Katherine Ryan ‘excited' to be hosting new dating game show

Not all the boys are single in a ‘mischievous twist'.

Katherine Ryan is to host a new dating game show.

The 37-year-old comic will front Ready To Mingle, to air on ITV2 this autumn.

Male suitors compete for a “single girl’s affections and the chance to win a big money prize”.

But, in “a mischievous twist”, not all the boys are single and some of them will be guided by their partners in pursuit of the prize.

Ryan said: “How could I say no? It’s like nothing we’ve seen before but still with all the drama and dating dilemmas we love to see, and I’ll be there front row as it all unfolds.”

Michael Kelpie, managing director at production company Potato, said: “You’re single. You’re on a date. You’re having a great time. Your date is ticking all your boxes. This could be the one, but… is he single?

“Ready To Mingle is a cheeky, playful dating game show and, with a big money prize up for grabs, anything can happen.

“Katherine’s undeniable comedic charm and quick wit make her the perfect host for this new format and we’re thrilled she is involved.”
