The Romance Retreat

Is it actually happening? A version of Love Island for older people? It looks like!

ITV have put out a casting call for, 'vibrant single parents,' in search of love to take part in a new reality series called The Romance Retreat.

The blurb reads, 'ITV1 are looking for vibrant single parents from across the UK who are in search of love, for a brand new dating show!'

'This is the ONLY dating show where single parents can search for love, by spending time in a luxury retreat, where all the parents have been nominated by their grown up children.'

But who will host such a show? Davina McCall has thrown her hat in the ring.

On the Diary of a CEO podcast, she said she has no shame or embarrassment about emailing a TV company with ideas.

She admitted she's, "literally begging ITV to let [her] present midlife Love Island."

"I could fill a villa in Love Island with middle-aged people with the best back stories you have ever heard in your life."

"They've lived a life – they're widows, they're people who have been through horrific divorces."

"They are people who have split up with somebody and decided they want to try going out with somebody the same sex as them."

And so would we!
