ITV2 has ordered a new dating show from former Xtra Factor presenter Matt Edmondson, which will see contestants couple up based on their fashion sense.

In 'Dress To Impress', three candidates will literally try to impress a potential match by dressing them up.

The singleton will then choose the outfit they like the most and go on a date with its creator.

Matt will present and narrate the series, setting the contestants style challenges and cheering them on along the way.

He said: "Those who know me know that I’m considered an EXPERT in both fashion (have you seen my knitwear?) and dating (have you seen me at a bowling alley?).

"It was only a matter of time before I had an idea for a TV show that covered both areas.

"I can’t wait to help fashion-conscious singles find love."

The broadcaster has ordered 30 hour-long episodes of the show, which will be co-produced by Matt's own company, Accidentally On Purpose.

If you fancy taking part, you can find details on how to apply on the ITV website.

Romance seems to be a trend in TV at the moment, with ITV2's programming line-up already featuring three dating shows.

It is, of course, the home of Love Island, which is thrashing rival Big Brother in the ratings this year.

The broadcaster also airs Dating In The Dark and Take Me Out spin-off show The Gossip.

Elsewhere, Channel 5 has revived Saturday night favourite Blind Date, and Channel 4 is bringing back Streetmate.

BBC Two has also commissioned 'Love In The Countryside', a new format inspired by ex-C5 show Farmer Wants A Wife.
