Nev Schulman would like to do a UK version of 'Catfish' to catch deceptive lovers who use the dating app Tinder
Nev Schulman wants to make a UK version of 'Catfish'.
The 30-year-old television personality - who presents the US version of the hit show - believes the Great British public's love of dating app Tinder would be a perfect platform for the show to find deceptive lovers.
He said: "We definitely want to do a UK show.
"We could catch our first 'Tinderfish' with you guys."
And Nev - who himself fell for an internet lover that turned out to be middle aged woman - has admitted he always has to remind himself of two things before he begins to track down someone's love interest.
He added to The Sun newspaper: "Every time I start an episode I have to remind myself of two things. One, that as crazy and obvious as it may seem, that the situations these people are in aren't happening or aren't happening as they think it is, it is very real to them. It's something serious to them.
"They wouldn't go on TV if they didn't really care, if they didn't want to meet this person because they feel strongly for them.
"But then I also have to remind myself that I was that hopeless romantic, desperately in love with some girl who was ridiculously perfect. That's how I keep my head on straight."
The new series returns to MTVUK on Monday (02.03.15).
