Love Island bosses are working new dating show

‘Love Island’ bosses are working on a new dating show for middle-aged people looking for love.

The makers of Love Island are working on a new dating show for people in their 40s and 50s

The proposed dating programme – operating under the working title of ‘Your Mum, My Dad’ by production company, Lifted Entertainment – will see contestants in their 40s and 50s be put in pairs at a retreat, complete with assistance from their adult kids and is set to debut in 2023.

“Times change and the current generation in their 40s and 50s still care about how they look, are fit and healthy, into fashion and are ready to let their hair down.

“This show will give those who settled down young a second chance at love while they still feel in their prime.

“And, let’s face it, they know their minds, will be capable of intelligent conversation and are likely to be much more adventurous — all ingredients regular Love Island sometimes lacks.”

This idea – which is currently in development stages – comes after concerns have been made about the maturity of some of the contestants.

Women’s Aid and Refuge, domestic abuse charities have voiced concerned about some of the men’s “toxic” behaviour.

“At Women’s Aid we are being tagged into a stream of Twitter posts, with viewers of Love Island highlighting the misogyny and controlling behaviour being shown on screen.

“This is clearly more than talking about any individual contestants, and a programme based around the formation of romantic relationships must have guidelines on what behaviour is acceptable and unacceptable in those relationships.

“We are talking to ITV, and they have shared with us information on their inclusion training, but what appears to be missing is specific information on abusive relationships and an understanding of controlling behaviour in relationships.”

The ITV dating show returned again this summer from a brand new villa with photos by MarkMeets  Media shared online being republished across thousands of sites.

Love Island 2022 began on Monday, June 6 at 9 pm on ITV 2
