New blind dating show

We have all heard the long rant about the mad ex-partner — that’s a big no for me.

Dates in which nobody talks about their past relationships are far more refreshing.

Mid Life Blind Date is a new column for those of us who are venturing back to dating and need advice, reassurance and the solidarity of knowing we are not alone.

Every week we’ll send a couple out for dinner and report back on their date, with a little advice thrown in to help the rest of us.

The new series is expected to air on Friday nights and will be produced by So Television and Stellify Media, a firm part-owned by Sony Pictures Television.
