The hit romance show fronted by Davina McCall will return with casting now open!
My Mum, Your Dad sees grown-up kids nominate their single parents to head into a luxury country retreat in the hope of finding love later in life.
Fronted by Davina McCall, the first series aired on ITV1 over 10 nights in September and regularly trended as the number-one streamed programme on ITVX as well as becoming ITV's biggest new peak-time entertainment format, attracting an average audience of more than 2m on all devices.
Once again the grown-up kids return to the surveillance room, dubbed the ‘Bunker’, where they are entrusted with the fate of their single parents as they search for love in the retreat.
Watching along, there will be some new twists along the way as they get a front-row seat to how their parents fare in their bid to make a romantic connection. And, in the end, they’ll ultimately decide if they give their blessing to any potential matches.
My Mum, Your Dad is produced by Lifted Entertainment, part of ITV Studios. It was commissioned for ITV by Director of Reality Commissioning Paul Mortimer and Commissioning Editor of Reality TV Amanda Stavri.
Speaking about the show's return, ITV's Director of Reality and Acquisitions, Paul Mortimer, said "The positive reaction to series one was unprecedented in my experience. From widower Roger finding new love, to the grown-up kids cringing in the secret Bunker as their parents dusted down their dating moves, this was a fresh and welcome take on TV matchmaking. I'm so pleased to be able to once again open the retreat to more single parents in 2024."
To which Managing Director of Lifted Entertainment, Richard Cowles, added "The heartfelt reaction to this show was incredible and we are absolutely delighted that ITV are bringing it back for another series. There was real joy in watching the amazing relationships between the grown-up kids and their parents; they cried as their parents' vulnerabilities showed and cringed as new connections and dates played out. My Mum, Your Dad has heart, warmth and laughs in every show and that really resonated with viewers. With casting now open, we can't wait to find a new bunch of single parents looking for love."
My Mum, Your Dad was created by father and daughter Haley and Greg Daniels and the format has now been commissioned in 10 territories, including the US, Sweden, Germany, France, New Zealand and Australia, where it has also returned for a second series.
Casting is now open for grown-up kids to nominate their single parents here.
