This will be amazing!

Long before Tinder and First Dates Ireland, we had iconic dating show Blind Date. The hit TV show is set to make a comeback to our screens, since it finished thirteen years ago. It was hosted by the late Cilla Black, for a whopper eighteen years. Over the years, hundreds of hopefuls found love, and others just had the craic! It's also been reported that during it's stint on tv, three couples got married! 

 

According to sources, it will return to Channel 5 before the year is out. A source told The Sun, 'Blind Date is the original dating show and it's huge news to bring it back. It's a classic format that will be rebooted to make it young, sexy and modern. Expect sparks to fly. In an age of Tinder, you have got to earn the right to love on this show.'

Since the announcement, there has been much speculation about who is going to step up to the mark and become the new host for the show. 

Bookies faves at the moment are Graham Norton and Davina McCall.
