Make a date for return of Blind Date!
HIT TV show Blind Date is to make a comeback after more than 13 years off the air.
The popular dating programme was fronted by the late Cilla Black
(above) for its 18-year run on ITV.
And it will return to screens later this year on Channel 5. A source said: “Blind
Date is the original dating show and it’s huge news to bring it back.
“It’s a classic format that will be rebooted to make it young, sexy and modern… expect sparks to fly!
“In an age of Tinder, you have got to earn the right to love on this show.”
It will be produced by So Television – which also makes The Graham Norton Show for the BBC. Blind Date, which launched in 1985, came to an end in 2003 after Cilla announced she was quitting live on air.
