A Brand New Gay Reality Dating Show Is Coming & Dannii Minogue Is Hosting

I Kissed A Boy
BBC

I Kissed a Boy is coming our way very soon!

They kissed some boys, and they liked it!

The UK is getting its first-ever exclusively gay reality dating show on television: I Kissed a Boy. The new series will air on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer, with singer Dannii Minogue appearing as the host. Set in Italy, 10 guys will enter a villa looking for love… but before talking, flirting, or doing anything else, the contestants will have to share a kiss first.

Minogue wrote in a tweet:

“In a picture-perfect Masseria in Italy... it all starts with a kiss for 10 boys in their search for love. I Kissed a Boy is the UK’s first-ever gay dating show, and it was a pleasure for me to be there to help these guys in their search for love.”

I Kissed a Boy was first announced by the BBC back in May 2022. The series was described in a release:

“As soon as they meet, they kiss. No small-talk, no ‘flanter,’ just one rom-com-worthy moment that might just take their breath away.”

In a free-for-all format similar to shows like Love Island and Too Hot To Handle, “everyone is a possible love interest” on I Kissed a Boy. This is different from past queer dating shows like Finding Prince Charming, 12 Dates of Christmas, and 24 Hours of Love, where one leading gay man looked for love among a group of contestants in the style of The Bachelor franchise.

We’re already excited to watch I Kissed a Boy once it comes out!
