Stop everything. If you’ve been as obsessed with Netflix’s “Love Is Blind” drama as us, then we have the news you’ve been waiting for. The reality dating show is coming to the UK. The streaming platform tweeted the news on 8 Feb., telling followers it had “Big news”, along with a link on how to apply.
The format for the UK version is expected to be the same as its US counterpart: a group of men and women will spend 10 days dating each other in purpose-built pods where they talk through a wall and are unable to see each other. If any feel a genuine connection, then they can make a marriage proposal, after which the couple meets face to face. They then head on holiday, move in together, meet each other’s families, and plan a wedding in four weeks. The series culminates with couples at the altar deciding whether to say, “I do”.
If you’ve been following the lives of the series 1 cast, like Jessica Batten and her baby news, have been desperate for updates on the series 3 couples, or are still invested in the Natalie Lee and Shayne Jensen drama of series 2, then now is your chance at finding love on the show yourself. If you want to take part and experience life in the pods, then you can access the online application here. The closing date is 1 June, so it’s unlikely we’ll be seeing the first UK series this side of summer, but we’re already buzzing about who the cast will be.
