Katherine Ryan to host a new ITV dating game show called ‘Ready to Mingle’.
The 37-year-old comedian and presenter will front the upcoming series, which will follow a single girl in the search for her perfect partner as 12 male suitors compete for her affections and the chance to win a big money prize.
But that’s not all, as some of the boys are actually in relationships already, with their partners hoping to guide them to victory to score the money for themselves.
Taking up residence in a luxurious house, the single girl will get to know all the boys through activities, games and dates, eliminating each boy one-by-one until her ‘dream man’ remains.
In a statement, Katherine said: “I am so excited to be a part of this new dating game show. How could I say no? It’s like nothing we’ve seen before but still with all the drama and dating dilemmas we love to see, and I’ll be there front row as it all unfolds!”
‘Ready to Mingle’ is being produced by Potato, which is part of ITV Studios, and has been commissioned by ITV’s Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions Paul Mortimer, as well as Amanda Stavri, Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment for ITV.
Paul said in his own statement: "We're excited to announce the latest ITV2 entertainment format aimed at younger audiences- Ready to Mingle, and I'm so pleased that the amazing Katherine Ryan will be presiding over the game. Katherine's unique sense of humour coupled with all the drama of this new dating show ought to make for a binge-ably entertaining watch.”
The 19-part series will air on ITV2 and ITV Hub this autumn.
