Dinner Date

Monday, 9 August 2010, 12:30PM – 1:30PM on ITV1

ITV1 Daytime series DINNER DATE puts love on the menu for single guys and girls.

Transmitting from Monday 9th August at 12.30pm for six weeks, each programme will give one lucky person the chance to find true love over three meals, each cooked by a blind date in their own home.

At the start of each programme a singleton is given five three-course menus to choose from, each tenderly put together by a potential date eager to make an impression. The guest will pick three dinner dates purely on the basis of which menus they prefer. Over the three nights they’ll meet the people behind the menus, going to each date’s home for dinner.

Delicious, dishy or dismal? Will it be love at first bite? At the end of those dates, the dinner guest will choose which one of the three hosts they want to take out for a romantic dinner. All three are dolled up and ready to go but two of them will have to stay home – alone.

The show was commissioned by Jo Clinton-Davis, ITV Controller of Popular Factual, and Alison Sharman, ITV Director of Factual and Daytime Programmes.

Jo said: “Food and relationships are a perfect combination, and this format serves up delightful characters and delectable menus infused with wit, warmth and more than a hint of delicious play-along drama.”

The executive producer is Claire Collinson-Jones for Hat Trick Productions.
