Dannii Minogue will host a new dating show

Dannii Minogue will host new BBC Three show 'I Kissed A Boy', which will follow 10 gay men as they look for love in Europe

Dannii Minogue will host a new gay dating show on BBC Three.

The former 'X Factor' judge is "thrilled" to be fronting 'I Kissed a Boy', a programme which will follow 10 single men in Europe as they search for their Mr. Right.

While they will be paired with their strongest match and kiss when they meet, "everyone is a possible love interest" and things can change over the course of the eight-part series.

Dannii said: "There are millions of people in the UK looking for love. And I believe love is for everyone. 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.

"I have 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' – so this gives me that flutter-of-love feeling inside too, just to be a part of it. Let's hope there is love, sealed with a kiss!"

The 'This Is It' hitmaker also shared a casting call on Twitter and wrote: "Having the opportunity to be a part of this show is giving me that flutter-of-love feeling.

I’m so thrilled that a gay dating show is joining the TV love-search mix. Let’s hope we see some beautiful love stories on our screens, sealed with a kiss! Happy assistant to Cupid."

BBC Three bosses think the programme has "huge potential".

The channel's controller, Fiona Campbell, said in a statement: "I Kissed a Boy is a brilliant new show in the dating space that we think has huge potential for BBC Three.

"We hope our audience will love the heady mix of drama and heart-warming romance that we know the series will bring."
