Oti Mabuse - ITV dating show

Former Strictly Come Dancing dancer Oti Mabuse is to host a new ITV dating show, filmed at dock10 studios in MediaCity, Salford.

The seven-part dating series, called Romeo & Duet, has been created and produced by Goat Films and developed from an original idea by brothers Ivor and David Baddiel.

The show initially gives contestants the opportunity to sing one song to entice a singleton down from the balcony.

The newly formed couple will then head off on a duet-date to learn a duet, before returning later in the show to perform that number in a singing competition against the other couples to be crowned the winners.

The crowd’s chosen couple then get whisked off for another date.

Throughout the series, Mabuse is joined on stage by musical director Vikki Stone and her live band Vikki Stone & The Heartbeats.

The show is set to start at 7pm on Saturday 16th April on ITV and ITV Hub.
