We’re counting down the days untilLove Island 2021 arrives on our screens (less than two months to go now!) but with Winter Love Island scrapped, we’re already wondering what’s next once the series ends in August. Luckily, new ITV2 dating show, Ready To Mingle sounds like it’ll be just our type.
What is Ready To Mingle?
Ready To Mingle will see 12 gorgeous lads battling it out to win the heart of one sexy single lady as they all live under one roof together. So far, so Bachelorette. But the twist is that not all of the boys are single - some are being secretly controlled by their other halves in an attempt to win the show - and a cash prize.
The single lady will have to suss out which of her suitors are for real and which are playing the game through a series of games and dates, eliminating them one by one. And don’t worry - everyone involved will be in on the rules of the game, from the single lady starring to the partners of the lads in the house.
The show is hosted by Katherine Ryan and is set to be filmed in a £4m mansion in Devon. Katherine said:
I am so excited to be a part of this new dating game show. How could I say no? It’s like nothing we’ve seen before but still with all the drama and dating dilemmas we love to see, and I’ll be there front row as it all unfolds!
