More details have emerged around the next 'Love Island' spin-off, 'My Mum, Your Dad', which will focus on single parents looking for love.

More information has been announced on the upcoming dating show being branded ‘middle-aged Love Island, a dating show titled My Mum, Your Dad.

The series will see single parents come together for a Love Island-esque dating show as their kids watch on and play matchmakers.

Former Big Brother host Davina was announced as the show’s host in March, saying she ‘manifested’ the role, and reality TV fans are looking forward to another dating series.

My Mum, Your Dad will follow the dating journey of single parents as they try to find success in love. What the cast members won’t realise is that their children are watching their every movie from a nearby location and will play cupid along the way.

My Mum, Your Dad will air on Monday 11th September on ITV1 and ITVX. It's the perfect autumnal watch!

The series was pre-recorded over a six-week period earlier on in the year, with 10 hour-long episodes.

It was shot at Viola House in a ‘romantic countryside location’ worlds away from the sun-soaked Love Island villa despite its similar format.
