Production has begun on series 3 of the programme, in which fashion expert Gok Wan helps brides find their dream wedding dress. “We’ve got all sorts of [safety] protocols in place,” said Jo Haddock, development executive at programme-makers True North. “We’re hoping to make 10 episodes leading up to Christmas.”
Speaking at the RTS London Christmas Lecture, he predicted that despite the growth of streaming services a lot of people would still be watching live, scheduled TV in a decade.
He said: “In ten years’ time linear TV will be distributed by IPTV, but scheduled TV will still be important, that more passive way of consuming curated content will have a very important role, not least in news and entertainment.”
Former Love Island contestant Oliva Buckland has landed her first presenting role in new TLC series Second Chance Dresses.
The 22-part series will see Olivia – who is engaged to her Love Island co-star Alex Bowen – help brides-to-be track down the perfect dress on the pre-loved market.
In each episode she will travel around the country with a future bride and meet with women who are hoping to give their dress a second chance to shine.
