Meet The Parents: Holly Willoughby to host new ITV dating show

Holly Willoughby

Move over Take Me That and Paddy McGuinness, ITV has a new dating how on its way, hosted by Holly Willoughby.

Meet The Parents will see Holly putting the romantic futures of a group of singletons into the hands of the people who know them best: their parents.

In their quest to find love, nothing is off limits, as the picker looking for romance gets to ask their potential suitors’ parents anything. Mum and dad then get busy spilling the beans, on everything from their off-spring’s relationship history and grooming habits, to questionable celebrity crushes and cringe-worthy childhood stories.

While the parents are being quizzed, the guys and girls hoping to be chosen see and hear everything, and have no control over what their parents are revealing. However, if mum and dad go too far, they can make just one urgent phone call to speak to them.

Will these parental confessions help or hinder their kids’ chances of finding love?

Once the picker has finished grilling the parents, they make their decision. Though before they come face-to-face with their date, they get to meet the ones they turned down. Will they have made the right decision as they head straight from the studio to the date hopefully hand in hand?

Holly said of the brand new show: “We all know how embarrassing parents can be and nobody knows you better than they do."

She added: "I can’t wait to hear what humiliating secrets they’ll be revealing and see who will regret leaving their love life in the hands of their parents.”
