Mum and dad then get busy spilling the beans — on everything from their off-spring’s relationship history and grooming habits, to questionable celebrity crushes and cringe-worthy childhood storiesWould you put your love lives in the hands of your Mum and Dad? Perish the thought? Well, ITV is set to broadcast a new dating series ‘Meet The Parents’ which will be hosted by Holly Willoughby. Going by the description, it will likely push the envelope and push all the buttons on ‘getting personal’. How? Host Holly will put the romantic futures of a group of singletons into the hands of the people who know them best– their parents!
In their quest to find love, nothing is off limits, as the picker looking for romance gets to ask their potential suitors’ parents anything. Mum and dad then get busy spilling the beans — on everything from their off-spring’s relationship history and grooming habits, to questionable celebrity crushes and cringe-worthy childhood stories.
While the parents are being quizzed, the guys and girls hoping to be chosen see and hear everything, and have no control over what their parents are revealing. However, if mum and dad go too far, they can make just one urgent phone call to speak to them!
But wait, here’s a quick teaser that’s sure to whet your appetite, probably enough to want to find out how to catch it in India.
Will these parental confessions help or hinder their kids’ chances of finding love? Once the picker has finished grilling the parents, they make their decision. Though before they come face-to- face with their date, they get to meet the ones they turned down. Will they have made the right decision as they head straight from the studio to the date — hopefully hand in hand?
Holly has said, “We all know how embarrassing parents can be and nobody knows you better than they do. I can’t wait to hear what humiliating secrets they’ll be revealing and see who will regret leaving their love life in the hands of their parents.”
I sense a delightful opportunity to hover, vulturesque, atop the aspiring romantics’ misery! Now this is the stuff reality television is all about!
