Since 2015, the ITV reality show has involved a group of men and women in a series of games and quests with a partner, giving them a chance to mingle with each other until they find the love of their life.

The show is organized like Big Brother in a house with many cameras as a fly-on-the-wall series as contestants chase love and a huge cash prize.

Caroline Flack hosted the dating show, with comedian Iain Stirling as narrator, before Stirling’s wife Laura Whitmore took over after Flack’s death in 2020.
