Take Me Out Celebrity special! All star line up of guys are looking for love...

Take Me Out: Celebrity Special on ITV

Take Me Out will treat viewers to the first of two Celebrity Specials tonight with a host of single stars braving the legendary Love Lift.

Matchmaker Paddy McGuinness will play cupid for some familiar faces as the dating show returns tonight.

Descending down the love lift are model and former rugby international Thom Evans, presenter Roman Kemp and Ritchie Neville from the boyband "Five".

Just as with the main show, Paddy will be waiting for each celebrity to exit the Love Lift, ready to introduce our star singletons to 30 gorgeous girls, who all return from the previous eight series of Take Me Out.

The ‘Flirty Thirty’ will be hoping to leave their lights on but ITV viewers will need to tune in to see who will impress the ladies enough to get a date or witness who might walk off to the infamous strains of ‘All By Myself.’

Ritchie said: “It was kind of the right place, right time to let Paddy have a go at match making for me. It’s only getting a grilling from 30 women, revealing secrets about yourself that you've never revealed before and potentially going on a first date, all in front of the great British public. What could possibly go wrong?”

Thom added: “As a fan of the show and having worked with Paddy briefly before, it was a pleasure to be invited onto the show for the Celebrity Special. I have a new found respect for guys facing that dreaded lift!”

Take Me Out Celebrity special airs tonight, December 31, at 8PM on ITV.

The second Take Me Out Celebrity special - to air later in 2017 - will feature James Argent, Melvin Odoom and Nile Wilson.

Series 9 of Take Me Out will also return to ITV soon.
