Gay Take Me Out: Paddy McGuinness wants same-sex spin off

Take Me Out: Paddy McGuinness

Paddy McGuinness has said he wants to see a gay Take Me Out spin-off show.

The host of ITV dating series reckons a same sex version of the series would do well and has been calling on bosses to make it happen.

“I have asked about a gay version. We have done an OAP special and a celebrity special," Paddy said this week. “I have also asked about a reality TV special. It is in the mix. It is up to the powers that be.”

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, Paddy reveals how Take Me Out has so far produced two weddings, four engagements and two children.

“We have only been on five years. I love doing it. It is 80 per cent ad-libbed," he explained. “We had one guy on recently and one girl was his ex.

“It was awkward. He was Nick and his ex was called Looci. He did not say anything until round two.

“He was so terrified, he froze. He picked his ex for the date. We had to edit a lot out as people were crying."

Paddy confessed: “I even shed a tear – and I am from Bolton.”
