For the first time, Blind Date is introducing an all bisexual dating panel.
The brand new series of Blind Date will feature a first for the classic TV dating show – a mixed line-up of male and females, as they introduce bisexual daters to the format.
In an upcoming episode of the show presenter Paul O’Grady will introduce beauty consultant Jordan as he chooses between support worker Lily, model Jesse or French master’s student Zoe.
This new format element follows the introduction of all-male and all-female line-ups when the series returned in 2017.
Blind Date presenter Paul O’Grady said, “I’m delighted that Blind Date is continuing to be inclusive by giving a platform to those who identify as bisexual. It was a joy to film and I’m sure Cilla would have been proud”
In January 2018, Blind Date made history when it hosted an all male, all gay episode of the show.
Blind Date airs Sunday’s at 8pm on Channel 5, Catch the episode when it airs in May on Channel 5.
