Tuning in to watch young adults navigate orchestrated romantic relationships has become a popular pastime in the UK, thanks to the success of ITV’s Love Island. Building on this winning formula, the channel is now introducing a new dating series called My Mum, Your Dad, which focuses on single parents in their 40s and 50s who are eager to find love. Developed by TV star Davina McCall, who also hosts the show, My Mum, Your Dad follows the participants over ten nights as they attend therapy sessions and workshops to improve their chances of finding a compatible partner. The unique twist is that the parents are unaware that their adult children are observing their every move from a “control room,” acting as relationship experts and even deciding their parents’ daily activities and potential suitors. The show takes place in a picturesque mansion in West Sussex, providing a stark contrast to the tropical setting of Love Island. While the contestants are attractive, there won’t be any near-nakedness or bedroom cameras. The aim of the show is for the participants to find love, with no cash prize at stake. In anticipation of the highly-anticipated show, we introduce six breakout stars exclusively: Sharon and Tia, and Natalie and Kaliel.
Sharon Benson, a 53-year-old safeguarding and welfare officer from Sunderland, is still hopeful about finding love, despite past relationship difficulties. Her daughter Tia, a 24-year-old professional influencer, nominated her for the show. Over the years, Sharon has experienced domestic violence, infidelity, and heartbreak. Her last relationship ended in betrayal, which shattered her trust in men. However, despite choosing to be single for the past six years, Sharon often feels lonely and worries about the future. Tia, who supports her mother’s decision to participate in the show, admits that witnessing her mother’s romantic struggles has made her cautious about relationships. She hopes that the show will help her mother find someone deserving of her love.
Natalie Russell, 44, from Bournemouth, has overcome a troubled past, including drug addiction and time spent in prison and rehab facilities. As a result, Natalie has been unable to create a stable, two-parent family for her two sons. However, she has completely turned her life around and now works as a self-esteem and relationship recovery coach. Natalie’s elder son Kaliel, 20, a gas and plumbing apprentice, nominated his mother for the show in the hopes that she will finally find the love and stability she has always craved. Growing up without a father had a profound impact on Natalie, and she is determined to break the cycle and create a healthy relationship for herself and her children.
Tuning in to watch the trials and tribulations of single parents in their 40s and 50s as they search for love promises to be just as captivating as Love Island. With the added twist of their adult children overseeing their dating lives, My Mum, Your Dad is sure to provide heartwarming and emotional moments. So, get ready for this highly anticipated show and meet these six inspiring individuals who are taking a leap of faith in their quest for love.
