The series will follow Brits who have all fallen madly in love online as they each make the potentially life changing decision to cross international waters to meet their long-distance lovers for the very first time.

The show will not only capture the very first time the couples set eyes on each other but also follow them as they get to know each other and find out if they have been honest with each other about who they are and their intentions.

The couples will spend quality time on each other’s home turf, moving into wherever their other half calls home. They will bed into their partner’s real life, meeting friends and family, discovering all about their lover and their lifestyle, and deal with the realities of their day to day life.

Dumebi first saw Mazi in 2019 in a video on Instagram. She first noticed his nice smile and his fashion sense and thought he came across as a confident guy, she messaged him first and didn’t receive a response for over a month.


When Mazi finally saw Dumebi’s message and looked at her page, he thought she was beautiful, cool and seemed like his type. Mazi tried calling Dumebi but his ego took a hit when she said she was too busy to chat to him - really she was just embarrassed that it had taken a month for him to respond.
