Classic dating show
The show had a format similar to the show known in Australia as Perfect Match or in the US as The Dating Game.
Blind Date originally ran on Saturday nights from 30 November 1985 to on ITV. The new series began airing on 17 June 2017 in its usual Saturday night slot and is produced by So Television, Olga TV and Stellify Media, a firm part-owned by Sony Pictures Television.
However, ITV briefly aired a similar replacement show in 2004 hosted by Davina Mc Call, called Love on a Saturday Night and since 2010, Take Me Out, hosted by Paddy Mc Guinness which is still airing.
