No likey, no lighty! Take Me Out is back and its producers want Bristol’s singles to man the love lift and join the cohort of girls for the new series.


The show, presented by the ever-inimitable Paddy McGuinness, sees a series of boys attempt to impress an audience of 30 girls with a various combination of skill, talent or charm. Failure to do will prompt the girls to turn off their individual lights to signal their disinterest, with the bloke choosing from the remaining set of illuminated suitors to take on a date to the mythical island of… FERNANDOS!


It is an age-old formula for lasting love, with scores of deep and meaningful relationships finding their origin in the romantic hotspot of ITV’s Maidstone Studio.

If Cupid ha been stricken from your Christmas card list and you fancy shaking up your love life a bit, this could be the opportunity that you’ve been waiting for! The show’s producers are in the process of recruiting for the new series and have an eye on Bristol’s talent.


They have also issued a statement, which reads:

"Are you a single guy looking to find love by coming down the love lift? Are you a single lady hoping to meet Mr Right as part of our flirty thirty?

"We are looking for fun, flirty singles who want to be a part of the nation's favourite dating show!

"We will be holding auditions up and down the country between August and October so don't hesitate to fill in your application form now- all you need to do is send us an email for an application form."
