Five Guys a Week is the brand new dating show from Channel 4 – here’s all you need to know.
Five Guys a Week is the new dating show that puts the woman in charge.
Fast-tracking the ‘getting to know you’ part of the relationship, one single girl invites five guys who are looking for love to move into her home and live with her for a week… all at the same time.
The men will go everywhere with their host en-masse: whether that’s to work, on a night out with mates, or for dinner with the parents, with a combination of fixed rig and roaming cameras following all the action.
The picker must eliminate four of the men by the end of the week, whittling them down to the last man standing. Will he turn out to be the perfect match?
Five Guys a Week air date
Five Guys a Week started at 9:15PM on Tuesday, March 10 on Channel 4.
The first five episodes in the first series aired weekly.
You’re be able to watch episodes online and catch up via the All4 Player here.

Hope welcomes her five ginger guys into the family home in Manchester that she shares with her mum Janet and stepdad Harold. They are entrepreneur Daryl, theatre marketing manager Paul, law student Stephen, fluent Chinese speaker Ryan, and trainee reiki master Matt from the Rhondda Valley.
