Dannii Minogue announces return to screens hosting new BBC dating show

BBC Three has announced a brand new dating show hosted by singer, TV star and LGBTQ+ ally Dannii Minogue and produced by Twofour.

Appearing to take inspiration from Katy Perry's hit song 'I Kissed a Girl', the eight-part reality show, called I Kissed a Boy, follows ten single men as they head to Europe to find their Mr Right, and it all starts with locking lips.

Before the lucky singletons arrive, they will be paired up with their strongest match and as soon as they meet, they kiss.

There will be no small-talk, no ‘banter’, just one romantic kiss that will, hopefully, take their breath away – everyone is a potential love interest.

Throughout the series, we will find out where sparks will fly, whose eyes might wander, and who will end up together in the ultimate summer of love.

Dannii Minogue says: “There are millions of people in the UK looking for love. And I believe love is for everyone. So I am so thrilled for a gay dating show to be entering the sea of other dating shows that have existed on TV for years.


"I have been a staunch ally of the LGBTQ+ community for as long as I can remember.

"My close friends know that my dream job title would be ‘Cupid’ – so this gives me that flutter-of-love feeling inside too, just to be a part of it. Let’s hope there is love, sealed with a kiss!”

Fiona Campbell, Controller, BBC Three, says: “I Kissed a Boy is a brilliant new show in the dating space that we think has huge potential for BBC Three.

"We hope our audience will love the heady mix of drama and heart-warming romance that we know the series will bring.”

David Brindley, Chief Creative Officer, Twofour, says: "We're thrilled to be bringing this exciting reality event to BBC Three and iPlayer and to shine a bright light on gay dating.

"This series will revel in telling stories we don't always hear of, witness heart-warming new relationships blossom and celebrate inclusivity from start to finish."
