating format where single contributors pick a date based on their suitors song.
Divided into four rounds, with a picker in each, they’ll get to hear up to 4 singers serenade them, but the picker cannot see the singer.
Set in a studio, the pickers reside on top of a bespoke balcony, in a blind spot to the performance area. The picker will only get to see the performer if they walk all the way down the balcony, passing “the step of no return”. And from there, it triggers the curtain drop to reveal their match.
After picking their perfect match, each newly formed pairing will leave the main stage and head to the greenroom. With the clock ticking, they’ll learn to sing a duet together, all whilst getting to know each other a little better.
The show culminates in the Duet Off, where we welcome back the four couples to perform their duets. Power is then handed over to our studio audience, as they’ll vote for their winning couple of the episode, sending them on a romantic getaway.
A host is to be announced, however The Sun speculate that Emily Atack is favourite to front the new format on ITV2.
The show is set to record at the end of January 2022 at Dock10 Studios in Manchester. More information will be revealed in due course.
