About Make Love, Fake Love

This dating show follows a single girl searching for her perfect partner from amongst twelve guys, all desperate to impress and share a big money prize. However, in a mischievous twist, not everyone is single and ready to mingle. Half the boys are in relationships and their partners are watching next door, having permitted them to do whatever it takes to win the girl’s heart. Because if they are the final choice, they win the money for themselves and their partner. How far will the boys go to prove they’re not in a relationship? Can our girl identify the single guys during the elimination process? And who will she pick as her dream man?

The original format in the UK, Ready to Mingle, is created by Potato, part of ITV Studios and internationally distributed by ITV Studios.
