A group of parents are on the hunt for love as part of new ITV series, My Mum, Your Dad. The new dating series is aimed at single parents and will follow the same format as Love Island complete with luxury villa.

The show, which has been dubbed ‘middle aged Love Island’, will see the group of single parents from across the UK placed into the villa to live together as they try to find their perfect match. But in a classic reality TV twist - they won’t be alone.

The kids, who nominated their parents for the show, will be watching their parents’ every move from inside the retreat, from a nearby location called ‘The Bunker’. The surveillance room will allow them to watch every moment and they’ll also have a say in deciding their romantic journey on the show.

But which singletons will take part in the new ITV dating show? Here’s everything you need to know.
