Lockdown may have stopped Devonians from meeting physically, but it certainly has not dampened the spirits of singles looking for love. And to inspire them now that real dates can start again in Devon, the hugely popular TV show ‘Blind Date’ is back for a special evening on Saturday 27th June, on-line via Facebook and Instagram Live. Organised by the matchmaking and social events company, Pi Society, they are currently looking for Devon-based contestants aged between 45 and 65 to take part.
“We have seen a huge increase in people joining us during lockdown as those who have spent weeks on their own realise the importance of love and companionship in their lives. So, we thought it would be great fun to resurrect the fantastic tradition of Saturday night TV of the past, with a new version of Cilla’s hilarious ‘Blind Date’,” comments Nicky Dunn, owner of Pi Society.
“Ours will run on social media so that everyone can access it, and it will be hosted by the Totnes resident and actress, Lucy Matthews who will be encouraging the lovely contestants to show off their personalities and answer the three questions as excitingly as possible!
“She will even have her very own ‘Graham’ to recap on all the answers and help the love-birds make the difficult decision of who to pick for their blind date,” she said. “And the lucky couple will have a gorgeous special date all set up for them as their prize!”
Pi Society is looking for eight single men and women living in Devon, aged between 45 – 65 and selecting contestants now. If this is you and you are available to take part on Saturday 27th June at 8pm via Zoom, please fill in the following registration form at https://share.hsforms.com/1EVQ3e15sTUu6KTnK9D1LLQ2fhyt.
