ITV has announced new dating show Romeo & Duet, a seven-part prime time series hosted by Oti Mabuse.
The Strictly Come Dancing professional will preside over musical matchmaking, with singletons standing on a beautiful balcony while being serenaded by suitors they can hear but not see.
They will have just one song to entice the singleton down from the balcony, and only then will they meet face-to-face.
If successful, the newly matched couples will then go on a duet-date to learn a duet to perform in a battle against all the other couples upon their return. Only one couple will be crowned winners.
Mabuse is no stranger to ITV screens having played detective on The Masked Dancer in 2021, and being set to appear on the panel of the forthcoming series of Dancing on Ice.
Mabuse said: “I’m so excited to be part of Romeo & Duet. It’s always been a dream of mine to host so this is a real pinch me moment, and it's a blessing for me to finally be able to share this news.
“I honestly can’t wait to get started! It’s about love with a little bit of a twist and showcase of talent, it’s fresh and fun, and I hope everyone’s going to love it as much as I do.”
Romeo & Duet will begin production in January 2022 to be broadcast on ITV and ITV Hub later this year.
