ITV1 have announced a brand new show called ‘The Romance Retreat’ which sounds very similar to Love Island but for parents.
ITV has announced plans for a new show called ‘The Romance Retreat,’ which is aimed towards single parents but will be comparable to the well-known programme ‘Love Island’.
For the new dating show, ITV1 is looking for extroverted single parents from the UK who are looking for love.
‘The Romance Retreat’ is being billed as “the only dating show where single parents can look for love,” and applications are currently open. Selected participants will get the chance to stay at a luxurious retreat after being nominated by their children.
Davina McCall claimed on Stephen Bartlett’s “The Diary of a CEO” podcast recently that she frequently emails television networks with her own ideas and isn’t afraid to create opportunities for herself. Her most recent suggestion is to host a version of ‘Love Island’ with participants who are older and have more life experience.
Davina said: “I’m literally begging ITV to let me present mid-life Love Island,
“I could fill a villa in Love Island with the best backstories you have ever heard in your life.”
You can nominate your single parents using this form on ITV1’s website.
