SURPRISE surprise!

After a successful return to TV earlier this year, Blind Date is back for another series on Channel 5 and they're looking for contestants.

The popular dating programme was fronted by the late Cilla Black for its entire 18-year run on ITV.

And after a 13 year break, it returned to screens on Channel 5 hosted by Paul O'Grady. 

The matchmaking show sees three individuals of the same sex being introduced to the audience.

They were then asked a number of questions by a contestant of the opposite sex who could not see them.

The contestant would then pick one of the individuals for a date based on their responses.

A spokesman added: "If you're tired of Tinder or bored of bad dates, we can help you find love.

"We are looking for more single people across the UK again to be a part of the show in 2018."

All applicants must be aged 18 or over.
