Produced by Made's in-house production team, it's said to be the first time a mobile app has co-created a television programme.

David Emin, Made's director of commercial content, said: "We are thrilled to be working in association with JigTalk. Theirs is an innovative, fun and responsive new dating app and a perfect partner for Made’s very first dating show."

The show will be aired across the entire Made TV network in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, Liverpool and Tyne & Wear.

It will feature a "unique mix of blindfolds, awkward tasks and Cilla-esque probing questions" about each contestant.

Alex Durrant, co-founder of Leeds-based JigTalk, added: "The show encompasses everything we love about JigTalk: encouraging daters to lead with their personalities, bringing excitement back into dating and unleashing the comedian in everyone!"
