Singletons and engaged couples are wanted for upcoming filming of hit TV shows Undateables and Don’t Tell the Bride.
Uplifting Channel 4 show The Undateables is making a return – and producers are now casting new contestants. The emotion-tugging series has become a staple in homes up and down the country as people struggling to find love get their chance. Among those to feature on the show in the past was Justin Coling – who suffers from neurofibromatosis – a rare genetic condition that causes tumours to grow on his face .
The BAFTA Award-winning programme follows singles with conditions like Tourette’s, learning disabilities and Down syndrome, as members of their group take part in blind dates, matchmaking and speed-dating.
An Undateables spokesperson said: “Once again we will be following disabled people and those with a variety of conditions through the highs and lows of their quest to find love.
“As with all previous series, we will explore and challenge some of the issues and barriers faced. ‘Betty’ will work with one or more introductions agencies that find matches for their clients across the UK, based on what has been specified by that client in terms of common interests, likes, dislikes, and location. ‘Betty’ will be closely involved with the matching process and work with the agencies who will seek to provide introductions with both disabled and non-disabled people.”
If you would like the chance to meet your match and are interested in taking part, contact the show on 020 7290 0223. Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t Tell the Bride
If you’re engaged, you could have your wedding paid for by TV bosses. Don’t Tell the Bride is casting couples who want to tie the knot. The show – which sees couples live apart while the groom plans the special day – is offering those who take part £13,000 for their wedding.
Grooms have just three weeks to plan all elements of the big day, including the hen and stag dos. The programme usually features bizarre weddings, with one bride zip-lining into her wedding at 100mph.
