New celebrity dating show
According to MTV International: “Single AF will take celebrities on a live social quest for love around the world that fans can follow and weigh in on over social. The singles must be up for anything and willing to play the dating game ‘the MTV way’.” The show is from Gobstopper TV, an independent production company based in London that has previously produced shows like Show Us Ur Phone, which launched on MTV’s Snapchat in September 2016, and Just Tattoo Of Us.
The social media rollout starts on 26th June and ends 11th July, and can be followed @MTVsingle AF and with #MTVsingle AF. Born in Newcastle, he has an English degree from Queen Mary, London and after working for the NHS, trained as a journalist with the Press Association.
Filming begun for the second series in late January with the series launching in February 2017, with filming finishing in early March.
The duo taking responsibility for matching the celebs to their prospective soulmates are dating agency owner Eden Blackman and matchmaker Nadia Essex.
The cameras will capture the dates in full – the cringey moments, the awkward bits, the goodnight kisses and analyse it all to death.
This initial social media-focused launch will precede the planned November start for the regular series, according to Variety.
Participants include Irish pop stars Jedward, Teen Mom contestant Farrah Abraham, Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson, Elliot Crawford, Courtney Act and Casey Johnson.
