An all-star line-up has been revealed for ITV's new celebrity series Our Shirley Valentine Summer.
ITV’s brand new series Our Shirley Valentine Summer will see Melinda Messenger, Sian Lloyd, Nancy Dell’Olio, Aggie MacKenzie, Ninia Benjamin, Lizzie Cundy, Annabel Giles, and Ingrid Tarrant, escape to a Greek island for the summer.
The channel describes the new show as a "warm and celebratory series."
Under the glow of the Mediterranean sun the cast will live together under one roof, as they discover the islands, something new about themselves and the ups and downs of communal living.
They are all single and at a crossroads in their lives. All of them harbour a passion to try something new or pursue long held dreams in an attempt to transform their lives, for the better.
Some want the opportunity to learn a new skill or test drive a new career, and many will be looking for love. Far from being ready to retire, they all share a desire to work out what to do with the third chapter of their lives.
Each of the ladies has a personal goal, for example, overcoming a marriage breakdown, losing weight and building self-confidence or finding a new career. Many of them are also looking for love and will spend time dating.
For some, it could be their first date in a decade, whilst others are looking for someone special to spend the rest of their lives with.
From the makers of The Real Marigold Hotel, this feel good series captures the beauty of the Greek Islands: the people, the colours and the way of life, as this group of brave women explore what else life can offer them.
The series concludes tonight (Thursday, August 9) at 9PM on ITV.
In the final episode of Our Shirley Valentine Summer, the women are determined to make the most of their remaining time on the island of Naxos. Annabel Giles braves her first date in years, Aggie MacKenzie faces her greatest fear and Melinda Messenger makes a life changing decision about her future.
As a farewell to the locals, the group bring a slice of Britain to the island by hosting a traditional afternoon tea and entertain the crowd with their own attempt at a classic Greek dance.
