Tv dating show take me out

Once a match has been made, couples will be taken out on the ultimate date, which will be captured on camera for all to be revealed on the next show.

SABC 1 viewers will remember the first incarnation of the show which aired on the channel a few years ago.

Like the version on SABC 1, the show will be hosted by South African celeb Phat Joe.

Every few minutes a swirling vortex would appear in the air next to Cilla, and she’d shove her hand into it, grabbing out handfuls of Scouse banter and showering it over the audience like confetti.

The presenter looks barely recognisable thanks to a strange hairstyle in some throwback stills from his appearance on ITV programme, God's Gift.

The 49-year-old was still known as Patrick back then judging by his name badge, when he attempted to win over female audience members in the hope of securing a date.

While Paddy is dressed simply in black jeans and a matching V-neck, his curly tresses are a long way from his very short 'do nowadays.

The truth of this inevitable transformation can be seen in the steps already taken up the light-entertainment evolutionary ladder, most notably in the DNA of ITV's long-running post-Blind Date offering, Take Me Out. When I think back to the Saturday nights I spent as a boy on the cusp of my teenage years, I can almost smell the heady scent of my mother's perfume as she readies herself for a night out with my step-dad and a gaggle of other couples.

That memory, that association, is never complete without Cilla Black – the nation's favourite surrogate aunty, always resplendent in a series of shoulder-padded blazers, smiling down on my childhood like a ghostly Yoda at the end of Return of the Jedi.

For the starry eyed couples lucky enough to be waved off at the top of the Take Me Out staircase, their romantic adventure begins the second they touch down on the glorious Isle of Fernando’s.

It’s then switchover time to ITV2 for Take Me Out: The Gossip as our newbie love matches check into the super sleek Casa Fernando to kick off their dates in style.

If the panel are not impressed they can switch off their podium lights immediately, and if it’s a total “black out”, the player instantly goes home, dateless.
