Davina McCall will return to our screens on Monday night (September 11) for brand new dating series, My Mum, Your Dad. The TV presenter will host the ITV series, which has been dubbed ‘middle aged Love Island’.

The show 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 who is host Davina McCall and what other TV shows has she presented? Here’s everything you need to know.
