Dannii Minogue to Host Gay Dating Show on BBC

I Kissed a Boy to air on BBC Three

Dannii Minogue + gay dating show = iconic. Dannii is set to host an eight-part reality series about 10 gay single men as they head to Europe to find their match.

“There are millions of people in the UK looking for love. And I believe love is for everyone,” Minogue said. “So I am so thrilled for a gay dating show to be entering the sea of other dating shows that have existed on TV for years.”

Minogue, who over the years has become a gay icon, added that she has been “a staunch ally of the LGBTQ+ community for as long as I can remember”.

“My close friends know that my dream job title would be ‘Cupid,’” she said, “so this gives me that flutter-of-love feeling inside too, just to be a part of it.”

Dannii recently confirmed that she will not go back to the judging panel on The Masked Singer Australia because of her commitments in the UK. “My fashion commitments in the UK conflict with scheduling of The Masked Singer filming this year, so unfortunately I won’t be returning,” she told The Herald Sun. “I am sure with borders opening there will be loads of great surprises for everyone. I’ve loved every minute working on TMS and will miss my Inspector Minogue role.”

On I Kissed A Boy, the contestants will be paired with who is considered to be their “strongest match”. The pair will immediately kiss to test the waters and see if there is a spark.

Over the course of the series, however, the participants are able to get to know one another freely without any attachments.

BBC Three has now opened up the opportunity for single guys who wish to participate on the Minogue gay dating show to apply, with closing date for applications being July 15.
