A new series of Blind Date is on its way and applications are now open.

If you're single, over 18 and looking for love then you can apply for the revived series, which is set to air on Channel 5 later this year.

Applications close on Sunday, March 12 so you've only a few days to apply by emailing BlindDate@sotelevision.co.uk if you're interested.

As yet no details about the new series have been confirmed but Kylie Minogue has been tipped to host.

The former ITV series - which was fronted by the late Cilla Black - will move to Channel 5 for its new run more than a decade after it was last on air.

"Blind Date is the original dating show and it’s huge news to bring it back," a source told The Sun previously. "It’s a classic format that will be rebooted to make it young, sexy and modern. Expect sparks to fly.

“In an age of Tinder, you have got to earn the right to love on this show.”

The new Blind Date is apparently set to air on Friday nights, possibly alongside Big Brother or Celebrity Big Brother in the summer.

While Geordie Shore's Vicky Pattison was originally the favourite to host it all, it's now been claimed that Channel 5 are keen to get Kylie Minogue on board instead.

"Bosses have been taken aback by the amount of buzz around the series so are rethinking their original ideas," a source explained. “They know this is their chance to land an A-lister and Kylie has been discussed because she is so likeable.

“Blind Date has such a huge legacy and Channel 5 has had so much success with Celebrity Big Brother and Lip Sync Battle, it gives them a calling card to attract the best.”
